KARACHI: The United States Consulate’s senior representative, John Knight, and Inspector General Mushtaq Shah inaugurated the Curriculum Development Team at the Central Police Office (CPO) on Friday.

It was announced that the US government will provide Rs56 million to the Sindh police for developing the training modules as part of an ongoing effort on its part to collaborate with the Sindh police.

The police will receive assistance in three phases throughout the province. An eight-member curriculum team has been developed that will train 30 master instructors, which would include 20 male and 10 female police officers. The master instructors will then train police officers as part of a regular training curriculum in Sindh.

The training modules will focus on a few major areas, including crime prevention, counter-terrorism, human rights, criminal investigations, policing, and search and arrest.

“This is a great endeavour on part of the police in focusing on standardising their practices to incorporate human rights in their community policing, with the rule of law as their foundation,” said Knight at the CPO. He added that their police assistance programmes have aided police forces all over the country.
