Indian police learn security procedures Print

Two contingents of Indian policeman comprising nearly 150 men were in Israel recently to train in the latest techniques in dealing with terror.

The policemen, from Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, represented different ranks and echelons of the Indian police force, and were eager to learn and share new technology and homeland security procedures with their Israeli counterparts.

“As Israel has unfortunately been a victim of terrorism, it has learnt how to confront this terrible menace and how to respond to and deal with terrorist attacks,” Israel’s ambassador to India Daniel Carmon told Deccan Herald. “And Israel is ready to share with India what it learnt.” India is also the target of terrorists, usually from neighbouring Pakistan.

The Indian policemen were hosted at the new, state-of-theart police academy in Bet Shemesh, near Jerusalem.
