New Delhi: In a move towards bolstering security and enhancing coordinated operational effectiveness in the region, the Indian Army, in collaboration with the Jammu & Kashmir Police, has initiated a joint training program at the White Knight Corps Battle School in Bhalra, Doda. The programme started on March 19, but was announced on Friday.

There has been a longstanding partnership between the Indian Army and the Jammu & Kashmir Police in combating terrorism for over three decades. Together, they have conducted numerous successful joint operations over the years, including the strategic containment in Sopore and the counterterrorism strikes in Pulwama.

With a focus on operational tactics, intelligence sharing, and counterterrorism strategies, the training program draws upon the Army’s extensive experience and expertise in these fields.

The current batch of trainees comprises 62 deputy superintendents of police and over 1,000 police sub-inspectors, with a notable representation of women in both ranks. This reflects the commitment of both forces to gender inclusivity and empowerment in the security apparatus of Jammu & Kashmir.

The joint training program not only strengthens the coordination between the two forces but also underscores their shared commitment to the security and well-being of the region’s residents. By pooling their resources, expertise, and operational capabilities, the two forces aim to pave the way for a future where peace and safety are maintained through their aligned efforts.
