Nirmaljeet Singh Grewal, a resident of Sarabha village made the city proud after joining the Victoria police as a protective services officer (PSO). He was student of Satish Chander Dhawan (SCD) Government College.

After fulfilling all the requirements, he joined the Victoria police as PSO in September 2013 and now he would be a part of transit safety division of Victoria police from January 6. He was visiting India to meet his parents.

The PSO monitors peak hour train services. He/she proactively patrol the train platform, car parks and surrounds, dealing with anti-social behavior, property damage, alcohol and transport related offences as they arise.

After passing Bachelors of Science from SCD Government College, he went to Australia in 2005 for higher studies. He did post-graduate course in accounting and diploma in management before joining the police.

"I was trying to join Australian army but then I was selected in police after passing required exam. I passed the physical tests and then underwent training. However, when I was in India I had never thought of joining police in Australia," said Nirmaljeet.

He said police personals of Victoria were very cooperative and friendly with the public. There was no racism in the police.

His uncle Lajpal Singh said, "We are very happy with the achievement of Nirmaljeet. He always wanted to serve the community and we wish for his success."
