Former UP DGP Prakash Singh was also present on this occasion. Gen Singh honoured Prakash Singh with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

In his inaugural address, Dr General V K Singh said that better policing was possible only when police are easily accessible for the citizens. Secondly, the police have to be polite and courteous while dealing with the common man.

Prakash Singh said that police is always criticizedwithout knowing the hard reality behind their extremely difficult work conditions. If there is peace everywhere, still nobody gives respect to the police for their hard work. On the contrary, if something unpleasant incident happens, the police will have to face criticism and media trial starts underlining their failure. In such situations, undignified people will leave no stone unturned in mentally torturing the police. In order to change this kind of thinking process prevailing we have to initiate the process of Police Reform.

Santosh Kumar Saras, Managing Editor of Peacemaker magazine said that the “Peacemaker Veerta Award - 2018' was the beginning of the annual gallantry award.
