Functions, Roles and Duties of Police in General

Introduction

1. Police are one of the most ubiquitous organisations of the society. The policemen,

therefore, happen to be the most visible representatives of the government. In an hour

of need, danger, crisis and difficulty, when a citizen does not know, what to do and

whom to approach, the police station and a policeman happen to be the most

appropriate and approachable unit and person for him. The police are expected to be

the most accessible, interactive and dynamic organisation of any society. Their roles,

functions and duties in the society are natural to be varied, and multifarious on the one

hand; and complicated, knotty and complex on the other. Broadly speaking the twin

roles, which the police are expected to play in a society are maintenance of law and

maintenance of order. However, the ramifications of these two duties are numerous,

which result in making a large inventory of duties, functions, powers, roles and

responsibilities of the police organisation.

part of overall police functioning. Needless to say that policemen will be able to 9

discharge their various duties and functions better, if they obtain good understanding

of the philosophy, principles and tenets of conflict resolution and conflict

management.
