Prime Minister Modi Suggests Setup High-Power Police Technology Mission

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called for constituting a HighPower Police Technology Mission, under the leadership of Union home minister Amit Shah, to adopt future technologies for grass-roots policing requirements.

Addressing the valedictory session of the annual DGP/IGP conference in Lucknow, the PM called for an analysis of all police-related incidents and developing case studies to make it an institutionalised learning mechanism and further suggested the development of interoperable technologies which would benefit police forces across the country.

He also hailed the hybrid format of the conference as it allowed a free flow of information between various ranks, according to a release by the Prime Minister’s Office.

Modi also suggested the development of interoperable technologies to benefit police forces across the country. Citing the importance of technology in the lives of the general public, Modi gave examples of CoWIN, GeM and UPI.

He also appreciated the positive change in police attitude towards the general public, particularly post-pandemic, and suggested positive use of drone technology for the benefit of people.

PM Modi stressed reviewing the SMART Policing concept introduced in 2014 and suggested the development of a road map for its continuous transformation and institutionalization. To tackle some of the routine challenges faced by police, he urged to involve highly qualified youth to look for technological solutions through hackathons.

In the run-up to the Conference, various core groups of DGsP were formed for holding discussions on key aspects of national security such as prison reforms, terrorism, Left Wing Extremism, cyber-crimes, narcotics trafficking, foreign funding of NGOs, drone-related matters, development of border villages, etc.
