New traffic police recruits will get on-the-job training

NEW DELHI: Freshers to the traffic police unit in the city will now undergo an exhaustive week-long training. The first batch of eight inspectors will receive training at Bal Bhawan traffic training park from Monday.

‘‘Till now, there was no induction course for police personnel who were joining the traffic police. They used to learn the skills of traffic management on the job,’’ Maxwell Pereira, joint commissioner of police (traffic), said. Of all things to be taught in the course, themes of courtesy while disciplining vehicle- users will be high on the agenda.

‘‘The personnel will be asked to be polite yet firm while managing traffic,’’ a police officer, who will teach in the training programme, said. The training programme, which will be conducted by the road safety cell of the traffic police, will be held from 10 am to 4 pm.
‘‘Earlier, the personnel first manned traffic on VIP routes where they learned the basic rules of management. Thereafter, they were posted in various units on a rotational basis where they picked up nuances of traffic management,’’ an official said.

‘‘We will start each day’s training with the traffic drill. After the drill the organisational structure of Delhi traffic police, its mission and objectives will be explained to the inductees.

Knowledge about lane section, light signals, road signs and markings will be imparted by members of road safety cell. One of the traffic inspectors on route arrangement will teach how to manage traffic on VIP routes. The recruits will then be apprised about traffic laws, regulations and recent court rulings.
