New Delhi: The Central Government has decided to establish world-class National Police University in a bid to provide intense training, research and development and policy-making.
The institution shall work in the domains of education and research like policing, law enforcement and related areas of internal security and public safety. The government is yet to decide the location for the university.
“In the first instance, the university would offer courses in Police Sciences, Cyber Forensics, Risk Management and Criminology,” according to the Ministry of Home Affairs.
The Government of India will be funding for the University.
“For Modernisation of Police, Central Government allocates funds as support incentive to State Governments for implementation of Police reforms, under the scheme of ‘Assistance to States for Modernisation of Police’”, the MHA said.
