BOOK REVIEWS OF POLICING THE POLICE


A POLICE officer and a prolific writer, Praveen Kumar, has published 
another anthology ……….in the form of this book.……… "Policing the police" 
acquires more relevance today in the context of the criminalisation of 
not just politics, but of the services as well……….Coming as a sequel to 
his earlier book Policing for the New Age, the author chooses to 
describe policemen as "social doctors" and policing as a "surgical 
operation to systematically remove cancerous growths from the body of 
society”. 
THE HINDU 

Praveen Kumar is not only an upright police officer but also a poet and 
a prolific writer.……..Policing the Police—an analytical Study of the

recruitment,unsound training and unhealthy job culture and identifies 
likely solutions for its redemption. 
DECCAN HERALD 

Praveen Kumar gives an insight into the Indian police set-up and 
analyses the problems of the department, with interesting illustrations

he not only analyses the problems, but also suggests solutions. 
THE ASIAN AGE 

The author expresses concern over sycophants climbing the ladder and 
reaching the top to hold the reins and guide the destiny of the police. 
The result — a spiritless culture created by incompetent 
leaders…….Policing the police involves self-policing. Through the book, 
the author has made an honest effort to throw some light on the state of 
affairs of Indian police.
