Training of police personnel needs a thrust in a big way, says Union Home Minister

Inaugurates new building of Central Detective Training School, Ghaziabad

Ghaziabad. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh stressed that training of police personnel needs a thrust in a big way and hoped that institutions like Central Detective Training School (CDTS) will help augment their training capacity and quality as well.

Mr Singh was inaugurating the new building of the CDTS at Ghaziabad December 16. He also congratulated the BPR&D for the well-constructed campus with state-of-the-art training facilities.

He said that police need to stress more on investigation of cyber-crime, cellular and computer forensics, and investigation of crimes against women.

The Home Minister referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s directions to digitise most of the police training content and to adopt distant and e-learning systems in order to train the large number of police personnel being recruited every year.

Mr Singh expressed his concern at the lack of pre-promotional and post-promotional courses for police personnel. With promotions, the duties and responsibilities change and it is imperative that they be re-trained accordingly.

The Union Home Minister emphasised that in a democratic set up, the police need to deal with public in a more sensitive and rational way. He stressed that police personnel need to be equipped with appropriate soft skills, communication and negotiation skills in order to deal with public expressing the difference of opinion or their demands in a democratic set-up.

These trainings, he stressed, need to be taken up in a big way so that police can discharge more effectively and efficiently while dealing with public. This would also help in the day-to-day dealing with public and improve the image of police.

The Home Minister said there is the need to reward police personnel appropriately so as to keep their morale high. Towards this, he expressed satisfaction that the trophies and medals for excellence in police training that he had declared and instituted in September 2014 at Jaipur while addressing the 34th National Training Symposium organized by BPR&D has been implemented.

He congratulated the six police training institutions who won the national award and the 153 best police trainers for the year 2014-15. On the occasion he gave away the trophies to the heads of these police training institutions and seven best police trainers who were working in the NCR.

Mr Singh hoped that the best of the police trainers serve in the police training institutions so that the quality of police personnel on ground improves. To ensure that the morale of police trainers remains high, he made the following declarations –

• The number of Union Home Minister’s medals for excellence in police training may be doubled from 167 at present to 334.

• The prize money for the best police training institutions at the zonal level be raised from Rs 2 lakh at present to Rs 10 lakh.

• Rs 11000/- (Eleven thousand) each may be given as prize money to the best 334 police trainers of the police training institutions along with the medal.

• He also declared that the name of the Central Detective Training School may be changed to Central Detective Training Institute.

Dr Meeran C Borwankar, DG BPR&D, in her welcome address informed that there is an acute shortage of police training courses and they need to be increased so that every policeman can be re-trained at regular intervals rather than the long time of 16 years at present.

The function was attended by a large number of dignitaries including K Durga Prasad, DG CRPF; Aruna Bahuguna, Director, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy; Anurag Sharma, DGP Telangana and other dignitaries also attended the function. Several Ex-DGs of BPR&D also graced the occasion along with several public representatives.
