Women Police Personnel : Status, Challenges and Reforms

Abstract :

The functional constraints of the Police Profession wants a cautious and slow moving

approach, which, when spelled out in operational terms, fixes a very low priority for police

reforms. The problems of Indian Police specially, the women police personnel are either too

obvious or too subtle to be comprehend by a layman. Police system deals with complex problems

like murder, robbery and assault. These are related with the societal problems and children and

women are involved in these activities both as victim and as offender. For full filling the

requirement of more patient & sympathetic employees, women police personnel were recruited.

The aim was to change the term 'Police Force' to 'Police System'. There is a lot of requirement to

counter the challenges & problems of women police. The job of policing requires political

direction and discretionary interpretations, subject to the overall control of the judiciary of the

country. The strength of women police personnel is inadequate & requires a lot of efforts to

maintain gender equality and women related crimes.

Traditionally the job of Police is considered as male dominating profession but now with

a change in socio- cultural environment and an increase in educational opportunities, women

have started recognizing their strength and their representation in Police Department is

increasing. But, still women as Police personnel have consistently been under- represented in

India. In this paper
