Politics & government
Policing in a pluralistic and democratic society like India which is trying to emerge from the shadows of a feudal past into a modern and secular nation, is fraught with challenges. It requires a multi-pronged approach to balance law and order functions with social justice and human rights concerns. The need of the hour is to create a police force which can respond to the needs of a developing society. In this book all the problems pertaining to police and police personnel administration have been analysed as police personnel are the key to good governance. Governments must address seriously to provide solutions to the problems of governance and of recruitment, training, promotion, conduct and discipline, transfers, etc. A large number of problems which challenge the police force fall into the following areas: (a) communal, (b) linguistic, (c) extremists, (d) terrorism, (e) violence, caste clashes, (f) reservation policy, (g) student indiscipline, (h) employees agitations, (i) farmers struggle, (j) land grabbing mafia, (k) fake currency, and (l) hostile politics. All these problems can be tackled only through a professional and committed police.
