  5. ISO as a vehicle for reform • A set of procedures that covers all key processes • Monitoring mechanisms to ensure effective implementation • Knowledge Management by documentation and quality record keeping • Sustained checking for non-conformity and corrective action • Regular external audit of the processes and the quality management system • Facilitating continual improvement QUALITY+CONSISTENCY is the mantra

  6. Why ISO in Police? • Police is generally perceived as a closed organization with processes being arbitrary, insensitive and unresponsive • Ad-hoc responsibilities and unclear roles • Police persons especially at the citizen interface level are often disinterested, de-motivated and suffer from low self esteem • ‘Inspection’ as a monitoring tool has not proved adequate

  7. Why Police Stations? • Police station is the most critical unit at the cutting edge level • Provides variety of services to citizens especially those in distress • Processes defined by police manuals, standing orders, rules etc • Conventional tool of compliance is ‘Inspection’

  8. Objectives of ISO 9001:2000 Police Stations • To ensure transparency in the functioning of the police stations • To enhance accountability of the police personnel deployed in police stations • To improve efficiency of the service delivery to the citizens specially those in distress

Phased Approach • Vidhyak Puri police station in Jaipur City was the first to initiate the process (2005) • BVQI (now BV) was chosen as the auditing/ certifying agency for its impeccable reputation • It was then extended to cover at least one police station in each district • In total, 41 police stations have obtained ISO 9001:2000
