    First Sikh officer joins Victoria police

    Posted Fri Mar 11, 2011 7:10pm AEDT

    The first officer of the Sikh faith has been inducted into Victoria Police.

    Constable Amitoj Singh graduated from the Police Academy wearing a newly designed police-issue turban, featuring the service's checkerboard pattern.

    Constable Singh will be assigned to Endeavour Hills next week.

    He says serving the community is in the Sikh blood.

    "The founders of Sikh people, they have been standing up for the rights of the community all the time," he said.

    "Back in India right now, the Sikh regiment is the most prestigious and significant part of Indian army.

    "So this hereditary. Every Sikh person would like to serve the community if given the opportunity."
