Aimed at supporting its force during times of need, the Gujarat Police will now set up physiotherapy units across Police Training Centers and Academies in the state. The aim is to provide proper in-house treatment to policemen, usually injured while on call of duty.
Briefing further, DGP (Gujarat and Training) Vikas Sahay shared that state-of-the-art facilities are in the pipeline to help the injured recuperate under proper supervision. Modern equipment worth Rs 8 lakh has been purchased for every physiotherapy centre to be set up at the police training centres.
“The move is to assist cops in a quick and guided recovery. We have opened physiotherapy centers at Karai Police Training Academy in Gandhinagar, Police Training Centre at Khalal in Kheda, State Reserve Police Force (SRPF) Training School at Sorath in Junagadh and PTS in Vadodara. We have also approved the appointment of both male and female trained physiotherapists so that the rehabilitation process does not get any further delayed,” he added.
The scheme has already taken off off in Gandhinagar and is shortly expected to cover all districts. Throwing more light on the same, PA Sanjay Kanojiya, Karai Police Training Academy, informed that not only policemen “but their families and also those who live in police lines can avail of the physiotherapy centre.”
