Central Government Funding For Modernisation Of State Police Forces

| | | Share |

Author: GK Pillai
Technology has taken giant strides in the last two decades and if less than 10 per cent of the Police Force underwent refresher courses in their entire career, then the bulk of the police force had become obsolete. This could be seen in the lack of scientific investigation of crimes and traffic accidents and consequent low conviction rates.

Aerial Policing For Securing Smart Cities

| | | Share |

Author: Air Marshal Anil Chopra PVSM, AVSM, VM, VSM (Retd)
A big advantage from aerial policing is the reduced requirement for manpower. On the spot policeman who is often considered a corrupt nuisance can now be deployed for other duties. VVIP route sanitization would not require 1,000 policemen any more. Aviation may come to the rescue of India’s dismal population-to-police ratio of 130 to every 100,000.

Community Policing And Homeland Security Lessons From The USA Experience

| | | Share |

Author: Satyajit Mohanty IPS
The threat of terrorism and extremism posing concomitant threats to the internal security of the nation has never been so challenging since independence as has been the case in past one decade or so. In addition to the equipping and training the State Police and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) to enhance their operational capabilities, there is a need to integrate Community Policing into the organisational philosophy as studies world over have proved that when the community becomes the co-producer of safety and security along with law enforcement agencies, it contributes to national security.

Police Community Relations A Bridge Too Far?

| | | Share |

Author: Dr MZ Khan
Governed by the Police Act of 1861, police organisation smacks of colonial hangover: It was meant primarily to control subject people, rather than to serve the people. May it be noted that Model Police Act, put together in 2006, underlines community participation (Sec 102) and provides for ‘PS Community Liaison Group’, ‘Village Guard’, ‘Village Defence Party’, ‘Citizens’ Policing Committee’ etc. Pity that the ‘model’ is yet to be adopted and implemented anywhere, in any State or Union Territory.

Training For Police Modernisation

| | | Share |

Author: Rohit Choudhary IPS
In the Indian Police departments, the training remains a neglected wing and very often the people sent for training are those who are considered spare, near retirement and many a time they are working in a unit not related to the training theme. And on return from training, the skills acquired by the police officers in the training programmes are seldom put to use as their job responsibility is rarely decided on the basis of training programmes attended.

Police Leadership Management Of Man-made Or Natural Disasters

| | | Share |

Author: V Balachandran
The concept of Incident Command System (ICS) was developed in 1968 during a meeting in Phoenix (Arizona) of California Fire Chiefs for fighting wild forest fires. The ICS became a national model later to fight crime scenes, fires or major incidents. It was used to tackle the New York City crisis during the first World Trade Center bombing (1993). After 9/11 it was adopted by the Department of Homeland Security as ‘National Incident Management System’ (NIMS) for all occasions where public assemblies are expected or for natural calamities, emergency and terrorist incidents.

Integrated Emergency Response

| | | Share |

Author: Dr Rupali Jeswal And Joe Marchese
Failure to have a Unified Command Structure is the most common obstacle to effective emergency management. Not knowing who is incharge or even worse competing commands will create chaos and can cost lives because one team will not know what the other team is doing. It is therefore essential that after the primary stakeholders are identified, the planning team must establish a Unified Command Structure and designate an incident commander.

China, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan proposed an ‘international Code of Conduct for Information Security’ in the UN in September 2011, for non-proliferation of “information weapons”, obligating nation states ‘not to use information and communication technologies, including networks, to carry out hostile activities or acts of aggression, pose threats to international peace and security or proliferate information weapons or related technologies’.

Criminogenic Factors

| | | Share |

Author: Sharda Prasad IPS
While many factors put together do provide an excellent medium to cultivate the virus of crime, no individual factor can be said to be solely or in isolation responsible for crime. At one time it was widely believed that poverty gives rise to crime. But modern studies have brought out that there is no strong correlation between them.
