In a groundbreaking initiative aimed at bridging the gap between the community and law enforcement, the Student-Police Experiential Learning Program (SPELP) has been launched at Tilakwadi, Camp, Khadebazar Shahpur, and Malamaruti police stations in Belagavi city. This innovative scheme is set to empower the youth and enhance their understanding of policing, cybersecurity, and legal intricacies.

Under SPELP, 10 graduate students from each police station will be carefully selected to participate in a comprehensive month-long program. The curriculum has been designed to provide participants with hands-on experience in various aspects of policing, including Basic Policing, Online Fraud, Ransomware, Online Threats, IPC (Indian Penal Code), CrPC (Code of Criminal Procedure), and Women and Child Law.

The launch of SPELP marks a significant step towards fostering a stronger relationship between the police force and the younger generation. The program aims to demystify the workings of law enforcement, enabling students to gain a deeper insight into the challenges faced by police officers daily.


Key Components of SPELP by Belagavi Police:

Basic Policing: Students will be introduced to the fundamental principles of policing, understanding crime prevention, and maintaining law and order.

Cybersecurity Awareness: With the increasing prevalence of cybercrimes, the program will cover topics like Online Fraud, Ransomware, and Online Threats to equip students with knowledge on combating digital threats.

Legal Education: An in-depth study of the Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the legal framework within which the police operate.

Women and Child Law: Sensitizing participants to the specific laws and challenges related to women and children will be an integral part of the program, contributing to a more inclusive and informed approach.

Commissioner of Police, expressed optimism about the positive impact of SPELP, stating, “This program not only serves to educate our future leaders but also strengthens the bond between the police and the community. It is an investment in creating a more informed and responsible citizenry.”

The selected students will not only undergo theoretical training but will also have the opportunity to engage in practical scenarios, shadowing experienced police officers and participating in community outreach programs. This immersive approach aims to provide a holistic learning experience and instill a sense of civic responsibility among the participants.
