KP: Online Police training classes begin in response to COVID-19 restrictions
The online police training classes are being conducted to continue to train the policemen while avoiding the further spread of the virus.
For the first time in Pakistan Police history, online police training classes were arranged in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK). Like other institutes in the country, Pakistan Police have also adopted the latest measures to ensure that the work is not disrupted amid Covid-19.
On Saturday, KPK Police posted a tweet on the matter that stated:
For the first time in the history of Pakistan Police, online classes were inaugurated by the IGP. Pakhtunkhwa Police took the initiative of training the personnel during Coronavirus.

In the tweet, the KPK Police also said:
The Special and Levies personnel will be trained in August; however, Special Branch training has been started.
The online police training classes are being conducted to continue to train the policemen while avoiding the further spread of the virus. The new system will further ensure that the police officials are kept up to date with activities to play a vital role in enforcing the law. Technology has enabled law enforcement agencies to fulfill the operation.
Initiatives like the online police training are commendable, considering the disruption the pandemic has caused in the province. There are 29,775 confirmed Coronavirus patients in KPK, out of which 20,271 patients have recovered successfully. One hundred and seven deaths have been reported in the province.
Even though the number of new cases of the virus is falling in the region, KPK has expanded its Coronavirus treatment capacity. The province is fully prepared to cater to any future surges. In light of this, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister, Mahmood Khan, inaugurated a 58-bed facility in Nishterabad, Peshawar, dedicated to Covid-19 patients.
