Home Minister Rajnath Singh today asked the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) to work towards imparting training in soft skills to all policemen in the country.
Singh conveyed this while reviewing here the progress of establishing Central Detective Training Institutes (CDTI) at Jaipur and Chandigarh. The two institutes will function under the BPRD.
The Home minister also urged for the identification of exceptional police officials at the district level who could be role models for others.
Singh stressed on imparting training skills to prevent cyber crimes and meet the challenges of the changing crime scenario.
The Home minister was given a presentation by Director General of the BPRD A P Maheshwari on the ongoing activities and future projects of the organisation.
A decision has been taken to set up the Centre for Correctional Administration at the recently inaugurated Central Academy for Police Training (CAPT) at Bhopal.
Separate centres for training in prosecution and traffic technologies will also be set up at CAPT, Bhopal.
The Home minister appreciated that the BPR&D has set up a web-portal named e-USTAAD where all the training manuals, presentations and course material have been made available for users. A mobile application is also being developed on these lines.
