Central Reserve Police Force, the largest Paramilitary of the world, has come of age and has matured into a multi-pronged, multi-tasking, versatile Force, fighting with varied adversaries. Adaptability has been a keyword for CRPF, which has come across many intricate and complicated forms of internal security issues threatening the largest democracy. Ever since its birth, in 1939 as Crown Representative Police, to deal with hooligans like criminal and dacoits, it is constantly at task with increased demands.
To enhance and sharpen the operational capabilities of the Force, with an eye on its diverse roles, skill-specific Specialized Schools have been set up across the country. Such one school a National Institute of Jungle Warfare is being established at Belgaum.
Belgaum is already home to MLIRC, ITBP, Indian Air Force.
