AIR to broadcast training lessons for the cops on FM, AM

All India Radio will soon transmit ‘’what to do and how to do it’’ lessons for the cops in the new year. The training modules for police personnel posted across police training institutes in the country would be aired on Prasar Bharati’s AM and FM radio channels.

The move is part of a larger Prasar Bharati effort to earn revenues by offering its infrastructure to other agencies on license fee basis, providing turn-key consultancy, installation services and archival material.

Prasar Bharati and Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) under the ministry of home affairs have signed an MoU to facilitate this.

At present the content for the cop’s channel is being developed by the BPR&D — more as a ‘’training capsule’’ to disseminate training material through audio tapes that are played back.

The programmes would be made available to the 167 police training institutes through the AIR network. While language and format of the programmes are left to the BPR&D, they would be of three types —national, state and local.
