MHA approves National Institute of Coastal Policing

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has approved a National Institute of Coastal Policing, which will impart basic and advanced marine training to the 7,500 Policemen posted in 77 coastal Police stations in the country for maritime law enforcement as reported on November 12, by Economic Times.

MHA has spent INR 5.23 billion on the first phase of the coastal security scheme but only INR 19 million were spent by the MHA to train the Policemen from the Coast Guard for a short four-week course. According to MHA, the Policemen need training in maritime laws, seamanship, boat work, handling and maintenance navigation, training of weapons as well as survival drills if they are stranded on the sea. The institute will train marine Police from the rank of Constables to Deputy Superintendents of Police, evaluate and train new technology for maritime policing and develop standard operating procedures and best practices for coastal police of all states and union territories.
