Sri Lanka's Police force is often at the receiving end of brickbats from the public and not without good reasons. Among the perennial accusations against policemen are that they are on the take with motorists being the chief victims. Bouquets are rare and and they are only worth highlighting if for nothing else, to redress the balance and to demonstrate that there are indeed honest police officers who area pride to the force.

Two police officers attached to the Traffic Branch of the Ingiriya Police came across parcel containing Rs 105,000 on Saturday, which its owner had left behind at the Traffic Branch of the Police station.The owner of the parcel, Tambawitage Gunendra Upanandra, a resident of Maddawatta, Haltota had come to Ingiriya Police for some work. He had left the parcel and frantically gone looking for it every where not realising that he had left it at the police station.

Constable Manju and officer Kumarasiri of Ingiriya Police Traffic Branch found the parcel on a table in the police station and when checked found money inside it.

They informed the OIC, and on his instructions, handed over the money to the owner. The owner of the cash worshiped the OIC and said his men are a pride to the Sri Lanka Police Department.
