Indian cops in a small towns
may be we should spend more money teaching our police forces how to grip a pistol rather than buying ultra modern weapons for them
I felt, i had an awkward posting on a wrong thread...alaas... I have heard this story from many PAC guys who also said this story was somewhat censored.
Wow shotguns. I love them. Btw i`m seeing shotguns in the hands of an Indian policeman for the first time. Which state do they belong?
J&K police, Rubber bullets..
wow the are still preserving the ww2 era stens.
What is the impact of those rubber bullets? I know they wont kill anyone but surely can make anyone lick their a****. Isnt it?
it is not a WW 2 version, it is a model of 1970's, But it is more potent, handy,cost effective east cary and most suited for urban police than than .303, SLR, NSAS and 7.62 1A1. These IPS top brass monkeys do not see the good potential of certain GOOD OLD things that are still use full in our country environment.
What is the ratio of police to the general population? I heard it is quite low in India compared to other countries. Plus in western press general consensus is that they are underpaid and under trained. Would welcome forum members views.
States told to speed up modernisation of police forces
NEW DELHI, APRIL 16:
In what could be termed as a befitting reply to the Statesâ€™ aggressive stance against the proposed National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), the Centre has highlighted the Statesâ€™ record in modernisation of police forces and nearly 25 per cent vacancy in State police forces. The Centre has urged the States and the Ministry of Home Affairs to carry forward police modernisation.
At a conference of Chief Ministers on internal security, the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, said, â€œNo system or structure can be better than the people who man it. The internal security structures of India are no exception. It is, therefore, important that we find ways and means of improving not just the number but also the quality of our police personnel.â€
Dr Singh said this meeting would suggest new and innovative ways to address this issue and make rapid progress in improving the conditions under which our personnel work. â€œIf we are able to do so, we would be repaying in some measure the dedicated and loyal service of our police and defence personnel, who have helped us to make our country safer,â€ he added.
Earlier, the Home Minister, Mr P. Chidambaram, referred to the unfinished tasks in the Modernisation of Police Force Scheme. He said, â€œThe scheme was allocated Rs 1,111 crore in 2011-12, but we had to surrender Rs 311 crore because some States had large unspent balances.â€
For the current year, there is a provision of Rs 900 crore. He urged the States to address deficiencies in the implementation of the scheme. This would help him in requesting the Finance Minister for more funds.
Referring to the first-ever compilation of data on police organisations in India as on January 1, 2011, the Home Minister said there were only 100 civil police for a population of one lakh. The vacancies in all ranks were over five lakh or about 25 per cent of the sanctioned strength.
The States spent about Rs 50,000 crore on the police in 2010-11, but that was only 4.76 per cent of the total budgeted expenditure of all States. Of this, only about Rs 700 crore was spent on training.
â€œThe findings speak for themselves. The study is a wake-up call for all of us and I would urge you (States) to take the corrective steps that are so urgently needed to enhance our capacity to meet the challenges,â€ Mr Chidambaram said.

Some really fit Punjab Police
Only sardars can control pakis
My comments are limited to the Mumbai police.
While they may not be the fittest on earth, their pre-fight skills are certainly exemplary. And they can give anybody a run for their money in that aspect. When it comes down to the threat and use of force, "stare-downs", intimidation, back-talk. cornering, distracters and arousal/intensity regulation, they set the bar very high.
Besides. their fitness levels are certainly improved. There are a lot fewer cops with pot bellies today, than compared with ten or fifteen years ago, when every second cop had a pot-belly. Successive police Commissioners, including Arup Patnaik, have focused particularly on the fitness aspect of the police: with Patnaik actually commissioning the first exclusive Mumbai Police Bodybuilders' Association (inaugural "Mumbai Police "Shree" this year).
I am now intimately involved with the Mumbai police, training Krav Maga, and some of the pre-fight skills they talk about could inform the science of fighting itself.
