"All these schools have been sanctioned to the force in the last six months and are aimed to enhance and sharpen the operational and tactical skills of the CRPF personnel. Better training will ensure better results and less casualty in this large force," a senior official said.

The force, which is now in the process of deploying its much-awaited intelligence wing in anti-Naxal operations, will train its personnel in techniques of snooping at the CRPF academy near in Kadarpur.
