Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) has introduced a training tool called the Virtual Police Station (VPS) which was developed with the help of the Rajasthan Police Academy. The tool is particularly useful for constabulary training and refreshers for ASI as well as a public education tool.The VPS is thoroughly innovative and provides an alternative to the usual chalk and talk mode of training that is imparted to the recruits.

The video is in ten different languages provides a 360 degree view of a police station. The rooms that can be explored in this program include the Reception, Station Writer’s Room, Lock Up, Case Property Room, SHO Office and more. A user can click on several items in each of these rooms, such as objects (registers, evidence, police equipment, telephones, etc), personnel (duty officer, investigating officer, station writer, station house officer, case property officer, etc), and members of the public (witness, accused, female victim, male victim, etc). Once something is clicked, detailed information is provided using videos, pictures and text boxes, with accurate legal and criminal sections provided for training. Critically, there is a “learn more” button which serves as a resource archive, providing case law, legislation, guidelines and other seminal materials for the particular process they are exploring, so that trainers and cadets have every option to learn as much as possible on vital service related topics.

The tool is available online Virtual Police Station (VPS)[Tool] as well as available offline. The following things however need to be kept in mind while viewing the Virtual Police Station online and they are as follows:
