The current model of Policing, which was developed during the British Raj is no longer suitable to tackle new age criminals in India. It has been witnessed that the environment in which Indian Police operate has undergone dramatic shifts. They are now overburdened and face difficulties in enforcing law of the land, as they are now challenged by rising expectations of citizens, growing sophistication of crime and budgetary constraints of police departments. Over the years, crime investigation has taken a back seat. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs data, the conviction rate of crimes committed under Indian Penal Code has dropped from 62.7% in 1972, to 46.8% in 2016. To make matters worse, in crime against women, the rate of conviction is only 18.9% and the remaining cases resulted in acquittals. The primary reasons behind low conviction rate in India are insufficient evidence collection by investigating cops along with under-funded and over-burdened forensic laboratories. During the DsGP/ IsGP Conference held in 2016, the Hon’ble Prime Minister expressed his views that Young Police officers need to train sub-ordinates on latest technologies, techniques in investigation, trend in crime etc. Hence, for effective implementation of resolution passed in the Conference, Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) in partnership with Haryana Police is organising 3rd edition of National level Young Superintendents of Police Conference in Gurugram, Haryana from March 5-6, 2020 at Apparel House, Institutional Area, Sector 44, Gurugram, Haryana (India).
