No wonder the police force is so overstretched and corrupt. We are about 530,000+ officers short, then how can we expect a professional police force to operate. It is high time that the State and Central govt. tackle the police reform issue as well as hiring officers at a war footing. This is one of the first steps to be taken when developing a policing and CT strategy. Without boots on the ground and officers from every area and neighborhood, we will not be able to get the HUMINT needed nor expect the existing police force to work honorably and professionally. Infact, it should be mandated that every state govt. spends atleast 3% of its GDP on the police and doubles their pay as well as double their number.
