Shri Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary to inaugurate the 34th National Symposium of Heads of Police Training Institutions 

The Bureau of Police Training & Development (BPR&D), under the Ministry of Home Affairs, is the apex body at the national level to promote excellence and best values in policing. The objective of BPR&D is to equip the Indian Police to meet the challenges of the increasing diversity of crimes on the one hand and the rising public expectations on the other. This is sought to be achieved through training, research, and modernisation of the police forces. 

The 34th Symposium of Heads of Police Training Institutions would be held in New Delhi on 28th and 29th October, 2015. The BPR&D has been organizing the National Symposium annually to discuss and deliberate on police training issues to achieve excellence in training. The last training symposium was conducted at Rajasthan Police Academy, Jaipur. This is the first time in the history of the Symposium that it is being conducted at New Delhi.

The Minister of State for Home Affairs, Shri Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary would be the Chief Guest for the inaugural ceremony on 28th Oct 2015. In the symposium, more than 50 senior police officers of the rank of DGPs / ADGPs / IGPs of states, UTs, CBI, NIA, BSF, CRPF, other Para Military Forces and Central Police will discuss the police training issues to develop a roadmap to achieve excellence in training.

BPR&D is making efforts to bring in fresh perspectives on training content and methodologies from educational institutions of international repute, government organizations, corporate sector, and other related organizations from across the world. Subject experts from Indian School of Business (ISB) Hyderabad, Management Development Institute (MDI) Gurgaon, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), National Informatics Centre (NIC) etc. would address on strategies and methodologies for bringing about qualitative changes in police training in India.

In three separate sessions, the senior police officers will also deliberate on Building Institutions of Excellence and their management, Training capacity augmentation, new techniques and methodologies of physical training and also the best training practices that have yielded excellent results in various police training institutions.

Some of the important decisions arrived at the earlier symposia and implemented are:

• Augmentation of training capacity.

• Union Home Minister medal for excellence in police training and Union Home Minister trophy for the best police training institute at the national level.

• Increase in the number of specialized in-service training courses especially related to cyber-crimes, terrorism, financial frauds, use of technology in investigations etc.

It is BPR&D’s endeavour to announce the winner of trophies and medals on 26th January, 2016. It would prove to be a remarkable step for attracting talent in training institutes and improving overall quality of training.
