Post Gurdaspur and Pathankot terror strikes that occurred in quick succession from across the border, the Punjab Police are not leaving anything to chance.

It has decided to increased its preparedness to an all new high. The Army will now train the Punjab Police to tackle any Pathankot-type incident in future. A two weeks training programme is being considered for nearly 20 young police officers for strengthening the SWAT team.  Similarly some officials of the Punjab Police will undertake the “Ghatak” anti-terrorist operations training course in the near future.

As a follow-up of the meeting between additional director general of police M K Tiwari and Major General M P Singh, in-charge (Training), Western Command, the Army has  proposed to offer its services to train the Punjab Police personnel at its different facilities in Jalandhar, Pathankot, Zirakpur and Nahan. In addition, the Army has also agreed to enhance the expertise of the Punjab Police in handling IEDs, anti-sabotage and bomb disposal techniques.
