Ancient India was an instrument under the kings. They were ministers or important individuals who were vested with police functions. During Moghul period there was some kind of organized patterns set in to the police systems. However there were glaring differences between systems of policing from one state to another. AP Police History Some areas of Andhra Pradesh was for a long time under the Vijayanagar dynasty that was founded by Sri Krishnadevaraya. It was the Madras Act XXIV of 1859 that marked the beginning of the Madras police and shortly later, the Police Act of 1861 instituted the system of police which forms the foundation of modern day police in India. The ‘ceded’ areas of Andhra, as they were popularly known, continued as part of Madras police and it was only in October1953 after the birth of a separate Andhra State, that the Andhra police gained individual existence. Finally with the formation of Andhra State on the 1 November 1956 integrating the Telugu speaking areas the modern day Andhra Pradesh Police came in to existence. The Police Act 1861 instituted the system of policing which is in force in India today. It is Act 5 that regulates the organization, recruitment and discipline of the Indian police. With the induction of police code in 1865 and the creation of the post of Inspector General of Police, there was marked improvement in the law and order scenario in the country. Andhra Pradesh Bifurcation Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act, 2014, is an Act of Indian parliament proclaiming the bifurcation of the Andhra Pradesh State in to two states, Telengana and the residuary Andhra Pradesh.
