The annual ranking of Police Stations recognizes the hard work of police personnel, encourages police forces and also provides 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 which works as a constant guide for improvements, a PIB report said.

The selection is in accordance with the directions of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, while addressing the Directors General of Police during the 2015 Conference in Kutch, Gujarat. The Prime Minister had directed that parameters should be laid down for grading police stations and assessing their performance based on feedback.

The objective was to rank the top 10 Police Stations out of 16,671 Police Stations 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, Missing persons, unidentified found person and unidentified dead bodies. The last parameter has 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.

In the final stage, 19 parameters were identified to evaluate the standards of service delivery and identify techniques of improvement in policing, constituting 80 percent of weightage in overall scoring. The balance 20 percent was based on infrastructure of the police station and approachability of personnel and feedback of citizens. All States of the Union participated in this year’s survey with full co-operation to complete the survey during the pandemic.
