  • 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, and there are regional parties as well, apart from this, if law and order are 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, the 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.

  • 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.

  • Bureau should work for institutionalizing reforms that have been implemented on the ground.
