Product Details

Agents of stability in society or a heavy-handed frontline of a government’s power? Ever since police forces have existed, there has also been this fractured perception. The position of the police has more often than not depended on its political masters, yet, it has borne an inordinate amount of flak from the citizenry it polices, in the past and now. As India moves up the economic chain, emotionally available police personnel are a basic requirement for a society to function as decreed by law and equitably serve the citizens.

Behind the Uniform: Not just a Cop examines the position of the Indian police forces, from multiple aspects. Often misused, mired in controversy and inappropriately used by its masters, police organisations and their staff have multiple rules to abide by, yet are hardly ever appreciated for their work. Their work has the responsibility to protect, serve and make the right decisions in a crisis. The work is risk prone, with exposure to crime and traumatic events. It involves being alert and observant, often comes with long work hours, irregular timings, being available 24/7 and having less time for family, friends and self. Poor work-life balance impacts their emotional and psychological health. Cops are being trained to upgrade their skills.

Nevertheless, their job-induced stress is deepening speedily. The book not only examines the everyday stresses of a cop, but is also a self-help guide for police personnel, while calling for a better understanding from administrators who formulate policies for an emerging India.
