Ahmedabad: Good infrastructure facilities coupled with modern training modules at the Gujarat Police Academy in Karai in Gandhinagar has impressed Goa Police, which will send its newly-recruited 104 Sub Inspectors (SIs) for training here, a senior police official said.

"Goa police is impressed with the infrastructure at the Karai Academy here. Also, the training and operations, which prepare an officer to deal with various circumstances, has impressed Goa police," Gujarat Police Academy joint director Atul Karwal said.

"104 candidates, who have been recruited to the rank of Sub-Inspector recently, will receive their training at the Gujarat Police Academy at Karai in Gandhinagar," Karwal said.

He said this is not the first time such an inter-state police training programme is taking place.

A few years ago, candidates who were recruited as constables by Jharkhand Police were offered training here, he said.

"Goa does not have a training academy which can train such a large number of recruits. They approached Gujarat police some months ago for resource sharing, to which Gujarat police obliged," another senior police official said.

Karwal said Goa Police would be offered similar training like their counterparts from Gujarat and the experience sharing would be an added benefit.

Gujarat Director General of Police (in-charge) Pramod Kumar said the police recruits from Goa, a tourism-driven state, will be given basic induction training, which includes filing of an First Information Report (FIR), crime detection, evidence collection, apart from commando training, management, law and forensics.

Recently, Gujarat police recruited 509 SIs as intelligence officers, of which 109 were women, and all of them are being trained at Karai.
