Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal Monday said the state government has taken up a systematic approach to acquaint the police force with modern technological advancements for improving their capacity.
Laying the foundation stone of Assam Police Academy in the campus of Assam Police Training Centre here in Golaghat district, Sonowal said, "Training is the most important part in developing skill and ability of the police force. It enhances experience of the trainees, makes them more disciplined and improves their service quality".
"Keeping this in mind, our government has taken the step for establishment of Assam Police Academy with advanced training infrastructure in the state," he said.
Appreciating the role of Assam Police in upholding law and order in the state, Sonowal urged its personnel to work with more commitment to earn greater confidence of the people and called upon the police force to work as a team.
Expressing confidence that the proposed Academy would help in building the trainees as quality human resource, he emphasised on improving police-public relationship for better policing in the state.
Stating the new generation gives more importance to quality thinking and good behaviour, he observed that the Academy would fulfill the requirements of developing soft skills amongst the police force in the days to come.
CMD of Assam Police Housing Board Anil Kumar Jha, Director General of Police Kuladhar Saikia and Additional Chief Secretary in charge of Home Department Kumar Sanjay Krishna also spoke on the occasion.
