“While we should further leverage technological solutions like biometrics, there is also a need to further strengthen traditional policing mechanisms like foot patrols, etc,” Modi said.
According to PM Modi, while there was an immediate need to adapt to new technologies including biometrics, there is also a need to further strengthen traditional policing mechanisms like foot patrols.
PM Modi also recommended repealing obsolete criminal laws and building standards for police organisations across states. He said that there was a need to look into prison reforms to improve jail management. Modi further discussed strengthening the border as well as coastal security by organising frequent visits by officials.
PM Modi suggested replicating the model of the DGPs and IGs conference at the state and district levels for discussing emerging challenges and evolving best practices among their teams.

Union home minister, ministers for state for home, National Security Advisor, Union home secretary, DGsP/IGsP of States/UTs and Heads of the Central Police Organisations/Central Armed Police Forces participated in the two day event organised by the Union government.
