Close to 200 students were given training by the district police in the recent edition of Spoorty.Lauding their achievement, Superintendent of Police B Krishna Rao suggested the tribal youths to get employed by availing the training platform provided to them as a part of the community policing programme.
The avenue, the SP opined, aids in bringing tribal youths closer to the police and helps them consider viable options for their career.In a competitive scenario, the SP mentioned, many of the tribal lag behind in securing jobs.
