Stakeholder Departments

POLICE

In all communities, the police organization is the visible and apparent face of Authority. Police have the responsibility of executing Law, and ensuring order. Police has a presence in all remote corners, and is a network with many nodes that connects all communities. Police personnel undergo strict training regimens, practice organizational discipline, and follow clear chains of authority. In a democracy, police are duty-bound to function as the protectors of community, and facilitate equitable enjoyment of fundamental rights. Students invariably have respect and fascination for uniformed authorities, especially police. And, what is more, the resources and manpower at the command of the police department make them the ideal Government agency to lead the SPC program. Forging a mutually productive relationship between today's youth and police organizations is a worthwhile investment in our country's future.

EDUCATION

Education must not be limited to the development of knowledge, academic or otherwise. It must make the student a well-rounded person able to live harmoniously in society with others. One of the goals of education in a democracy must be to form productive citizens who can function well in such a democratic society. To be truly effective citizens in a liberal democracy, students need to be equipped with the knowledge, ability and dispositions to engage in a pluralistic society that internalizes global values. Citizenship education supports students to acquire knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to make decisions and choices that will be just and fair not only for their nation but the entire human community. The training program of the Student Police Cadet project is designed to provide high school students with the internal framework, motivation and guidance to evolve as well-developed citizens. Hence, the Department of Education has a major role to play in the success of the SPC project.

TRANSPORT

The ever-expanding network of road connectivity, the increasing number of vehicles on our roads, and consequent rise in the occurrence of road accidents makes road safety a major issue in communities everywhere. Young users of the road must be trained at an early age to be safe and sensible users, as pedestrians, passengers and future drivers. Therefore, the Transport Department is a significant stakeholder and beneficiary in the SPC project implementation.

FOREST AND ENVIRONMENT

For meaningful environmental education, students must gain direct exposure to issues of ecological importance affecting our communities. Since it is the stated mission of the forest department to work for such objectives, the resources and manpower of the Forest department may be utilized to strengthen the effectiveness of the SPC training program. Nature camps, workshops on environmental protection, classes on bio-diversity, etc. are all matters that can best be handled by officials of the Forest department.

PROHIBITION AND EXCISE

The worrisome increase in use and abuse of intoxicants among community members, especially youth, is a matter that needs to be effectively countered. Laws and regulations concerning such substances are an administrative responsibility of the Department of Excise. Professional expertise and domain knowledge of Excise Department personnel are an effective resource for the dissemination of cautionary messages for community members. Students can be educated early in life about the health risks and social dangers of alcoholism, narcotic use etc. and the Excise Department has the resources and expertise for effective educational empowerment of students on these issues.

HEALTH

Health and hygeine are most important aspects of life for physical and mental development and self confidence. It is important for students to be aware about its various aspects.

SPORTS

Sports are important for physical and mental development of students even as it helps in creating fellow feeling among them.

LAW

Respect for law has to be inculcated within students at this early stage so that they become responsible citizens in their later life.

ENERGY

Students need to be made aware about finite sources of energy, that its excessive use may lead to polution creating global challenges like climate change etc.

INFORMATION

The scheme needs to be propagated to wider public so as to make them aware about importance of all round development of children in creating safe and healthy society.

DISASTER MANAGEMENT

Frequency of both natural and man made disasters have increased. Children need to be taught about various aspects of disaster like its causes, preparedness, mitigation etc.

LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT

Since one goal of the SPC program is to train students to be law-abiding and responsible citizens of a democracy, local self-government bodies certainly have a long term interest in developing SPCs. The process of administering and executing Law is a process that involves the respective Local Self-Government body. Inculcating civic sense, facilitating participation in community development, and ensuring equitable access to government services for all community members; these objectives of the SPC training program are particularly relevant to local administrations. Student Police Cadets can be given exposure to the functioning of government at the local level by making the Local Self-Government Department a stakeholder in the SPC training program.

OTHER AGENCIES & ORGANISATIONS

Since the SPC project seeks to develop a generation capable of responding appropriately to community issues, they must be given supervised exposure to problems and situations, which require multiple skills for their smooth resolution. Environmental protection, human rights issues, cyber security matters, community health, and several other areas requiring attention of community leaders may be introduced to SPCs during their training program by agencies working in the respective areas. Agencies that may be considered for association with the project include the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) etc. However, such association must obtain clearance from the State Level Advisory Committee, and exact details of the working arrangement must be spelled out clearly prior to launch of any related activities.
