HYDERABAD: The graduation parade of 67 RR (2014 batch) is scheduled to be held here on Saturday in which 141 IPS officer trainees and 15 foreign officer trainees from Maldives, Nepal and Royal Bhutan will take part. The graduation parade is the culmination of 46 weeks training of IPS officer trainees at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA).
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval would present trophies to the winners.
Announcing this at a press conference here on Thursday, director of NPA Aruna M Bahuguna said that the training has covered all aspects of policing including law, investigation, forensic science, forensic medicine, maintenance of public peace and order and also field exposure including jungle combat and working of greyhounds etc.
“As assistant superintendents and two-years later, as superintendents heading districts, a young police officer would have to handle a lot of situations. A police officer is part of the society and should be aware of all issues,” Bahuguna said explaining various off-beat training programmes conducted by the academy for the present batch.
Eminent personalities like RBI governor Raghuram Rajan, actor Naseeruddin Shah, journalist Ravish Kumar, author Amish Tripathi were among those who delivered special lectures.
