51st Foundation Day of BPR&D

  • Law and order is a state subject in the federal structure and to strengthen the federal structure, a link connecting the implementing agencies of all the states, that is, the police, and its federal organizations, is very important.
  • The challenges are faced from the perspective of the country, there are governments of different parties and ideologies in states, there are regional parties as well, apart from this, if law and order is to be ready to face the challenges, then there is a link to do that.
  • If that link is not there, the law and order system of the country will collapse and in 51 years, Bureau of Police Research & Development (BPR&D) has done a great job of connecting all the states in terms of law and order in the country.
  • Different states of the country have different policies and challenges and it was not possible for the states to meet these challenges until a central system assessing all these challenges, practicing its global parameters, do not work day and night to upgrade the force.
  • The greatest thing in a democracy is the freedom of the individual which is directly linked with law and order and democracy can never succeed without law and order.
  • More than 35,000 police personnel have sacrificed their lives in various works in last 75 years and laid down their lives for the country.
  • Today cyber-attacks, drone attacks, narcotic smuggling, throw currency and hawala rackets are the biggest challenges.
  • BPR&D is such an institution which should change its work according to the challenges.
  • The main task of BRP&D is to prepare our police forces by preparing them by studying the best practices around the world and assessing the changing challenges.
  • Basic policing cannot be good without improving the beat system.
  • More work needs to be done to revive, update and upgrade the beat system.

  • Shri Amit Shah said that the government has made a lot of agreements in the Northeast. NLFT agreement, resettlement of Bru refugees, Bodo peace agreement and agreement with Karbi Anglong.
  • Establishment of National Defense University, establishment of FSL University, coordination of criminal justice system with CCTN has been done.
  • We are also working very fast in the direction of e-procedure and e-forensics.
  • National Academy for Coastal Policing was also established in Gujarat, National Cyber ??Crime Portal has been dedicated to the nation.
  • We have made a very good use of the Private Security Agency Licensing Portal at the national level. FCRA has also been radically changed.

Way Forward

  • BPR&D should also work to modernize, train, operate and enhance operation skills of CAPFs in view of the kind of border security challenges that have come before us today. Hence Ministry of Home Affairs might amend its charter.
  • Bureau should work for institutionalizing reforms that have been implemented on the ground.
