The Indian Army’s Western Command has offered to train Punjab police personnel at its camps in Jalandhar, Pathankot, Zirakpur and Nahan, a Punjab police spokesman said on Friday.

A two-week training programme was also being considered for nearly 20 young police officers for strengthening the police Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team as a follow-up of a recent meeting between Punjab’s additional general of police (ADGP-HRD) M K Tiwari and major general M P Singh, the in-charge (training) at the Western Command.

In addition, the Army has also agreed in enhancing the expertise of the Punjab police in handling improvised explosive devices, and anti-sabotage and bomb disposal techniques. The above courses were also expected to increase the cooperation and coordination between the two organisations, the spokesman said.
