IPF – TC2 Conference

Building Police as a Knowledge-based & Learning Organization

When: 1 February, 2020 (Saturday)
Where: IU India Gateway, E-12 (On Ring Road) Defence Colony, New Delhi

Modern professional policing demands continuous generation of new knowledge to deal effectively with emerging problems. From its early days, Indian police supported this idea by creating the BPRD & NCRB, NICFS and starting the Indian Police Journal etc. Recently, the government has initiated promising steps such as the creation of Institute of Criminology & Forensics and Police Universities. Two such universities are functioning in Ahmadabad and Jodhpur while a national university is emerging in Delhi. IIT Kanpur has started a Center for CJUS Research and several institutes like TISS/ Madras University/ Dharwad University are also offering graduate level criminology courses. 

This conference, being managed by Prof Arvind Verma, Mr. Nandkumar Saravade and N. Ramachandran seeks to bring together administrators and academics from these centers as well as experts  police leaders to discuss methods of building police as a knowledge-based organization. The dialogue between those who are engaged in production of police knowledge and its users in field settings is expected to provide the impetus to conceptualize and transform the Indian police into a knowledge-based learning organization.
