Launches Indian Police at Your Call app

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for a qualitative change in the police force through a collective training effort. He said technology and human interface are both important for the police force to keep progressing. He emphasised the importance of foot patrolling and constabulary intelligence.

Addressing the conference of DGPs at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy here on Saturday, he said development of soft skills was essential. It should become a part of the training drill. “Aspects such as human psychology and behavioural psychology should be vital parts of training,” said.

The Prime Minister launched a mobile app – Indian Police at Your Call.

Recalling the November 26 terror strike in Mumbai, he recounted the sacrifices of the police personnel. He also recalled the martyrdom of over 33,000 police personnel over years, a statement from Press Information Bureau said.

The Prime Minister said that this annual conference underwent a transformation in the way it was conducted. “This has become a platform for sharing experiences, which leads to good inputs for policy planning,” he said.

He presented the President’s Police Medals for “distinguished service” to officers of the Intelligence Bureau. Earlier in the day, he laid a wreath at the Martyrs Column at the Academy.
