Ggn Student Police Cadets programme to be launched on Oct 31
Shatrujeet Singh Kapoor, ADGP, CID, Haryana, will officially launch the Student Police Cadets (SPC) programme initiated by the Gurgaon Police on October 31 at Hotel Galaxy. Students will be enrolled in activities that will inculcate respect for law and community skills, and instill social values and will also include physical fitness training.
The Haryana government passed this project to the Gurgaon Police. For this project, a team was formed involving three government schools and three private schools. The government senior secondary schools of Sectors 4, 7, 43 and Gawlpahari will be joining the Student Police Cadets’ team.
Till now 264 students have enrolled themselves in the project. The project was first initiated in Kerala in 2010 in which over 11,000 students, both boys and girls, were trained. Considering the success of the project in Kerala, the Gurgaon Police decided to start the pilot project in the Millennium City.
The Student Police Cadet project is a school-based youth development initiative that trains high school students to evolve as future leaders of a democratic society by inculcating within them respect for the law, discipline, civic sense, empathy for vulnerable sections of society and resistance to social evils.
CPOs and ACPOs will be trained for efficiently implementing the training. A dedicated police team has been appointed to provide the drill training, instructions and self defence training by the Gurgaon Police. The training for the same will be given at the Gurgaon Police Traffic Tower.
