Police are one of the most ubiquitous organisations of the society. The Policemen therefore, happen to be the most visible representatives of the Government. In an hour of need, Danger, Crisis and Difficulty, when a citizen does not know, what to do and whom to approach, the Police Station and the Policemen happen to be the most appropriate and approachable unit and person for him. The Police are expected to be the most accessible, interactive and dynamic organization of any society. Their roles, functions and duties in the society are natural to be varied and multifarious on the one hand; and complicated, knotty and complex on the other. Broadly speaking the twin roles, which the Police are expected to play in a society are maintenance of law and maintenance of order. However, the ramifications of these two duties are numerous, which result in making a large inventory of duties, functions, powers, roles and responsibilities of the Police Organization.
