A team of 30 police officers participated in a training on industrial security at the National Industrial Security Academy (NISA) in Hyderabad, India. The course was organised from September 24 to 28.

NISA, an academy of international repute, was founded in 1990 and has been recognised as a ‘Center of Excellence in Industrial Security’.

NISA is renowned for producing well-trained personnel in the field of Industrial and Critical Infrastructural Security and Management, Aviation Security and Disaster Management and has helped to develop professionals imbibed with the highest standards of physical and mental fitness, in-depth knowledge and skills, the Indian High Commission stated in a release.

The training programme was funded by India, with a sponsorship of over Rs. 5 million.

The 30 officers, ranging from the rank of Chief Inspector of Police, Inspector of Police and Sub-Inspector of Police, participated in the programme. Besides lectures conducted by experts, the trainees also had firsthand exposure to the latest gadgets used in the field.

India provided hospitality as a gesture of strengthening people-to-people contact between India and Sri Lanka.

Several other training programmes such as Crime Scene Management and CCTV Analysis, Expert Testimony on Criminal Trial, Forensic Science, Cyber Forensics, VIP Security, Traffic Management and a seminar on Financial Crime, are organised by India for Sri Lanka’s police force this year.
