Based on the feedback got by us from many sections of the society we enumerate herein in gist form as to what the “AAM AADMI” expects of all Police Officers/ Personnel. We trust that this will help the Police Force in upgrading their much tarnished image in the eyes of the public at large besides helping the Police Force in improving their performance.

Integrity
All Police Personnel should be committed and loyal to the vision, values and goals of the organisation.


Professionalism
All Police Personnel should be aware of the impact of their behaviour at all times. They should maintain self-control, be resilient and present a professional image. They should uphold the rule of law and maintain the guidelines, standards, policies and procedures set by the organisation.

Respect
All Police Personnel should understand that their role is to acknowledge and respond to our diverse society and to serve all people with dignity. In doing so they recognise the rights, values and freedom of all people. They should recognise that by being responsive they are promoting good police practice.

Accountability for Performance
All Police Officers should take personal responsibility for achieving personal and team goals and targets. They should set clear objectives and be committed to their work. They should plan, prioritise and use their time and energy effectively to achieve desired outcomes. They should promote accountability in others and take responsibility for their own actions and decisions.

Building Partnerships
All Police Officers should work co-operatively with others to build partnerships and achieve desired outcomes. They should actively network, create and maintain relationships that inspire trust amongst all in order to share information and co-ordinate action effectively.

Challenging for Continuous Improvement
All Police Officers should be flexible and responsive to the changing needs of the community and organisation. They should constantly seek improvement to ensure effective and efficient service delivery. They should demonstrate the ability to adapt to new situations and promote and encourage initiatives for personal and organisational improvement.

Exercising Judgement
All Police Officers should seek out and make full use of all available information and experience to resolve a situation. They should analyse the options and associated risks while considering possible solutions within time constraints. Once the analysis has been completed, they should make sound decisions or recommendations.

Influential Leadership

All Police Officers should communicate a vision, provide direction, coordinate and develop individuals and teams. They should inspire and motivate others through personal example, while enabling colleagues to maximise potential. They should use a combination of authority and influence at all levels of the organisation.

Strategic Development
All Police Officers should think strategically when planning for the future. They should develop national, district or service centre strategy that determines business and operational planning and policy.

A simple definition of leadership is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal.

Put even more simply, the leader is the inspiration and director of the action. He or she is the person in the group that possesses the combination of personality and skills that makes others want to follow his or her directions in the right spirit.
