GUWAHATI: The Indian Army has offered its help to train Assam Police Commando Battalion trainees as part of its ongoing efforts to strengthen the nation and provide selfless service. Seven locations in Assam and Meghalaya have already started the forty-week training programme run by the Indian Army as of November 21, 2022.
Since the 1990s, the Assam police and the Indian Army have worked together to bring calm to the area. The state of Assam has experienced a significant amount of normalcy restoration thanks in great part to these combined operations.
The Assam administration has advanced its efforts to bolster the state security apparatus by forming five new commando battalions to bolster the Assam Police and recruiting almost 2720 personnel, including more than 300 women.
Two phases of training—the Basic phase and the Advanced phase—will be carried out over the course of 40 weeks. The main goal of basic military training is to develop the soldiers' physical and mental toughness. In advanced military training, students learn tactical combat techniques as well as other policing techniques for maintaining law and order.
This collaborative effort will increase the state's security architecture capabilities while also strengthening the state and military's ability to work together on joint operations.
The Indian Army will train the recruits for five new Assam Police commando battalions that will be raised soon, the State's Director General of Police (DGP), Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta, previously told the media.
Because the training centers are limited to the number of recruits already enrolled in training, the Army has agreed to accommodate the new commandos at their facilities, Mahanta added. At the police headquarters in Guwahati, he informed the media that the instructors would work with the Army counterparts to train the new commandos.
In order to assure scientific training for the new commandos, who passed a test that was more difficult than the one for the others, Mr. Mahanta claimed that a retired Army Brigadier had been assigned as a special Deputy Inspector General of Police.
