The Raksha Shakti University (RSU) set up amid much hype a year ago has now launched a post-graduate diploma course in police sciences,besides an undergraduate diploma in the same course,with one year and nine month’s durations,respectively.

The admission process has already begun and the last date for receiving application forms is June 24.

But there is hardly anything in the syllabi of the two courses beyond what is already being taught to the police recruits at the police training schools in the state.

Among the topics being covered in the two courses include role of security agencies,Indian Penal Code,Criminal Procedure Code,Indian Evidence Act,VIP security,vital installations,forensic sciences,police working and minor acts like dowry and motor vehicles Acts,exactly the same things which are taught to the recruits in state’s police training schools.

The practicals cover wireless communication,metal detector,crime investigation kit and letter mail-bomb detectors etc. It is also running a two-month in-service computer course on police application(CCPA).

When asked,Registrar Dhiraj K Parikh said the RSU,inaugurated in July 2010,was at an incipient stage and would take time to develop various courses with proper syllabi.

However,he said the university planned to launch various courses related to internal security,apart from conducting research on various issues like problems being faced by policemen in consultation with Indian Institute of Management and CEPT University. He said it was also being planned to launch a training course in the art of deciphering the photographs taken by CCTV cameras installed at various vital installations,besides a full-fledged course in detection and prevention of cyber crime.

To ensure that RSU gets adequate number of students,the state government has announced to give preference to its passouts in recruitment for police and other security agencies of the state. The Gujarat Industrial and Security Force (GISF),raised on the lines of the CISF,has also reserved 50 per cent of its vacancies for those passing out from RSU.

The RSU does not have a permanent faculty and depends mostly on visiting faculties that include senior in-service and retired police officers,retired judges and senior advocates.

The university is currently run from the premises of the old Sardar Patel Institute of Public Administration (SPIPA) building in Meghaninagar. It has been allotted 232 acres of land near Lawad village on Gandhinagar-Himmatnagar Highway.
