Police Organisation in India

Dec 25, 2015 Download File

While the police is the most visible arm of the state, the public has little knowledge about the internal structure and organisation of the various police forces – state and central – in India. Most people do not know how the police is organised, staffed, governed, financed and run; or the differences between police organisations in size, scope and mandate. This booklet seeks to fill the information gap and provide a comprehensive resource to the public that explains all aspects of police structure and organisation, such as rank structure and duties, the internal hierarchy, recruitment, training, supervision and budgets, among others for both state and central police forces.
