CHENNAI:City Police Commissioner TK Rajendran is to participate in the Homeland Security Dialogue, hosted by the US State Department between Nov 16 - 20, at New York. The initiative is part of US-India Counterterrorism and Homeland Security Cooperation.

Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa greeted the CoP ahead of his visit to the US in this regard.

Though the previous edition of this event took place in New Delhi, the CoP did not participate.

 This time, Rajendran would be accompanied by City Police Commissioners of other mega cities including Bengaluru, Mumbai, Kolkatta and Delhi. The first part of the programme would be in New York and the latter part in Washington, D.C.

Rajendran, who is likely to leave for New York early on Saturday, will be back after two weeks.

The US-India Homeland Security Dialogue is aimed at enhancing internal security cooperation, capacity building in cybersecurity and critical infrastructure protection, countering illicit finance, global supply chain security, megacity policing, and science and technology.

Sharing lessons learnt and best practices in SWAT team training and responding to mass casualty exercises, improving nations’ capabilities to respond to terrorist incidents and disasters are among those on the cards.
