Senior officers have also visited juvenile homes to talk to inmates to know about their interests about the skills they would like to learn.
In partnership with the National Skill Development Corporation, youngsters will be imparted training in various areas like cookery, hospitality, computers, among others, said a senior police officer.
On the completion of the training programme, they might also get employed. The programme will start off with 200 youngsters from each of the 13 police districts being imparted vocational skills training and will be expanded to more persons.
In an interview to PTI, Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik had mentioned about the plans to start this scheme.
"Our endevaour will be to wean away youngsters from crime. It may not show results immediately but a city like Delhi needs that kind of a long-term treatment of a problem," Mr Patnaik had said.
