History of Profile

The Latin word "Politia", the Greek word "Polis",the Spanish word "Policia"and the French word "Police" sound more or less similar in pronunciation. The word Police is derived from all these words, which mean citizenship, government, capital and city. The rulers in the different ages sought the service of a group of people in order to keep law and order, to prevent crimes, to find out criminals, to execute punishment, to ensure law, discipline and morality, and to provide security among the subjects. In a broad sense such caretakers evolved into Police force in later ages.

The term 'Police' broadly connotes the purposeful maintenance of public order and protection of persons and property from the hazards of public accidents and the commission of unlawful acts.

The Origin of Police

Social life was the first civilized development made by the ancient man who wandered about aimlessly like animals. He realized that social life had several advantages. Social life gave him the courage to hunt the animals down, to protect him from their attack and to control the nature to a large extent. Nevertheless his animal instincts and his desire to lead a free life of his own were not swept out in the social flow. He had to control himself as he realized that his own individual actions might cause problems to the well being of others. Consequently he began to exercise his conscience in controlling his instincts. This 'conscience' may be referred to as the first Police.

The next stage in the development of social life was the formation of tribal units. The laws applicable for a small social life were found unsuitable to meet the vastness of the tribal life. Thus in addition to the Police, there needed other controlling authorities. The present day Legislature, Executive and Judiciary evolved out of these circumstances. The Police realized their aims in the well-being and the prosperity of the public, the society, and the tribal unit.

When the concept of the state emerged, the Police shouldered more responsibility and meaningfulness. Preventing criminal instincts, maintaining the unity and security of the society, striving for the upliftment of the state etc became the ultimate aims of the Police. The Legislature, The Executive, and the Judiciary are the three functions of the Government. The Government should not only plan and execute welfare activities to the people but also see to it that the laws framed for that purpose are obeyed strictly. Those who violate the laws or act against them should be prevented. Otherwise it will affect the very existence of the Government. The Police help the Government considerably in this regard. Thus Police became an instrument to protect the fundamental, financial, cultural, political, and penal rights of the people and to uphold the pride and dignity of the nation.
