Indian police force

Repeated instances in past one year have highlighted incompetence of our police forces. The approach take in high profile cases has been unprofessional to say it least. There has been total absence of any systematic approach from the protectors of society.

We as a democratic society need to look at this issue very seriously. Not enough thought and resources have gone in modernizing our police forces. Ruling out some exceptions, the training method employed is very archaic and impractical in modern day.

We need to invest lots of resources in such a critical institution. The training for our forces needs to be world class. The living condition of our Police jawans needs improvement at a rapid stage. A sense of pride and prestige need to be inculcated in our police force. This will make them more responsible and citizen friendly.
