Police Training School (PTS) was established in the year 1962 in Valpoi in North Goa to impart physical training to police personnel and also train the recruits in Indian laws and procedures. The PTS has come a long way since then and now also trains excise and forest personnel as well as jail guards. It is headed by a police officer of the rank of SP. The school as of now trains constabulary while the higher ranked officials are sent to other states, so that they can get specialized training.
