Is it really necessary that the police department should be controlled by the local political administration? That is, by the chief minister or any other minister?

We all know that this was done to keep them under the control of ruling parties, now as we both know that we know- that is, the public knows and the political parties know that the public knows is not it the right time, and perfect time to free them from any direct control of ruling parties of any state or center?

We will see that police is used as personal guards by political parties, not public servants, the public pays their tax earned money to the income tax department and governments use that money to pay police force aka their personal guards salary. So they don’t even bother if the rest of the public is saved. This scenario needs to be changed. Those days are long gone when public was spoon fed by political parties, now, they have their own thinking, and which mostly is on the right track, so, its high time to change it.

The police department should be controlled by a body free from political influence. Not only that, that body should procure public opinion and suggestions from time to time for a long, long time to transform the present scenario.

Its a shame that people cant depend on police for their protection. It truly is.

  1. The problem is that it cant be extra-constitutional ( means out of the jurisdiction of constitution) – so it has to be under someone who is given constitutional power; and all the top power wielders in our constitution are political bodies. Given the federal structure of our constitution there has to be some power sharing between the center and the state… hence again the authority over police is shared.. can you think of a way out? Should we now elect a Police head too.. errrr. election! means another body mired by politics !

    1. you know you have given a very good idea, may be the public should be allowed to elect the governing body of police force, based on their past performances! their performance sheets should be assessed by judges.

  2. The police are peopled by the people and all people have political intonations. In the cities the police should be under the local government (Nagar Palika) and at the state level by the CM. The centre should have police only in the centrally administered areas like Delhi, Pondicheri etc.

    1. that is the problem, the chief ministers always use the police for the welfare of themselves and their own! i think the police will be made semi autonomous like army, may be they can appoint a body of public elected cops to head them but politicians should be a strict no no
