Chidambaram calls for doubling capacity of police training institutes

Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Wednesday called for doubling the capacity of police training institutes in the states as well as the number of policemen and women being recruited every year.


Raipur, June 2 : Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Wednesday called for doubling the capacity of police training institutes in the states as well as the number of policemen and women being recruited every year.

Speaking at the inaugural function of the 40th All India Police Science Congress here, Chidambaram said: "Most States have barely sufficient capacity to impart basic training to newly recruited constables. It is not often realised that the capacity of the training institutes limits the number of constables that can be recruited in any year in that State.

"Hence, the first order of business is to enhance the capacity of training institutes to at least double the present capacity and to recruit at least double the number of policemen and women that are being recruited every year," he added.

"Besides, specialised schools are necessary to train the police forces in forensic investigation, detective training, intelligence gathering, cyber crime and so on," he said.

"In order to assist the State Governments, we have decided to set up one Central Academy for Police Training (CAPT) with a capacity to train 2,600 personnel, two Central Detective Training Schools (CDTS), each with a capacity to train 400 personnel, and twenty Counter Insurgency and Anti-Terrorist Schools (CIAT) each with a capacity to train 1,000 personnel," he added.

He also said that Central Government has also made it mandatory for IPS officers to go through a Mid-Career Training Programme in three phases.

"At three levels of promotion, that is from SP to DIG, DIG to IG, and IG to ADG, we have now stipulated that the IPS officers shall undergo in-service training before he is promoted, he added.

He further said that the Central Government had also urged the States to adopt the salient recommendations of the National Police Commission.

"There are three recommendations which includes enactment of a new Police Act based on the model police act; constitution of a state police establishment board and setting up a police complaints board," he added.

Referring to technology, Chidambaram said it the best force multiplier. It relieves police personnel from routine and repetitive chores and allows them to concentrate on tasks that require application of intelligence, analysis, forecasting and planning.

"Technology can be inducted quickly into functions such as surveillance, communication, data management, inventory management and personnel management," he added.
