President Truong Tan Sang has hailed police chiefs and officers for their outstanding achievements in the emulation campaign “People’s police study and follow late President Ho Chi Minh’s six teachings”.

At a ceremony in Hanoi on June 4 to commemorate 65 years since the people’s police force first followed Uncle Ho’s six teachings and President Ho Chi Minh’s appeal for a patriotic emulation movement, Sang stressed that the Party, State and people appreciate loyalty, sacrifices and great contributions made by generations of police during the national revolutionary cause.

The President asked the police force to make the campaign “Studying and Following Uncle Ho’s six teachings” a core part of their regular Party activities in the time to come.

Apart from following the late President’s moral examples and implementing the Resolution of the 11 th National Party Congress on some urgent issues in current Party building, he asked them to further Party building activities, fight the degradation of political thought, morals and lifestyles, bureaucracy, corruption and wastefulness among cadres, Party members and officers of the people’s police force.

He stressed that they must work closely with departments and sectors to encourage all people to support the campaign as well as help ensure social security and order in the new situation.

The leader expressed his belief that the police will continue to lead the patriotic emulation movement and successfully fulfil their assigned tasks.

Minister of Public Security General Tran Dai Quang said in response to President Ho Chi Minh’s appeal for patriotic emulation during the fight against the French colonialists 65 years ago, the people’s police force has spread the movement in line with Uncle Ho’s six teachings and moral examples.

Over the past 65 years, more than 90 individuals and collectives have been honoured with Golden Star and Ho Chi Minh Orders. Hundreds were also awarded with the titles Hero of the Armed Forces and Hero of Labour, not to mention tens of thousands of other medals and orders also awarded.-VNA
