Dr Kiran Bedi Addresses 35th National Symposium of Heads of Police Training Institutions
NEW DELHI. The Lt. Governor, Puducherry Dr. Kiran Bedi addressed the 35th National Symposium of Heads of Police Training Institutions March 23 in New Delhi. The two-day Symposium was organised by the Bureau of Police Research and Development ( BPR&D), Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Kiran Bedi said that e-learning, which is the theme of this year’s symposium, cuts the cost, time and distance. She said that e-learning is an integral part of Digital India initiative of the Central Government. The trainer should put in complete effort to teach the trainees, because the outcome of the training depends on the way the trainer is, she added.
Dr Kiran Bedi said that BPR&D and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy are the hubs of training for the police officers and these hubs should meet regularly to share the best practices in training. She said that these hubs should also be the source of content/material for e-learning. Bedi said that there should be collaboration of IITs, IIMs and other management institutions which can do collaborative research on training and suggest good training practices.
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.
