Atleast in Bengaluru there is now a formal liaison unit setup between the City Police and the Military establishment. Earlier there were instances of Army and the Police going bersek and chasing each other all because of ego issues at both sides. With the liaison unit these incidents have pretty much stopped, and the unit also helps in other stuff like sharing intelligence, providing VIP security etc. etc.

If my understanding is correct, IPS has such a scheme. An IPS chap has to work in the levels of Constable,HC, SI etc. This is to basically learn what these grass-root level people actually do and how it is done.

Well put. And at these levels financial aspects also become important, because at the end of the day the FinMin Babus and MoD Babus also need to prepare some kind of balance sheet. For them the criteria of "important" may be totally different from the criteria used by the defence service officer. May be some thing like an me reporting a "critical issue" of my mobile phone being stolen to a Police officer who has to look into more critical issues like a couple of homicides, traffic accidents etc .
