Around 2000 jawans participated in this event. Where on one side, the jawans presented demonstrations. The event was graced with the presence of Dy. CM R R Patil, DGP A N Roy, Mumbai Police Commissioner Hasan Gafoor and Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner Ramrao Wagh among others. The event began with the parade by SRP jawans. Where on one side the men of the force showed wrestling, the women displayed their physical strength to the tee. Another highlight was the lezim dance. They jawans also left spectators spell bound with their motorcycles presentations. The winner of the event was the torch parade where the performers spelled words like Welcome, Jai Hind, Maharashtra Day and Police Tatoo.

DGP A N Roy said that these events help citizens know the Mumbai police force in the positive and closer light.
