The Mystery of police reform

SC of India has directed for police reform and enactment of a model law in a PIL filed by the former DGP of UP, Prakash singh. The major directives of SC on this issue are

  1. Clear separation of law and order from crime functions of police.
  2. Police establishment board shall be established to regulate police placements.
  3. Fixed tenure to police officers in crucial positions.

Most of the state Governments have bypassed their implementation.

On the other side, ills of police functioning can not be explained only through political interference. There is growing dishonesty, callousness, lack of motivation among the police men. So, proper training in consumer sensitive policing with an ideal police as a service can help.
