Com­mu­nity polic­ing for stu­dents


The National Po­lice Mis­sion un­der the Bureau of Po­lice Re­search & De­vel­op­ment (BPR&D) has pre­pared a plan pro­posal on ‘Com­mu­nity Polic­ing for Stu­dents’ on the ba­sis of the stu­dent po­lice cadet model of Ker­ala, for im­ple­men­ta­tion in se­lected states dur­ing the Twelfth Five Year Plan on pilot ba­sis.

The pro­posal pre­pared by BPR&D has been re­ceived in the Min­istry of Home Af­fairs. Its im­ple­men­ta­tion is sub­ject to avail­abil­ity of funds, con­sent of state gov­ern­ments and ac­cep­tance of other agen­cies, who are pro­posed to be en­gaged in the pro­ject im­ple­men­ta­tion, ac­cord­ing to Mul­lap­pally Ra­machan­dran, Min­is­ter of State for Home Af­fairs.

Wil­liam Radasky and Peter Vin­cent Pry point out that the EMP Com­mis­sion re­port was a col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort be­tween “the In­tel­li­gence Com­mu­nity…the mil­i­tary ser­vices…the National Nu­clear Se­cu­rity Ad­min­is­tra­tion lab­o­ra­to­ries…the Depart­ment of De­fense and the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity,” all of which con­cluded that the US is un­pre­pared for an EMP at­tack.

An EMP is a high-in­ten­sity burst of elec­tro­mag­netic en­ergy caused by the rapid ac­cel­er­a­tion of charged par­ti­cles. An EMP can change the mag­netic field in the earth’s at­mos­phere to dis­rupt elec­tronic de­vices by a pulse flow­ing through elec­tric­ity trans­mis­sion lines, over­load­ing and dam­ag­ing trans­mis­sion dis­tri­bu­tion cen­ters.
