Policing the Police: An Analytical Study of the Philosophy and Field Dynamics of the Policing in Practice

Praveen Kumar (Author)
Synopsis Police police the people. Who police the police? How? The answer lies in ‘Policing the Polcie’. As the author says in an article in this work, “Policing the police involves self-policing”. This work delves deeply on this core aspect of policing and lays bare the extant Indian Police setup, sheath by sheath, with the precision of a master surgeon, only to rebuild it from the scratches with the right essence of professionalism, commitment and zeal. It is an abundantly readable magnum opus of the author and a valuable reference for understanding the pathology and the epinosic dynamics with which the present Indian Police suffer and identifies likely solutions for its redemption…. This book stands out for the highest regard it holds for policing as a profession and the paracute critique it makes of its practices in India. The UPSC also comes under its critical gaze for its dull – witted performance. This book has another dimension. It, in certain aspects, interprets police and policing through the prism of a poet’s sensibilities with idealistic interpretations. The author’s close association with events in police and his close observations in the police world for nearly a quarter of a century brings authenticity to whatever he says or analyses. The sensibilities of the author as a poet with nearly half a dozen books of poems from him in Kannada and English render his observations and analyses of police and policing highly refreshing and interesting.
