Concepts like Police Syndrome, Conceptual Literacy, Person Steered Initiatives (PSI), Precision Policing Technique (PPT), Tracking Participation Footprint (TPF), Image Dating or Image Mapping (ID/IM), intuitive approach, and many others are explained and discussed. The author uses case studies to elucidate the practical applicability of these concepts.
The author negotiates with the idea of allowing civilian participation to become one of the legitimate means of checking police excesses. He argues that compliance of law must go hand in hand with protecting basic rights of people. Unless this is done, the foundation of liberal democratic society is betrayed.
