Centre's pat for State's Student Police Cadet scheme
The Student Police Cadet (SPC) programme conducted in the State has been appreciated by the Union Government.  Bengaluru’s Additional Commissioner of Police (East) P Harishekaran, who is the nodal officer of the programme, has been invited by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) to discuss the SPC and to implement it across the nation.

“The PMO has sent a letter in this regard. It is a proud moment for the State. The Union government is planning to implement the SPC across the country in all government, aided and Navodaya schools. A presentation will be made before PMO officials and members of the Home Ministry. Later, a discussion will be held on preparing policy matters, budget allocation, allotting co-ordination officers, training centre and other factors,” Harisekharan told Deccan Herald on Wednesday.

The programme will be introduced under the leadership of the Home Ministry in coordination with the education, social welfare, women and child welfare, human resource and other ministries. “The hard work of the entire team has paid off and we will strive to make it a success at the national level,” added Harisekaran.

Harisekaran said he has conducted a survey across the state by interacting with officials of various departments, public, police, school heads, students and their parents.

Source material was collected from experts from various fields such as community policing, education, personality development and information technology. Training manuals developed for the SPC project are designed to enable each student police cadet to develop all the qualities and virtues desired. While engaged in the process, it is anticipated that the inner capabilities of the cadet will be portrayed in a positive manner. Harishekaran left for Delhi on Wednesday.
