Sri Lankan Police and Sri Lanka’s President’s Guards trained in India

Sathyalaya Ramakrishnan - The Sri Lankan uniformed personals including senior police officials ranging from the rank of superintendent of police to Sub-Inspector of Police, who are engaged in the security of the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa have completed their two-month long special training at Haryana Police Academy, Madhuban.

It is learnt that further 100 more such police officials would be trained in the Academy.

As many as 99 police officials of Sri Lanka have already undergone training at this Academy in 2008, an official spokesman of the Academy said on Thursday.

The Bureau of Police Research and Development has, on the directions of External Affairs Ministry, chosen Haryana Police Academy to impart training to police contingents of other countries.

The Haryana Police Academy, Madhuban has already received ISO 9001:2001 certification which is given at an international level.

Speaking on a farewell function organized at the Academy for the officials of Sri Lanka, Haryana Director General of Police (DGP) Mr Ranjiv Dalal said it was a matter of immense pride for the Haryana Police Academy to train these Sri Lankan police officials.

Further he said one could easily realize that the security of the President was quite sensitive in view of terrorist activities in Sri Lanka.

Under Haryana Police Act, 2007, community policing has been made an integral part of police training. ''The Haryana Police has not only adopted modern techniques, but also motivated the police personnel to discharge their duties impartially,'' he added..

"Training to police contingents is already given to other states including Nagaland, Manipur, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Bihar, Chandigarh and also to Andaman and Nicobar. Among units of paramilitary forces which were trained at the Academy were Central Industrial Security Force and Central Research Bureau units", Said the Police Academy Director V N Ra.
