Imphal: Nongpok Sekmai police station of Thoubal district of Manipur has been selected as the best police station in the country for the year 2020.
Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, virtually presented the trophy to officer-in-charge of the police station, Inspector, Keisam Premkumar Managing, on Wednesday during the DGSP/IGSP Conference at the office of Subsidiary Intelligence Bureau, Lamphelpat, Imphal West.
PRO (Public Relations Officer) Manipur, W. Basu Singh, said that the trophy for the best police station has been given as a recognition of their professionalism, hard work, dedication and community-oriented policing by the Manipur Police.
In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to DsGP conference in Kutch, Gujarat directed to lay down parameters for grading of police stations on their performances as well as citizens' feedback, said PRO.
As such, the annual assessment of the best police station scheme was undertaken to take into consideration and recognise the 10 best police stations of the country and also the best police station in a particular state or Union Territory.
PRO W. Basu Singh said that a team of the Ministry of Home Affairs inspected the Nongpok Sekmai police station on October 10, 2020, and scrutinised various parameters of the premises.
"The achievement is possible due to sincere efforts of Officer-In-Charge, Nongpok Sekmai Police Station Inspector, a high ranking police officer and overall supervision of the chief minister of Manipur N. Biren Singh who is also Home Minister of Manipur," said Basu Singh.
The Nambol Police Station, Bishnupur district and City Police Station of Imphal West District, Manipur were also shortlisted for the Best Police Stations of Manipur state for the year 2018 and 2019 respectively by the Ministry of Home Affairs, India.
The PRO gives its word to the people of Manipur that the Manipur Police will continue to work hard with commitment and professionalism in the service of the people of Manipur in the years ahead.
