About Bureau of Police Research & Development:

The Bureau of Police Research & Development (BPR&D) was set up in 1970 to identify the needs and problems of the police in the country, undertake research projects and studies, and suggest modalities to overcome problems and challenges and meet the needs and requirements of the police. It was also
mandated to keep abreast of the latest developments in the fields of science and technology, both in India and abroad, with a view to promoting the use of appropriate technology in police work.

Over the years, the BPR&D has also been entrusted with the responsibility of monitoring the training needs and quality of training in the States and Central Police Organisations, and providing assistance for the same, as also assisting the States in modernization of the State Police Forces and Correctional Administration. In the process, the BPR&D has also been tasked to assist the Ministry of Home Affairs and the CPFs, etc., in the development of Standards, Quality Requirements (QRs), etc., with respect to various types of equipments and items pertaining to infrastructure. More recently, the BPR&D has also been entrusted with the responsibility of anchoring and coordinating the work of the National Police Mission .

Despite the significant growth and expansion in the functions and responsibilities of the BPR&D over the years and the growing complexities and challenges that confront the police, calling for the building up of the
corresponding capabilities, there has not been commensurate growth in the resources, both human and financial, as also infrastructure support, for the activities of the BPR&D. Keeping this in view, for the first time, the BPR&D has been brought out under the Plan, and an outlay of Rs. 150 crores has been provided during the 11th Five Year Plan, and 72 additional posts have been sanctioned
