police-4The first batch of police sub-inspectors trained under an all-new syllabus, revised after 26/11, will soon join police stations across the state, while constables in the making are gearing up for exams early next year after studying their revised syllabus. The revised syllabus for constables is based on recommendations of a police committee. In any situation, the first 10 minutes are the most crucial and the first responders include constables and sub-inspectors. The constable is akin to a foot soldier while the sub-inspector marks entry level at officer rank; he is posted as station officer and is the face of the force. The revised syllabus, which is still being given shape at training centres, gives equal emphasis on intelligence and physical strength. Increased training hours focus on “handling of a terrorist situation”, “for cadres who are otherwise trained in law-and-order situations”. This subject includes handling of situations like blasts. Experts will also train the recruits on gathering, filtering and developing information, and keeping tabs on terrorist movements and their ideologies. The new system includes seven subjects of 100 marks each for constables. The subjects that will see a change are globalization of crime, community policy, prevention of custodial death, and police ethics. Bureau report – NMTV News.
