A first-of-its-kind, this book proposes a marketing plan for the police, using the conventional framework of marketing management. While there is considerable discussion and criticism of the way the police force functions in India, no comprehensive alternative model has been proposed to implement the New Police Management (NPM) approach in the force's operations. In fact, the necessity for overhauling the police system is strongly felt all over the world in the light of the recent international security lapses. The framework that this book suggests comprises current situation analysis, SWOT analysis, STP analysis and the 8 Ps. Policing: Reinvention Strategies in a Marketing Framework combines marketing principles with the empirical knowledge of police operations to suggest improvements in the Indian police force. It uses the marketing motto of 'keeping the customer at the centre' as key to finding solutions to the issues that the police face in their everyday operations. In addition, it carries case studies related to police operations from across the world and suggests ways of adapting the strategies used in these to the Indian context. In doing so, the book offers valuable inputs for police academies, public administration, public policy, and state security commissions, as it not only analyses the current situation in the police force, but also draws a clear and practicable roadmap to revamp it.

Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.
