Delhi Police to hold classes on updated laws, technology

New Delhi, Jan 3 (IANS) Delhi Police officials will attend a class on updated laws, technologies and rules in the judiciary and policing systems, city police chief B.S. Bassi said here Friday.

“Our men are very dedicated to work but sometimes I find they lack knowledge about the technologies and rules adopted by the judiciary and police,” Bassi told IANS.
Bassi said every officer will undergo training for seven days. The classes will be conducted by guest faculty, including retired police officers and those in service.
“Each and every officer from seniors to juniors will attend the classes, which will start in March-April,” he said.
Delhi Police have a strength of 80,000 policemen.
“Any changes in law, technology, court decisions will be informed in the classes. The guest faculty would also tell them how to deal with cases related to those laws,” Bassi said.
Another officer said newly-made laws like Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and its sections and provisions were still not fully understood by the policemen.
