Police Training School finally compiles syllabus
LAHORE, July 9: Administration of the
Police Training School (PTS) of Chung has compiled a syllabus, which had never
existed before, for intermediate and higher courses for Punjab police's
sub-inspectors (SI) and assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs).
said the syllabus forwarded to the Punjab police authorities for final approval
would be implemented from July 10, 2007.
Earlier, the courses had been
conducted at the Police Training College (PTC) of Sehala, but since traffic
wardens were being trained there, the SIs and the ASIs were sent to Chung. The
PTS administration asked the PTC administration about the syllabus and the PTC
officials responded by saying that since there was none, the trainees were
taught out of books on law. Therefore, PTC started to compile a syllabus
covering public dealing, manners, avoiding being aggressive, community policing
and first aid.
On Saturday, the first batch of SIs and ASIs graduated
where Additional IG of Training Fiaz Mir was the chief guest. The batch
graduated without a set syllabus and completed its course in six months instead
of the set span of three months.
Fiaz Mir gave awards to the students
who did well and appreciated the efforts of PTS Chung principle Major
Mubasharullah, the senior superintendent of Police (SSP) and other instructors. daily times
