In late eighties, the Police Commission
(1977) recommended for the establishment
of a Staff College for high-level in-service
professional training of senior police
officers. After a decade, another Police
Commission Report of 1988-89 impressed
upon the idea and underscored the importance
of a liberal education for senior Police
officers. In pursuance of those reports
a formal proposal was sent to the government
in 1994 and approval of the government
came on 14 December 1998.
Police Staff College, the apex training
institution for the senior Police officers,
emerged as a statutory organization in
2002 under Police Staff College Act, 2002.
Revised Organogram (with TO& E), Rules
& Regulations have been drafted but
yet to be approved by the competent authority.
At present, a Rector of the rank of Additional
Inspector General of Police heads the
College. Two Directors equivalent to the
rank of Superintendent of Police, three
Additional Superintendents, one senior
assistant Superintendent and one Assistant

Home Minister guides the College management.
