Aarti A. Tayde
Juvenile Justice Act 2000 is the only beneficial legislation for the children in India, but there are various aspects of it in terms of its implementation; such as the machineries, the professionals involved in it, which play an important role in its implementation. The main objective is to provide a protective umbrella for all children in difficult circumstances. The Act covers all types of children below the age of 18 years, and further support to children till the age of 21 years. Through this Act, we consolidate and amend the law relating to juveniles in conflict with law and children in need of care and protection, by providing for proper care, protection and treatment by catering to their development needs, and by adopting a child-friendly approach in the adjudication and disposition of matters in the best interest of children and for their ultimate rehabilitation and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. Therefore the training of the police personnel becomes very important. This paper is an effort to bring about the role of police in protection of child and the hurdles faced by them and to draw out some recommendation to find a solution to the problems in the administration of child laws.
