Police stations of three North-eastern States made it to the top 10 police stations India for 2020 announced by Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), with Thoubal district police station of Manipur leading the table with number one position.

According to a PIB release, Arunachal Pradesh’s Changlang and Sikkim’s East District bagged the third and seventh positions respectively. Other police stations that made it into the top 10 list included Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Uttar Pradesh, Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Telangana (see table). Government of India selects best performing police stations across the country every year to incentivize more effective functioning of police stations and bring healthy competition among them. This is in accordance with the directions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing director generals of police during the 2015 conference in Kutch, Gujarat.  This year’s survey for best police stations was conducted under challenging circumstances by MHA as it was difficult to access police stations located in remote areas during COVID-19 pandemic due to various restrictions on movement. Consequently, the survey was conducted in accordance with the guidelines of the government.

The objective was to rank the top 10 police stations out of the 16,671 in the country through data analysis, direct observation and public feedback. The ranking process commenced with shortlisting of the best performing police stations in each State on the basis of addressing property offence, crime against women, crime against weaker sections and missing persons, unidentified found person and unidentified dead bodies, with the last parameter having been introduced this year. The number of police stations selected initially from each State comprised of three from each State with more than 750 police stations, two from all other States and Delhi and one from each Union Territory.  

Altogether 75 police stations were selected for next stage of the ranking process.

In the final stage, 19 parameters were identified to evaluate the standards of service delivery and identify techniques of improvement in policing. Citizens who were approached for feedback included 4,056 respondents, covering approximately 60 people at each shortlisted location.

The annual ranking of police stations recognizes the hard work of police personnel and encourages them, besides providing a feedback on many aspects of policing in the country for future guidance. It also provides a picture of the state of physical infrastructure, resources and deficiencies at the level of police stations. The annual exercise of ranking of police stations works as a constant guide for improvements.
