RE-UNION SEMINAR OF IPS OFFICRS OF 1985 BATCH (38th RR)

Re-union Seminar of IPS Officers of 1985 Batch (38 RR) conducted on “Specialization in Police Functioning-Need and Strategies” at SVP National Police Academy Hyderabad on July Ist and 2nd, 2010. Two officers namely Shri Ram Lubhaya, IPS and Shri S.Gopal Reddy, IPS of 1985 batch participated in the Seminar from the State of J&K.

SPECIALIZATION IN POLICE

Specialization is the process by which tasks within an occupational area (policing) are divided amongst the constituent members of segments of the profession, materials and people are grouped together to perform various specific tasks.

Initially this process of 'Departmentation', as it is called, serves to maximize overall organizational efficiency although disadvantages may emerge over time.

Specialization gives rise to:- Professionalism, organizational efficiency, competition and conflict between specialized units, breakdown in communication, even job dissatisfaction among workers in the units.

POLICE SPECIALIZATION AND JOB SATISFACTION

Specialists within an organisation like the police force may be distinguished from their more generalist colleagues, primarily by the job characteristic - task identity. In other words, police officers concerned only with the investigation of crime are carrying out one aspect of the work performed by all police.

Officers who specialize are able to observe a visible outcome, to assume 'ownership' of their labours, while those like general duties officers, who are generally only one link in the chain of events surrounding the law enforcement process, may not be privy to the outcome.

On this basis, it can be hypothesized that differences between specialist and generalist police on job satisfaction may emerge as a result of differences in their job characteristics. In other words specialization of duties may foster the development of greater task identity and, possibly, autonomy.

Since motivating potential of a job is determined by such factors, this may result in greater motivating potential residing in the police duties performed by Crime Investigation Branch officers, in comparison to those performed by general duties police.

Jobs that provide more motivation will also impact upon organisational commitment, although the strength of the relationship should be less than that between job characteristics and satisfaction. This is because organisational commitment is a global measure, concerned with the strength of an individual’s identification with, and involvement in, the organisation.

Specialist policing is more motivating, officers should report a desire to move to such sections of the organisation

TRADITIONAL FIELDS OF SPECIALIZATION IN POLICING:

Investigation, Intelligence gathering, Traffic management/enforcement, VIP Security, L&O Bandobust, Security( coastal security, airport security, vital instalation etc.),HR Management, Communication ( IT,Wireless/Radio,Cryptography).

EMERGING FIELDS OF SPECIALIZATION IN POLICING:

Investigation and Intelligence gathering in terror crimes, International and inter-state dimensions, Patronage from the rogue states – state & non state actors, circumstantial evidence, at times is very important, How to deal with the ‘foreign terrorists’ with existing criminal justice system, Technology in investigation and intelligence, Human Trafficking, Terrorist Financing, Organised Crime, Economic

Crimes, Wildlife Crimes, Corporate Frauds, Cyber Crime and Cyber Forensics, Cyber Warfare, Cyber Terrorism, Crime pertaining to Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), Crime pertaining with Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMDs), Aviation Security and Naval (maritime) security, Vital Installation Security Management, Criminal and Forensic psychology.

STRATEGY:

If policing is to be effective in the years ahead, specialisation is crucial. Three distinct police services with separate recruitment and training are suggested: (1) Regulatory police or uniformed police in charge of law and order and other regulatory duties; (2) Mainstay police in charge of crime investigation and prevention and security and intelligence operation; (3) Social police in charge of prevention and investigation of all social offences and implementation of social legislation.
