Role of Superintendent of Police :for RAS/RTS Mains examination updated syllabus


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 a policeman 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 organisation 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 organisation.


The administration of the Police throughout a district or part thereof shall be fully vested in the superintendent of Police. His work is of varied nature and in doing it, he has the following essential roles :-

  • to keep the district peaceful and the public satisfied with the security afforded to persons and property;
  • to keep the force under control, in good discipline, well-trained, efficient and contented;
  • to maintain cordial relations with the magistracy and other officials and non-officials;
  •  to ensure that the transport, arms and ammunition, stores and buildings belonging to the department are maintained in good condition;
