  Tamil language training for police service

     In a bid to implement the State Language Policy, the State Language
Commission is to commence Tamil language training programmes for police
service in the coming weeks. The State Language Commission yesterday
announced that in a bid to create awareness on implanting the State Language
Policy, the training programmes will be held targeting selected government
official attached to the police service.

To initiate this, selected officers from the three police divisions of
Kurunegala, Gampaha and Mirihana (Colombo South) will be summoned for
special training sessions. According to Chairman State Language Commission
Raja Kollure the chief motive of these training programmes is to enable the
police officers in speech, reading and writing of the Tamil language as well
as to enhance their fluency in the written language.

As a result a special programme will be commenced on September 11 at the
In-service Training Centre of the Kurunegala Police Division targeting a
group of selected police officers. Another programme will take place at
Mirihana Police In-service Training Centre on September 16 for a selected
group. Meanwhile a batch of policemen who successfully completed their
training is to pass out in Gampaha Police Division today. All these language
training courses have been organized by the State Language Commission. (KK)
