Ministry of Home Affairs has introduced a system for the ranking of police station, in which the ranking is done in two stages. In the first stage 3 police stations from States having more than 750 police stations, 2 each from all other States and Delhi and 1 each from Union Territories are selected from more than 15,000 Police Stations in the country on the basis of rate of conviction in cases of crimes against women, crimes against SCs/STs and property offences.
In the second stage, the performance is measured on the basis of parameters like crime prevention and proactive measures, disposal of cases, maintenance of public order, infrastructure assessment and citizens feedback. The surveying teams have made making personal visits to the selected police stations for this purpose.
As per the guidelines, two sets of awards are provided, one for the top 3 best police stations in the country and another for the best police station in each State/Union Territory. In the last DsGP/IsGP Conference held in December 2018 at Kevadiya, Gujarat, the best 3 police stations in the country were awarded Shields. Certificates have been given to the top police stations of each state/UT.
