POLICING THE POLICE
PRAVEEN KUMARLovingly dedicated to SHOBHAYear of Publication: 2000
 
FOREWORD
Police police the people. Who police the police? How? The answer lies in'Policing the Police'. As the author says in an article in thi work, "Policing thepolice involves self-policing".This work delves deeply on this core aspect ofpolicing and lays bare the extant Indian Police setup, sheath by sheath, withthe precision of a master surgeon, only to rebuild it from the scratches withthe right essence of professionalism, commitment and zeal. It is anabundantly readable magnum opus of the author and a valuable referencefor understanding the pathology and the epinosic dynamics with which thepresent Indian Police suffer and identifies likely solutions for its redemption. Iam sure that this scholarly work serves as a ready-reckoner for both policprofessionals and common readers.This book stands out for the highest regard it holds for policing as aprofession and the paracute critique it makes of its practices in India. TheUPSC also comes under its critical gaze for its dull – witted performance.This book has another dimension. It, in certain aspects, interprets police andpolicing through the prism of a poet's sensibilities with idealisticinterpretations.The author's close association with events in police and hisclose observations in the police world for nearly a quarter of a century bringsauthenticity to whatever he says or analyses. The sensibilities of the authoras a poet with nearly half a dozen books of poems from him in Kannada andEnglish render his observations and analyses of police and policing highlyrefreshing and interesting.Bangalore,

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
"Policing the Police" is a sequel to my earlier book/Policing for thenew age'. Most of the articles of the present book were already published invarious newspapers including The Hindu, The Indian Express, TheTimes ofIndia and Deccan Herald and various periodicals and journals like Alive andThe Indian Journal of Criminology and Criminalistics. All those articles arereproduced in this book as in the original publications with the names of therespective newspapers, periodicals and journals indicated. Some of theresponses from the readers to the original publications are also reproducedat the end of the respective articles. I gratefully acknowledge the contributionof the editors of each of these newspapers, periodicals and journals,especially The Hindu, The Indian Express and Alive, in producing this work.And also those readers who responded to the articles through the columns ofthe newspapers and periodicals.Care is taken to emphasise certain core aspects of the discussion andanalyses, by figuring them in more than one article, depending on theimportance, to convey across ideas with right emphasis. It is hoped that thisexercise adds to the value and usefulness of the book. I would be failing inmy duty if I fail to express my gratitude to Shree A.R.Sridharan, IPS (rtd.),former Director General of Police and former Hon'ble member of theKarnataka Administrative Tribunal for his unstinted support andencouragement to my intellectual exercises. He is a rare oasis of pristinevalues and dignified restraint in the desert of police and bureaucracy,inhabited by immoral hawks.I acknowledge with deep humility, the contribution of my father, ShreeR.D.Suvarna in instilling in me the value and sense of delving deep into anddoing my best with total commitment, whatever I take up in my life. Withoutthat value and commitment to achieve higher in face of all odds, I would havebeen nowhere and certainly nowhere this work.October 29, 1999 -
