The hazard of the Indian police lies in immobility of its organisational structure.The existing police system is utterly devoid of any adjustment mechanism that keeps itrelevant to the

, quite obvious of thefuturistic kiaugh. A systematic study of the policing in India with an adequatepernoctation to screen the latest researches and findings in relevant fields of social andpoliticial systems and science and technology in reorienting the public organisation andadministration is an essential parameter in the vital exercise.A police setup worth its salt should meet the specific needs of the policing. Thepolice setup must necessarily be raucle in its frame to be capable of absorbing the shocksto which it would often be exposed. Secondly, motive factors should be substructed inthe body of the organisation as sound motivation alone can make policing a purposefulactivity. This should be reinforced with external motive factors that can be infused to theorganisation

. Thirdly, the system should be organised so as to generateoptimism and confidence

. Anotherimportant aspect that should weigh lourd in evolving an effective police organisation isevolving a mechanism whereby every police officer or unit is put in charge of a specific job matching his or its competence and aptitude. An element of entrain should bebrought to policing so that the work in hand can be attended to with genuine involvement
by each police officer. Another strategic principle of healthy police organisation ishaving absolute faith and giving full responsibilities to subordinates with a concomitant,reward and punishment system that follows at the heels. Any attempt to disturb thebalance of faith, full responsibility and reward and punishment system is certain to fellthe organisation into desuetude. The extant concept of collective responsibility through achain of command has gone
by its propensity to demotivate the real workers due tothe corrupt ambitions of those at higher levels in the chain of command. Policing hasgrown of late to be such an independent field of specialisiation that it is impossible for amortal being to be proficient in even a single aspect of policing. It is rather a folly toween a police officer as being able to handle all aspects of policing though at differenttimes. Hence, the need of specialisation-oriented policing. The present managerial worldis increasingly realising the importance of human resources as organisational inputs.Unless all-out efforts are made to inhaust to police the

of the countrywith exceptional attributes of probity, intelligence and commitment and impart eximiousand purposeful training to bring out the best of each, no efforts at updating theorganisation can bring about a sempiternal transformation in the setup. The fact thatpolicing can be successful only with popular co-operation, focuses the attention of thepolice organisation on the needs of building up its image. Although efforts are alreadyafoot towards building up the image of the police, the depths of the possibilities are yetto be fully explored and exploited. A scientific approach in this score will make policing

. Also, the scope for scholarly and intellectual activities in policing willmake policing multi-dimensional and add to its effectiveness. The fremit reception givento intellectual activities in some quarters of policing may not go down too well with the
future police planners. The future police organisation and administration should cater tothe need of intellectual activities.The present police organisation and administrative system have to be overhauledin the near future as the ineffectivensess of the extant system becomes increasinglyobvious with the flaws in the edifice starting to gape wider. The areas whereinrestructuring may be desirable and the thrusts sine qua non to stuff the

to have a featous police setup, quite capable of facing the challenges of thefuture, are discussed below.The proclivity of weighing the police with reinforcement of all types of legislations has become a major hazard to effective policing. While the proliferation of legislations in independent India made it impossible even to keep track of their numbers,it is senseless to ween the police as being able to enforce them all. The stupendous task of enforcing these legilsations adversely affects the effectiveness of the police andcorrodes its credibility. This is emphatically so with social legislations which pass out of our legislative houses
cohibition. These progressive measures are inherentlycontroversial in nature and their enforcement by the police weakens its credibility as anagency of serious business and peremptory order. It is plauditory to conceive of thepolice as a vehicle of progressive measures, but in the process, is certain to put both itscredibility and professionalism into jeopardy as the social legilsatioons lack depth andgravity to enforce them and assiduous enforcement may ricochet as an out-cry of
