GUWAHATI, June 18 � To keep pace with the change of time, the Assam Police has been trying to introduce new training modules and efforts are on to find out the gap between the desired level and actual level of knowledge, skill and attitude of the men in uniform so that the gap can be bridged.
Talking to The Assam Tribune, the Inspector General of Police, TAP, BJ Mahanta said that a two day workshop was held recently with participation of Professor Anil Saxena of the National Police Academy, two officers of the rank of Deputy Inspector General of Police and 13 officers of the rank of Superintendents of Police where a module was prepared to improve the knowledge, skill and attitude of the police personnel. He said that such an exercise involving police personnel right from the constables to the DSPs would start soon to know the difference between the desired levels and the actual levels of knowledge, skill and attitude.
In the first phase, a get together of 40 constables, 40 Sub Inspectors and 20 members of the police-public committees was organized at Tezpur today where the knowledge, skill and attitude level of the men in uniform were tested. The scheme received enthusiastic response from the men in uniform. Similar exercises would be carried out all over the state in phased manner.
Mahanta further said that efforts are also on to make the classes in the Police Training College (PTC) Dergaon more interesting for the trainees and a model police station with lock up and other facilities has been set up in the PTC so that the trainees can be trained on various aspects of dealing with crimes right from receiving a complainant to registration of FIR and conducting probe into the cases.
