The language problem
The Times of India reports:
Forget crime, police officers have a new problem on their hand. They are looking high and low in the department for English-speaking cops. They are a must in cosmopolitan Bangalore.Apparently the department is planning to "organise English-speaking and writing classes for the constabulary" and train them in using computers. So five years from now if you find that a lot of call-center employees in Banaglore are former policemen, you'll know what caused it.
With police stations and control room logging on to computers, there is a great demand for 'English' constables, head constables, assistant sub-inspectors and SIs to handle computers and file FIRs.
