c) Having better relation with the public
In a society, where thousands of people live, differences / problems among individuals are bound to occur. These differences sometimes end up in crime from petty thefts to dacoities, to murder, to kidnapping and, more lately to cyber crime. The police is the most important government agency which maintains law and order. Hence it becomes of paramount important that the police force remain in healthy state.
For any government agency to work effectively, training is an important aspect. If the training is lacking, the efficiency will go down. Every job has a peculiar training requirement. A policeman has to deal with the public and has long working hours hence the first and foremost requirement is that he should be mentally and physically healthy. Secondly, to take the criminal to a conclusive trial, he should be an expert at collecting evidence. Thirdly, he should be an expert in handling weapon and equipment because often situations arise when force has to bring the offender to the book.
Gone are the days when Jaggu Dada was responsible of all crimes in a locality. Today so many people are involved in various kinds of crime that police investigations has become a very difficult task. Hence the need for modernization. The police today heavily banks on computers to store and record various kinds of data. They need proper weapons to incapacitate the offender. A water cannon rather than tear gas shells is better to break a hostile rally. They need a better and more reliable communication network. Lastly, they need swift and better transport to physically apprehend the culprits. The police also need the assistance of the doctor fraternity to prove crime.
Better relation with the public
In our country, the public has a fear of the police. We are fed with numerous stories of the bad treatment/experience individuals had in dealing with the police. A few black sheep who exist in every department give a bad name to organization. Police all over the country is trying to improve its image. No wonder the Delhi Police has coined the slogan, “With you, for you, always.” Today, the SHOs of police stations are easily available and ghey brief the public on the latest situation of their case. Senior police officials hold public durbars where public grievances are resolved. On the other hand it is also the duty of the public grievances are resolved. On the other hand it is also the duty of the public to cooperate and give regard to the police personnel. Public encouragement will motivate him to perform better. A better Police-Public relation will go a long way to clean the society.
