Abstract
This research was conducted because of the personal interest and motivation of the researcher with a vision to improve the socio-economic conditions of the security agencies/ departments specially the trainees of the Police department. An initiative was under taken to study the socio-economic problems of trainee police personnel, Sindh. It is an exploratory research which was conducted in all the two Police Training Colleges, Saeedabad and Shahdadpur, Sindh. A sample was drawn by the method of random sampling. Data was collected from 300 respondents through interview schedule. These groups were studied equally because their socio-economic status and problems were similar.

Little attention has been paid to the socio-economic problems of police force. But so far, however no attempt appears to have been made toward analyzing the problem in a systematic and comparative context as much as no standard empirical study to date have been attempted to assess the problem. There have been written only some articles based on individual observation. As far as the researcher's humble knowledge goes, the present study is the first step in Pakistan to analyze the problem. That prevailing situation provides the rationale for the present study.

Through this study it was found that the under-researched trainee police personnel were facing several vital socio-economic tribulations such as prolonged duty hours, lack of medical facilities and insufficient income etc.

The compendium of this research is that although the trainee police personnel have to suffer several problems but it is fact that they will have to redress public problems, maintain law and order, investigate and prosecute cases etc. But a little effort has been ever made in the past to redress the genuine problems of police. It was, therefore, imperative that something should be done for police force.

This research thesis consists on five chapters which are in a few words classified as: Chapter 1 denotes introduction of the research under different sociological perspectives. Chapter 2 consists of the theoretical frame work and review of the related literature including books, researches and reports etc. Chapter 3 gives the details of the methodological frame work of the research. Chapter 4 contains the data in simple tables as well as in contingency tables along with analysis of variables applying different statistical tests like chi-square and coefficient of correlations. Chapter 5 includes summary, conclusions and recommendation. This chapter provides a complete compendium of this research.
