How Delhi Police is Using Technology for Training Personnel
Technology has made its way into almost every industry. With the rise of millennial employees and their affinity to digital media, the training organizations have shifted from traditional method to online learning. Recently, The Commissioner of Delhi Police, Amulya Patnaik, has launched an e-learning portal “NIPUN” and training website.
The Main Aim
Through the e-learning portal, Delhi Police will use technology to impart in-service training to its personnel. The website is launched with the aim of providing online training and information through specialised courses designed by professionals in the field.
Suman Nalwa, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Training), said, “With resources such as law, standing orders, investigation checklists, forms for case files, latest High Court and Supreme Court rulings being made available online through the e-learning portal, it is envisioned that the investigating officers will be able to take the benefit of this information during the course of their duty.”
Millennials nowadays don’t believe in time and place constraints for taking any course. Police personnel are also required to upgrade their skills from time-time. But with regular duties, they are unable to opt for various courses required.
With the launch of e-portal, Delhi Police is offering the flexibility of taking courses anytime and anywhere. It will now be possible for police personnel to upgrade their skills and re-enforce their learning while balancing training time with work time.
Many of the courses have been developed in-house while others have been finalised through collaboration with the University Grants Commission, industry body FICCI, National Human Rights Commission, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and Janaki Devi Memorial College under the project CLAP (The Collaborative Learning and Partnership).
The Delhi Legal Service Authority has also consented to be a partner in developing specific courses for Delhi Police.
