Police must change from a force to a service
Will the Indian police, which has been a force used by colonial rulers and their successors to execute their orders, will change to become a Peoples Service, as envisaged by the founding fathers of our Constitution? One of the main problems faced by the police has been constant interference in their working by the new breed of politicians. It has been difficult for the police to work independently, and serve the people of the country. There is hope that things would change. Much of the credit should go to Prakash Singh, former retired Director General of Police of Uttar Pradesh, who has been able to get a directive from the Supreme Court earlier this year to insulate the police from political pressure. But not all police personnel know about these directives. Singh has written an open letter to all police personnel in the country to make them aware of these directives. He has used Gfiles, the magazine that reaches all bureaucrats, including police personnel to convey his message. He has pointed out that the Supreme Court has, in its directive visualized three new institutions at the State level. ANI
