    This article critically analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), as the prime agency of the Government of India, attending to manifold matters of internal security. Many incidents, including classic achievements as well as downsides are presented here. The article highlights the need for a functional audit, urgency in professionalising the personnel, harnessing human potential in the best manner and the role of research and development. Another pertinent aspect brought out is a paradigm shift in the selection of leadership, with justification and the process involved in it. The intimate and intricate in-house aspects of the force have also been covered cogently.
