With cyber security, war on drugs and threats from across the border among their top agenda, chiefs of all state police forces and paramilitary organisations are meeting in Delhi for three days.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and National Security Adviser Ajit Doval will address the annual meet. Around 350 top police officers of the country in the rank of the director general and inspector general will attend the conference.
Threats from Khalistani extremists, danger to the economy, cryptocurrencies, Maoist violence and northeast insurgency are other issues which may come up for discussion.
Direct interaction of top brass of the police with the head of government has resulted in a convergence of views on crucial challenges faced by the country and the emergence of doable recommendations, the official said.
In the past few years, the topics are selected after detailed discussions with the highest echelons of the police service.
Once selected, several interactions on presentations are held before committees of DGs to encourage participation and to incorporate ideas from the field and from younger officers.
As a result, all presentations are now broad-based, content-intensive and carry a set of cogent, actionable recommendations.
Decisions made in the past few conferences led to significant policy changes leading to improvement of policing in the country, including setting higher standards for effective policing in rural and urban areas, and improved methods of modern policing, based on smart parameters.
