13 What needs to be done Fill up gaps in the sanctioned and available strengths of the police force at the level of the Investigating Officers and in the Police Control Room (100/103 helpline). Separate Investigation function from Law and Order duty. Home ministry needs to improve coordination between the police investigating officers and public prosecutors. Police should take steps to reach out to citizens to address any apprehensions about police, law & order. Using regional language mediums, local cable channels can be helpful. Strengthen and where necessary create infrastructure for continuous training, forensic labs, crime mapping and crime forecasting. 13
