National Police Academy (NPA) formerly known as Central Police Training Centre (CPTC) established on the onset with the police regulation of 1993. Central Police Training Centre (CPTC) was laid its foundation on 1956 and has its distinction as only an institute to train police force.
In its inception CPTC had remained engaged in training only the constable level within limited resources and training facilities. Now, changing trend of policing as per the changed political context has demanded well versed and qualified police officers to meet the public expectations. As all of us agree that Democratic Policing pattern is the tested and the best policing module, which demands equally competent, honorable and accountable police officers for its delivery. NPA's prime responsibility apparently lies in developing professional competency of the senior police officers through conducting foundation as well as advance training courses.
