Wednesday, 22 MAY 2024 | PNS | DEHRADUN

Uttarakhand has completed its preparations for the implementation of the three new criminal laws-Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS), Bharatiya Nagrik Suraksha Sanhita (BNSS) and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam (BSA) 2023 from July 1. Chief secretary Radha Raturi said this in a video conference with all the States on Tuesday under the chairmanship of Home secretary. She informed that after the new laws were passed, the State administration coordinated with the Central Detective Training Institute (CDTI) and Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) and sent 50 police officers from the police training college and authorised training centre of the State to Ghaziabad and Jaipur for the master trainer course. The administration has also prepared an Uttarakhand police handbook based on which all the courses of new criminal laws are being conducted across the State. She said that the book will help readers to understand major laws simply and the copies are being distributed to all police officers and employees. The administration has distributed a total of 25,000 handbooks. Besides this, the Police department is also preparing three modules for online training. Employees who do not have direct involvement in police investigations will be trained in online mode. She also stated that the administration has decentralised training at the district level considering the short duration of time for the implementation of the new criminal laws. She said that all IPS officers and senior/superintendents of police have also received a two-day training on March 19 from the assistant professor of National Law University, New Delhi, which is based on the syllabus provided by BPRD. About 75 per cent police personnel have received offline mode training and the remaining will be trained soon.  Raturi said that all the training will be completed by June 20 and the training for updates related to CCTNS software will also be completed by May 31.
