JAIPUR: The 58th three-day Director General-Inspector General of Police (DG-IG) Conference was inaugurated by Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday.

He urged police officers to familiarize themselves with the new laws and effectively implement them at the police station level. The new education policy and three new laws are notable accomplishments. Medals were awarded to Central IB officers, while trophies were given to the top three police stations in the country.

Shah arrived at the airport in the afternoon and proceeded directly to attend the conference held at Rajasthan International Center (RIC). He paid tribute to martyrs who sacrificed their lives for national security. The new laws have been developed after five years of dedication and adherence to justice rather than punishment as a focal point.

Shah emphasized training from SHO level to Director General of Police level, along with technological advancements from police station level up to headquarters for successful implementation of these laws. He highlighted an overall improvement in security across Jammu & Kashmir, North-East, and areas affected by Left Wing Extremism.

The conference has evolved into a think tank that aids decision-making and formulation of security strategies aligned with Prime Minister’s vision for India’s development by 2047. DG-IGs, heads of central police organizations, senior state police officers, and over 500 officers nationwide participated either in person or via video conferencing.

Critical topics discussed include border security, cyber-threats, radicalization issues, fraudulent issuance of identity documents, and threats arising from AI technology.
