Oct 02, Colombo: The parliament of Sri Lanka is scheduled this week to take up for debate the setting up of a National Police Academy.
The government is expected to present the relevant bill to the House on Thursday (06) and the debate is also to be held that day.
The academy is to be managed and administered by a board of management.
The National Police Academy Bill reportedly provides provisions for the setting up of a permanent educational institution to develop the professional knowledge and skills of police officers and other law enforcement officers selected for such training.
The proposed academy will be equipped with necessary expertise from various fields such as law, criminology, investigation, public relations, forensics, information technology and management.
