INTRODUCTION

   The Police Training School, Pondicherry was inaugurated by His Excellency K.M. Chandy then Lieutenant Governor of Pondicherry on 11th July 1983 at Shanmugapuram Police Complex, Gorimedu, Pondicherry. The school imparts basic training to the cadet  Sub-Inspectors and Recruit Police Constables. The recruitment Board is headed by Inspector General of Police/Senior Superintendent of Police, Pondicherry. Normally recruitment is made once in a year or any time depending on the number of vacancy arises from time to time. Since inauguration, this institution had passed out one batch of directly recruited Sub-Inspectors and 17 batches of directly recruited Police Constables. The total training period for Sub-Inspectors is one year and it is nine months for Police Constables. Since the inauguration of the Police Training School, 9 Sub-Inspectors and 1575 Police Constables were given Basic Training in the institution.

   The object of imparting basic training is to prepare a recruit professionally to discharge duties as an efficient Police man and also to inculcate in him the habit of keeping sound physique, mental health, discipline, self-reliance, observation, punctuality, awareness of Police-Public relationship, courtesy and straight forwardness. In other words it is to equip him mentally, physically and temperamentally for undertaking the arduous duties and responsibilities of a Policeman.

   In view of the modernization of Police Force, the suggestions for the re-organization of the training programmes to equip the Police Personnel with the knowledge, skill and attitude required to understand and meet the demands of their new role in the country are essential for continued process of training and hence the training institution is to be equipped with eminent instructors to cope up with the work of mouldings Police Personnel in new shape and making this institution as a full fledged one. The above suggestions have also been emphasized in the Pondicherry Police Commission Recommendation at Page No.45, para-5, 11 under the head Training.

   Basically training is an exercise of a reciprocal process of teaching and learning which aims at converting a Human-being into an Human resource in any organization especially Police Department and converting man into manpower by adding the required POWER and MAN for the purpose of accomplishment of the assigned tasks. Training is gradual process of change and has three phases namely:

1) The Unfreezing Phase
2) The Remoulding Phase and
3) The Refreezing Phase.

 

    In the Police Department, Unfreezing is necessary because individuals after recruitment come to training centres with different habits, values, practices and pattern of behaviour. To affect them through training, their normal habits, styles, values and practices have to be questioned, disturbed and unfrozen. Once new pattern of behaviour is learnt or internalized, there is a need for refreezing of the new acquired styles of performance.

 

   The Police Training School is functioning under the overall supervision of SSP(C&I). The Superintendent of Police (Training), who is the Principal of Police Training School, exercises all administrative control over the staff and smooth running of the school. Since the sanctioned strength is not sufficient for the full engagement of Indoor as well as Outdoor classes, additional strength was drawn from other units on Doing-duty basis.
