In pursuit to educate, skill and upskill the aspirants for private security industry as well as the private security personnel, and to upscale their technical knowledge, Central Association of Private Security Industry (CAPSI) has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sardar Patel University of Police, Security and Criminal Justice (SPUP), Jodhpur (Rajasthan) to establish a collaborative relation between the two institutions towards academics and research. The MoU was signed by NRK Reddy, IPS, (DGP – Prison, Jaipur) and Vice Chancellor of SPUP, and Kunwar Vikram Singh, Chairman, CAPSI at the headquarters of CAPSI New Delhi. Sardar Patel University of Police, Security and Criminal Justice (SPUP) is a statutory body which was established under an Act passed by the State Legislature, Government of Rajasthan in 2012. Mr. Reddy appreciated CAPSI for their efforts to bring quality security knowledge to security personnel as well as the community at large.
With this association, they will cooperate and work together to frame the syllabus, and conduct degree, diploma and certificate courses in security management as per the requirements of the industry. They have also decided to put their joint efforts in arranging for easy internship and placements for the successful students. These advance courses will help security personnel to get job overseas.
In their first step in this endeavour, SPUP and CAPSI have framed the syllabus for BA in Security Management, and launched the course which will start from July this year. This course will be a launch pad for aspiring students who are willing to work in supervisory and managerial positions in the private security industry.
“There is a need for specialized courses on security management. Our association in collaboration with SPUP will help in getting good quality of managers and supervisors for private security industry. There is a growing demand for private security personnel from all over the globe. Our trained manpower with proper degrees and certificates will increase their employability abroad, particularly in Europe and Gulf nations where demand is sky high,” said Kunwar Vikram Singh.
“Our collaboration with CAPSI will help in getting more and more trained personnel on the ground. Going ahead we will introduce new courses and training modules for guards as well as supervisors,” said Mr. Reddy.
