This little book has met with a most generous reception, specially at the hands of the Inspectors-General of Police of many of the Provinces of India. The sale in consequence has been so rapid, that a re print is necessitated. Further, many en quiries have been made for copies in Urdoo and Marathi. To meet these demands I have been fortunate enough to secure the assistance of Mr. Abdul Huq, Urdoo Trans lator to His Highness Government, and of Mr. H. B. Atre, a well known Marathi Scholar and author, who have very kindly completed the necessary translations. Mr. Sayyid Ali Belgrami, M. A., has been so good as to edit both I hope shortly to bring out a Hindi edition for which 1 have recently been asked. W. A. GAYER. PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION. The aim of the Indian, as of every other police force, is to secure the protection of person and property. A nation looks to its army for its national protection and, simi larly, it is not only the right, but the duty of every loyal subject to look to the police force for his individual protection. On the one hand, every individual should be able to carry on his occupation without dread of interference from those who would rob him of the fruits of his industry on the other hand, in the event of any such interference, he should leave it to the police to safeguard his interests, It follows, therefore, that the members of the police force of any country are in a position of great trust f they must have a high conception of what their duties are, and must attract to their ranks men of the best stamp. One great obstacle to the reali sation of this latter aim is the far too com monly held belief, that in the course of his duty a police officer may at times have to sink some of the scruples by which MJs ii conduct in ordinary life is regulated. I have often heard it said, both by officers already in the higher grades of the subordinate police, and by native gentlemen of education, who would otherwise like to join the force, that the police department is not one in which an honourable man can serve effi ciently, and still retain his self-respect. That this belief is widely held cannot be gainsaid, and this fact makes it all the more important that the fallacies underlying it should be fully exposed, if the police department is to secure the services of true and thoughtful native gentlemen. Moreover, the existence of this belief shows that policemen must often perform their duties under entirely wrong conceptions of their true nature and object, and must attempt to carry them out by methods never contemplated by those in authority. Therefore, though doubtful of my power to do justice to the police cause, I have ventured to write in refutation of this most pernicious belief, and to show the causes which have led to the abuses that gave it birth. I have also striven to define the true Duties of the police, and to explain how they can be honestly and efficiently performed Hi The principles advocated are not new. They are based on the old and well proven truths, that the success of the police depends on the measure of confidence placed in them by the public, and that the confidence of the public in the police depends very greatly on the integrity of the individual members of the force...
