9788132107279: Community Policing: Misnomer or Fact?

Community Policing discusses the philosophy of community policing, its governing schools of thoughts, and its strengths and weaknesses. The volume also deals with conceptual variances of community policing, the factors that impede smooth collaboration between police and public, and the organizational principles that have been neglected by police organizations and others. Veerendra Mishra negotiates with the idea of allowing civilian participation to become one of the legitimate means of checking police excesses. He argues that compliance of law must go hand in hand with protecting basic rights of people.

About the Author:

Veerendra Mishra is Secretary, Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA), Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India. Earlier, he was Assistant Inspector General (CID) with Madhya Pradesh Police. He was awarded the prestigious Hubert Humphrey Fellowship (under Fulbright Scholarship) on the subject of human trafficking during 2012–2013. He has extensively studied the workings of police―both local police bodies and international bodies such as the United Nations Police (UNPOL). He served in three UN missions―in Bosnia–Herzegovina, Kosovo, and East Timor. He stayed in East Timor for five months and was instrumental in preparing training modules for community policing training to community members of the country, as a pro-bono consultant of the Asia Foundation.

Dr Mishra did his PhD on “Changing Image of Police: An Empirical Study” from Barkatullah University, Bhopal, in 2004. He has authored a book titled Community Policing: Misnomer or Fact (SAGE, 2011) and edited another book, Human Trafficking: The Stakeholders’ Perspective (SAGE, 2013). He also writes fiction; he has written a short-story book, and contributed stories in the Chicken Soup Soul series. He recently co-produced and co-directed a documentary film titled Do I Have a Choice, which is on the community-based sexual exploitation of Bedia community.

Review:

Veerendra Mishra's book is a welcome addition to the literature on community policing. book will be a good read not only for police officers but also for academics, social scientists and informed members of the public who want to build a closer relationship between the police and the community. It displays author's scholarship as well as intimate understanding of the complexities of the role of the police and the strategies necessary to improve participative policing.

--(The Statesman 2012-03-25)

Veerendra Mishra's book, Community Policing is an important contribution in the area of policing in a democratic and multicultural society like India. Written in a simple and lucid style, the book presents an overview on the issue of people's participation in policing, especially in the postcolonial societies with multiple narratives and contestations around caste, gender, race, ethnicity and class. Written from the point of view of policy makers and implementers, Mishra tries to delineate the complexities involved in  shifting gears from 'law and order' to 'participative' policing in the Indian context... the book is well researched and there are some interesting anecdotes and insights throughout its text...This book would be useful to serving trainee police officers, policy makers, and students of law, criminology, victimology, social work and also to anyone who wants an overview of the issue. --(eSocialSciences)

Book Description Sage Publications, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Community policing is a widely discussed philosophy within law enforcement the world over. However, its implementation has remained inadequate either due to the organizational settings of the police or the suspicious approach of the community. This book offers solutions to these problems by analyzing the conceptual variances and factors that impede smooth collaboration between the police and the public. The author discusses the underlying philosophy, governing schools of thought, and the strengths and weaknesses of community policing. He also explains important policing concepts such as Police Syndrome, Tracking Participation Footprint, and Image Dating/Image Mapping. Four case studies from Madhya Pradesh (India) and Timor-Leste help in further elucidating the practical applicability of these concepts. The author negotiates with the idea of allowing civilian participation to become a legitimate means of making the police accountable. He argues that compliance of law must go hand in hand with protecting the fundamental rights of people in order to preserve a liberal democratic society. Printed Pages: 248.
