TN Police Academy conducts one-day workshop on communication for Police officers

Tamilnadu Police Academy
Tamilnadu Police Academy, Chennai was set up by the Government of Tamilnadu to provide highest standard of training to senior police officers.  The Academy built over 130 acres of land, has excellent infrastructural facilities to offer the best training to even the top level Police Officers.
On 7th June 2011, the Academy organised an one-day workshop for the officers at Sub Inspector and Inspector level working at the field level.  The focus of the workshop was to provide or enhance their communication skills, so that they could be more effective in discharging their duties and handling the general public. Around 25 participants across Tamilnadu participated.
K. Srinivasan, Prime Point Foundation was requested to handle two sessions (a) Listening skills and (b) Assertive Communication.  
The sessions included games and role-plays to effectively communicate the techniques of communication and listening habits.  Mr John Arokiaswamy, Chief Operating Officer, Good Relations India Ltd and a communication expert also joined with K. Srinivasan and provided expert views during games and role plays.  
Mr S. Dorairaj, Superintendent of Police and Mr Panneerselvam, Addl Supdt. of Police of TN Police Academy joined at the end of the session and delivered valedictory address.
Police Officers at the field level are connecting the common man with the administration.  At the same time, they have the greatest responsibility of maintaining law and order.  More often, due to pressure of work and pressure from various quarters, their health is affected.  Developing good communication skill will help them to handle their profession more efficiently  and to avoid health problems.  
I appreciate TN Police Academy for taking such pro-active initiative to provide communication skills to their field level officers.  My suggestion is to extend such workshops even to senior level officers from Superintendent of Police, so that they could also get the benefit of enhancing their communication skills. Good communication skills will reduce their mental pressure.
