POLICE: COORDINATION

Wishful thinking
Joint police effort still pitiable

   Crime is no longer limited to time, space or a group of people. But guess what? India still has not got down to structuring out a meaningful, well-structured inter-state police coordination department. This at a time when cyber-crime, inter-state immoral trafficking, narcotics trade, to name a few, are taking crime to a higher evolutionary phase. While Central Government keeps assuming that law and order is a state subject, the Indian policy makers still don’t feel forced enough to set up, say, an all-India Federal Council with full state participation to investigate inter-state crimes.

Just as an example, cyber-crime has been documented to be rapidly expanding in India due to extensive use of internet. There were 302 cases registered in 2005 against 279 such cases in 2004. So far, legal wrangles have prevented the quick disposal or even handling of these cases. Strangely, almost all the state and central government police departments set up to solve such crime work discretely and separately, coordinating only in rare cases when some or the other project urgently requires such a step. It’s a pity that while the world talks about a global coordinated effort to fight organised crime, we’re still floundering!
