OUR HISTORY

The Madhya Pradesh Police Academy came up as an Integrated Police Training Center in 2013, filling up a long standing demand of the Police Training Center at Bhopal, the state capital of MP where most of the police offices are centralized. The Police Training for Deputy Superintendent of Police and Sub Inspectors in Madhya Pradesh was provided at Jawaharlal Lal Nehru Police Academy (JNPA) at Sagar. This institute at Sagar in Bundelkhand area is the forerunner of MPPA as the main police academy of the state of MP, after the Madhya Pradesh state was established in 1956. The Sagar academy however exists since 1908 when the British established a training center in Sagar to cater to the needs of the civilian police in British ruled central Indian territory and more specifically for the British Province of Central Provinces and Berar. The Police Commission popularly known as the Frazer Commission of 1902 had recommended Training Institutions for the Police in India to nurture a more professional police service in India. Through this directive, Training centers at Phillaur in Punjab, Nasik in Maharashtra, Bhagalpur in Bihar, Moradabad in United Provinces and Vellore in Madras Presidency were established. The MP Police academy draws from this legacy of the establishment of training institutions in central India more than a century ago. Apart from JNPA, training facilities in Madhya Pradesh also exist at Rustomji Armed Police Training College (RAPTC) at Indore and at various Police Training Schools (PTS) in

the state, oldest among which is the PTS at Pachmarhi, which dates back to 1948. The need was felt for a state of the art Academy, to fulfill the training aspirations as per the challenges faced by modern day civilian policing, where specializations of different policing disciplines could be nurtured and an integrated approach to training, capacity building, needs based training intervention for better policing and multi stakeholders perspectives in training could be inculcated within a police reforms led agenda of police training where research led capacity building and evidence informed police policy work could also be done following an integrated training mandate. For these reasons, in a phased manner, The Madhya Pradesh Police Academy was established as an Integrated Police Training Centre in a new campus near the State capital Bhopal. It was on the 10th of June 2013, the Madhya Pradesh Police Academy (MPPA) Bhopal finally came into existence. The Police academy is situated 25 kms away from the main Bhopal City & is spread across a campus of around 100 acres. The academy is the state police training institution for the state of M.P.
