Training Institute, Medinipur

In order to improve the lives of prisoners we have to improve ourselves. And only professional traning can prepare the staff for ensuring their safe custody with due regard to the rights of prisoners. With this belief, we have started Training Institute for those who work at grassroots level in the correctional homes. Running in full swing since October 27, 2005, the Training Institute, as it is simply called, is situated in a 6-acre pollution free campus in the district of Paschim Medinipur. What we want to achieve by having a Training Institute of our own is to make the guarding staff professionally competent and sensitize them to the needs of inmates in every possible way. It is also our endeavor to bring about positive changes in the attitude and behavior of the head warders and warders which will ultimately impact the lives of the inmates in our custody.
