Now try and answer the following questions:

  1. “That police is a State subject complicates matters, but self-correction within the force is essential” Critically analyse this statement with reference to the state of police reforms in the country.
  2. What are the recommendations of the National Police commission? Why haven’t its recommendations been implemented till now?
  3. “Mere autonomy to the police and job security, without upgrading the quality of recruits and ensuring dedication and honesty in the day-to-day delivery of service to the public, will be of little avail”. Critically Analyse this statement.

Points to Ponder:

  1. Why does the debate on police reforms sound irrelevant and unappealing to the average citizen? What is the reason for the apathy in the police forces to the plight of common citizens?
  2. Suggest some innovative reforms in the Police forces.
