Detective Training School

Background:
Investigation of crime and its prevention has been a crucial part of police organization since its very establishment. As stated in the Police Act, 2012, it is the prime responsibility of police to successfully investigate crime to establish peace and security. In today’s rapidly modernizing  context, the scope and area of crime has broadened itself far beyond imagination. Given the emergence of sophisticated scientific aids and cutting-edge technologies, proliferation  of crime can no longer be curbed by primitive approach of investigation .Therefore, to keep in pace with these vivid changes in crime patterns Nepal Police has been providing various trainings related to crime investigation through Detective Training School (DTS), which was established in accordance to the recommendation made by the Commission on Police Reformation and Recommendation 2050 B.S.(1993 A.D.)  Later, the erstwhile His Majesty’s Government (HMG) decided to establish the DTS under the control and supervision of National Police Academy by converting the Detective Training Wing into the DTS on 28 Poush 2052 (January 1995). The school is now functioning  under the direct control of Senior Superintendent of Police
