This module has been designed to provide police personnel with information pertinent to their responsibilities as the “First Police Responder” to the criminal offense crime scenes. The training is built on information gathered through years of actual police experience, as well as information pertaining to the scientific forensic examination of physical evidence. The need for this training is derived from statistical data and on-site assessments of police organizations worldwide. That information indicates valuable physical evidence is often being contaminated or destroyed, and crucial witness information overlooked, due to a lack of training and proper organizational protocols. It is the goal of this training course to instill a new appreciation and understanding of the valuable role every patrol officer plays in the criminal investigative process.
For more than a century, countries throughout the world have relied on the services of the police organizations to solve crimes. Much has been said and written about the criminal investigators, and almost always complete credit for solving a crime is given to the investigator in charge. Rarely, if ever, is any credit given to the first police officer to the to reach the scene, yes it is that “First Police Responder” who acts as the initial care taker and decision maker for potentially crucial evidence. It is the decisions of the first officer on the scene that bears strong influence on the eventual outcome of the crime scene and subsequent follow-up investigations. Without the correct actions of the “First Police Responder”, many cases would go unsolved, regardless of the abilities of the criminal investigator assigned to the case.
The training contains a complete description and explanation of the various forms of physical evidence that a “First Police Responder” can expect to encountered at crime scenes. Participants will be instructed on how to recognize and protect such physical evidence. Participants will also receive instruction on the value and strengths of the various forms physical evidence once collected and subjected to forensic examination.
The purpose of crime scene investigation is to help establish what happened (crime scene reconstruction) and to identify the responsible person. This is done by carefully documenting the conditions at a crime scene and recognizing all relevant physical evidence. The ability to recognize and properly collect physical evidence is oftentimes critical to both solving and prosecuting violent crimes. It is no exaggeration to say that in the majority of cases, the law enforcement officer who protects and searches a crime scene plays a critical role in determining whether physical evidence will be used in solving or prosecuting violent crimes.
The need for police reforms in India is long recognized. There has been almost three decades of discussion by government created committees and commissions. Way back in 1979 the National Police Commission (NPC) was set up to report on policing and give recommendations for reform. The Commission produced eight reports, dozens of topic specific recommendations and also a Model Police Act.
None of the major recommendations were adopted by any government. This persuaded two former Director General’s of Police (DGPs) in 1996 to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court asking the Court to direct governments to implement the NPC recommendations. In the course of the 10 year long case, in 1998 the Court set up the Ribeiro Committee which handed in its reports in 1999.
It was only a decade later in 2006 that the Court delivered its verdict. In what is popularly referred to as the Prakash Singh case the Supreme Court ordered that reform must take place. The states and union territories were directed to comply with seven binding directives that would kick start reform. These directives pulled together the various strands of improvement generated since 1979. The Court required immediate implementation of its orders either through executive orders or new police legislation.
Initially, the Court itself monitored compliance of all States and Union Territories. However, in 2008 it set up a three member Monitoring Committee with a two year mandate to examine compliance state by state and report back to it periodically.
The seven directives provide practical mechanisms to kick-start reform. They make up a scheme which if implemented holistically will correct the common ills that create poor police performance and unaccountable law enforcement today. The scheme puts in place mechanisms to better ensure that: the police have functional responsibility while remaining under the supervision of the political executive; political control of police by the political executive is conditioned and kept within its legitimate bounds; internal management systems are fair and transparent; policing efficiencies are increased in terms of their core functions and police accountability enhanced.
Directions of the Supreme Court in Prakash Singh v. Union of India
Separate the investigation and law and order functions of the police:
The Problem :- Investigations are poorly mounted, slow, done by inadequately trained and unspecialized staff and frequently subject to manpower deflection into other pressing law and order duties.
The Solution :- The investigating police shall be separated from law and order police to ensure speedier investigation, better expertise and improved rapport with the people. It must, however, be ensured that there is full coordination between the two wings. The separation, to start with, may be effected in towns/urban areas which have a population of ten lakhs or more and gradually extended to smaller towns/urban areas also. It is felt that this will streamline policing, ensure speedier and more expert investigation. The Court has not said how this separation is to take place in practice but clearly indicates that there must be full coordination between the two wings of the police.
Compliance with Directive 4: Separation of Investigation and Law & Order Functions
Compliance with Directive 4: Separation of investigation from law and order
Fully Compliant Functions separated as prescribed by the SC
Directive not implemented
Several states – Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, and Sikkim have complied with the Supreme Court’s directive to separate the law and order police with the investigation police. However a majority of states have not fully implemented this directive.
Modernization of State Police Forces (MPF) Scheme
Police’ and ‘law and order’ fall under the category of subjects within the domain of the State as per Entry 2 of List II of the VIIth Schedule in the Constitution of India. Thus, the principal responsibility for managing these subjects lies with the State Governments. However, the States have not been able to fully modernize and equip their police forces up to the desired level due to financial constraints. It is in this context that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has been supplementing the efforts and resources of the States, from time to time, by implementing the Scheme for Modernization of State Police Forces (MPF Scheme) since 1969-70.
Continuation of MPF Scheme for a period of five years 2012-13 to 2016-17:
The Government has approved the proposal for continuation of the Scheme of Modernization of State Police Forces (MPF Scheme) for five years from 2012-13 to 2016-17 under ‘Non-Plan’ and ‘Plan’, with an allocation of Rs.8628.43 crore under ‘Non-Plan’ and Rs.3750.87 crore in the ‘Plan’.
The actual allocation of funds to State Governments under the Scheme, both under ‘Non-Plan’ and ‘Plan’, would, however, depend upon the budgetary resources made available by the Ministry of Finance and Planning Commission in each financial year. The allocation of available funds amongst the States under the Scheme shall be made by MHA on pro-rata basis, in terms of the distribution ratio approved for this purpose.
The items required by the State Police under the components, ‘mobility’, ‘weapons’, ‘equipment’, ‘training equipment’, ‘forensic equipment’, etc. shall be funded under ‘Non-Plan’. The construction / upgradation of police stations / outposts, police lines, police housing, construction of forensic science laboratories and training infrastructure shall be funded under ‘Plan’ components of MPF.
Under the Scheme, the States are grouped into two categories, namely Category ‘A’ and Category ‘B’ for the purpose of funding both under ‘Non-Plan’ and Plan. Category ‘A’ States, namely, J&K and 8 North Eastern States including Sikkim will be eligible to receive financial assistance on 90:10 Centre: State sharing basis. The remaining States will be in Category ‘B’ and will be eligible for financial assistance on 60:40 Centre: State sharing basis.
The mission statement is: “Skilled Police for Empowered Society”
