Delhi Police has launched an e-learning portal ‘Nipun’ to impart training and provide up to date information to police officers. The initiative is aimed at imparting in-service online training and information to police personnel through specialised courses available online which have been designed by experts in various fields.
The online courses on this portal have been designed in collaboration with University Grant Commission (UGC), FICCI, NHRC, NCPCR and Janaki Devi Memorial College, Delhi University under project CLAP “The Collaborative Learning and Partnership”. Delhi Legal Service Authority has also consented to be partner in developing specific courses for the Delhi Police.
It will have online courses and resources on law, standing orders, investigation checklists, forms for case files, latest High Court and Supreme Court rulings. It is envisioned that Investigating Officers (IOS) will be able to take benefit of this information during course of their duty or while handling case.
Through this portal Delhi Police officers can now access information by just logging on the portal. They can take course from anywhere at any time. It will make easier for the police officer to upgrade their skills and re-enforce their learning while balancing training time along with their daily routine work.
Delhi Police has inducted India’s first all-woman Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team for anti-terrorist operations. The all-woman SWAT team is the brainchild of Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik. It was formally inducted by Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
The all-woman SWAT team was inducted after rigorous training of around 15 months from specialists all across India and abroad. It comprises 36 women commandos from northeastern states (13 members from Assam, 5 from Arunachal Pradesh, 5 from Sikkim, 5 from Manipur, 4 from Meghalaya, 2 from Nagaland and 1 from Mizoram and Tripura each).
They have undergone training to handle urban situations as well as jungle operations. They are also well-versed in Israeli Krav Maga, an unarmed combat style. Their expertise includes unarmed combat, ambush and counter-ambush and urban operations like building interventions, vehicle intervention and VVIP security.
They are skilled at using weaponry like MP5 submachine guns and Glock-21 pistols. They will be deployed at strategic locations in Central and South Delhi as well as Red Fort and India Gate during Independence Day and Republic day celebrations.
