The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) selects the best-performing police stations across the country every year, to incentivize more effective functioning and bring healthy competition.
The selection is done in accordance with the directions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with the directions of the Directors General of Police during the 2015 Conference in Kutch, Gujarat.
The Prime Minister had directed that parameters should be laid down for grading police stations and assessing their performance based on feedback.
This year’s survey for the best police stations was conducted under challenging circumstances by the MHA.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the police stations short-listed are located in small towns and rural areas.
The objective was to rank the top 10 police stations out of 16,671 police stations in the country through data analysis, direct observation and public feedback.
The ranking process commenced with shortlisting of the best performing Police Stations, in each State on the basis of addressing: –
- Property offence
- Crime against women
- Crime against weaker sections
- Missing persons, unidentified found person and unidentified dead bodies
