Training Policies 

Balochistan Police Training Policy - 2013 

The purpose of Police Training is to develop the necessary attitudes, skills and knowledge, which will enable police officers of all ranks to undertake their roles and responsibilities as expected under police rules and international standards of law enforcement. Balochistan Police Training Policy-2013 prepared in collaboration with the Gender Responsive Policing Project jointly implemented by the National Police Bureau of Pakistan and the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Foreign Office. 

Examination Policy - 2012

It was observed that there was no uniform examination policy being followed in all Police Training Institutions except a brief mention of examination in the Police College Manual, 2011. In this regard, different instructions/policies had been issued from time to time in bits and pieces. The conduct of examination is a very important aspect in any Police Training Institution and there was a dire need to formulate a comprehensive policy about the conduct of examinations and permission to re-appear for failures in basic as well as promotional courses. In view of the narrated factors, an examination policy is still under process due to certain circumstances
