Hyderabad, Feb 12 (PTI) Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel NationalPolice Academy (SVP-NPA) here is preparing 3D(three-dimensional) models of all important buildings in thecountry, for the purpose of anti-terrorism operations.
Using these 3D models, it is also giving specialisedtraining to officers and commandos for a counter-attack, in ascenario where any of these buildings come under siege.
"The idea is that if you know about the interiors of anylocation (building) which is under threat, the officers can begiven a 3D briefing before launching the counter-attack. Wehave learned from the 26\11 Taj Hotel attack and tried to putin a system of briefing officers and commandos in a 3D formatbefore getting into action," SVP-NPA Director Rajiv Mathursaid.
The SVP-NPA would build a digital library with the 3Dimages as well as photographs and maps of importantinstallations, including its own campus at Shivrampally here,the Director told journalists.
"We are trying to create a 3D atmosphere and put theofficers through simulation tests as part of the tacticaltraining. While we have acquired some latest weapons, we arealso acquiring a series of other weapons for providingcomprehensive training under the ''Special Tactics Wing''. Sofar, training in special weapons has been imparted to 709police officers besides 200 personnel from BSF and CRPF,"Mathur said.
