Nowadays, the citizens of India carry with them a very poor opinion about the Police –a very important institution of governance in India. Though  the Police in India have played a pronominal role in the process of governance since independence,yet the ruling elite and middle class citizens see them as political decoys and blame them for not playing their rightful roles in the process of governance. There is a grim lack of trust in and understanding of the nature and functions of the police in India. Urban criminality, organized crime, women & drug trafficking, human rights violation, cyber  crimes, disaster management and above all the threat of Global terrorism are some of the burning issues which need a critical deliberation.

There is a need to confabulate on how the Indian Policies constantly evolving itself to face these new challenges. Today the Indian Police is trying to constantly engage itself with the civil society. Globalization has also thrown up new threats and challenges to the Police in India. Moreover, the time has come to audit and evaluate police performance in India so that it can be re-organized and re-structured to ensure good governance.

Therefore, the 2-day national seminar would be providing a platform for discussion of the present scenario ,sharing of views, research findings and therein providing with alternate policy options to make the police more effective in the process of governance in India.
