Message from Director General
Bureau of Police Research & Development has been working for improvement in the delivery of police services, under the overall guidance of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
In addition to its role in policy planning for smart as well as safe city projects, BPR&D has also taken huge initiative in capacity building towards gender justice as well as containing crimes in general. Recently, a platform called 'COPPS' (Confluence of Organizations Promoting Policing Standards) has been launched, integrating all the institutions from various fields so as to usher in the best practices in policing, including the induction of new technologies. 'C4C' (Centre for Citizens), a virtual interface, is also in the offing to link it with responsible citizens who want to be a part of the process for betterment of policing. This is in tune with the vision to integrate scholars with the police for greater synergy through deliberations on Cyber Security, Cyber Crime, Cyber Forensics, Dark Web, Artificial Intelligence and Predictive Policing.
Significant projects that have had an impact on the quality of service by the police are also under progress. They include Impact Assessment of Police Modernization Scheme, Crime Victimization Survey, Witness Protection Scheme, Highway Safety, Community Policing, Student Police Cadet Scheme. In all its endeavors, BPR&D aims at augmenting positive attitude towards service orientation, integrity and professionalism among the policemen.
We look forward to suggestions from all quarters.
With best wishes,
