Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Urbanization poses several challenges before service delivery systems in almost every society. In a democratic society like India, a service delivery system like policing assumes even greater importance. From understanding Delhi as a unique metropolis, the patterns of policing in the 'seven cities of Delhi', and infrastructure constraints and related crime to terrorism, crime against women and juveniles, technology and policing, and the typology of criminals--this book looks at the evolution of Delhi over the years and the attendant changes. Focusing on the challenges posed by over-urbanization, this volume discusses the changes brought about in policing in Delhi over the years to counter the problems of crime, law and order, traffic and terrorism, among other issues. The appendices, including basic data sheet for the nine districts of Delhi and various charts and maps, provide a wealth of additional information.
