NALGONDA: With juvenile delinquency and substance abuse on the rise among school-going teenagers, the state government has decided to introduce a new initiative, ‘Student Police Cadet’ (SPC) system, to make minors obey the law, practice discipline, show compassion for the weaker sections of the society and know the significance of national integrity.The TS government, whose novel concept of ‘SHE teams’ set up to provide safety and security to women became a model for other states, has now resolved to follow the SPC concept being implemented in Kerala, to make young pupils display commitment towards family, society and environment. 

This new initiative will be introduced in some of the identified government high schools in all the 31 districts of the state from coming October. Later, it will be gradually extended to more schools, including private schools. In the first phase, four schools will be selected in each district and SPC groups will be set up in 8th and 9th classes. A total of 44 students- 22 girls and 22 boys,  will be formed into an SPC group in each class.

The training will be a two-year programme. The main focus of the programme will be on developing physical fitness, inculcating a sense of responsibility among children towards society and instilling social values among them. During the programme, students will have physical fitness training and study classes  on moral values. They will also be taken for field visits, periodically. According to education department officials, lessons on national integrity and government welfare schemes will also be taught during the programme.
