BPSPA to start six days of training on investigation of murder or homicide
Police personnel form other states will also take part in the training programme
BHUBANESWAR: With investigations often getting hampered due to lack of skills in the police force, a special training programme to address the issue is likely to be launched soon.
The idea is to ensure that there are at least two “specialist investigators'' in each district of the country.
Biju Patnaik State Police Academy (BPSPA), which has been identified as a regional-level State Police Training Academy, has said it is ready to start six days of training on investigation of murder or homicide upon receiving the green signal from the Bureau of Police research and Development under the Union Home Ministry.
Elaborating on the programme, BPSPA Director Satyajit Mohanty said as many as 10 courses for police investigators were finalised for core investigators who would be personnel above the rank of sub-inspector.
The 10 courses include investigation of murder or homicide cases, economic crimes, road accidents, bombs and explosives, weapons and tactics, interrogation techniques,
VIP security, forensic science, cyber crimes and human trafficking. Each course would have a capacity of 30-40 officers and the proposed module may be one or two-week duration.
However, BPSPA has opted to offer training on four types of investigations such as murder, economic crime, post blast scenario and cyber crime.
“We really needed expertise in post-blast investigation and cyber crime investigation. Since renowned investigators would be available for imparting training under the national programme, we really wanted State police personnel should be benefited,” said Mr. Mohanty.
The major attraction is the scope for lower-rung police personnel to undergo training even in the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States.
“Top five participants of these courses, who perform well in the India module, will also be considered for advanced training in developed countries. The BPRD will bear the expenditure on foreign training of these police officers,” the BPSPA director said.
The State police academy has already written to all district superintendents of police nominate at least one officer in the rank of inspector and another of Deputy Superintendent of Police to undergo special training.
Mr. Mohanty said the police personnel from other States would also take part in the training programme.
