This book is a compendium of 17 essays, which are well researched, analyzed and documented by the author on the basis of his rich experience in the fields of internal security and policing. The author raises certain pertinent questions, which are in the contemporary law and order scenario of the country, need the serious attention of the governments, police leaders, intellectuals and social activists and the society, at large. Whether the police with the existing organizational structure, manpower, resources and present style of functioning can cope up with the new challenges? To what extent, the police personnel are equipped with the cerebral skills and professionalism to effectively deal with the new brand of cyber-crimes, money-laundering and terrorism that go beyond the contours of countries and continents? What innovative mechanisms, strategic management policies and organizational changes are required to equip and professionalize police to meet these challenges? If not, where we have gone wrong in such crucial areas? This work unfolds a number of such sensitive issues and comes out with bold and unbiased findings which would be an eye-opener to administrators and police leaders. Simultaneously, the book draws the attention of the people and society to certain crucial aspects of policing such as community policing, police-public partnership, expectations of the society from the police, myth and realities of corruption in police, image crisis of police, the need of transforming the police into an effective instrument of public service and the concept of `privatization' and `civilianization' with wider application of Information Technology, scientific and forensic aids to investigate so as to liberate the police from a scourge of human and civil rights violations. Vision for Police-2020 is definitely on above lines. The main focus and attraction of this book is that many new thoughts and ideas have been incorporated in the book which are definitely debatable among police leaders, social scientists and human/civil right activists.Printed Pages: 264.
