SVPNPA is tasked with training police officials after they are recruited by the UPSC through all India civil services exam and it also conducts compulsory in-service courses.

She said the institution has started a new policy of sending police officials, depending on their seniority, to Singapore, Australia and the US to study their best practises.     

"The idea is to see the best practices in those countries and how we can apply (in India). We have learnt a great deal from these countries. Now, we are sending another batch to London," Bahuguna said, who took over as director earlier this year.

Some officers who were sent abroad have already started implementing things back home like how to cordon off crime scene, alternative parking and community policing, she said.

She also exhorted the young delegates to come out of their "comfort zone", have an open mind and take risks to realise their dream as she narrated her own success story.     

Bahuguna is the first woman IPS officer of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh and first woman director of SVPNPA.
