Lucknow: From November 19 to 21, the Police Headquarters in Lucknow will host the first all-India meeting of Directors General of Police (DGP) and Inspectors General (IG). Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be the chief guest, with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval also attending the three-day event. The Intelligence Bureau is in charge of organising the event (IB).
Shah will be the guest of honour on the inaugural day, according to official sources, and will hand out medals. On November 20 and 21, the Prime Minister will attend the meeting and, in addition to speaking, will award medals. The meeting will be attended by around 80 DGPs and IGs from states and other forces. The meeting will address key security issues such as left-wing extremism, terrorism, cybercrime, crime against women, the Covid-19 pandemic, and other challenges.
Each state's DGP will give a presentation, and many IG committees will have discussions on relevant themes. Meanwhile, the event is being prepared as if it were a battle. Security will be provided by CCTV cameras and a special team of roughly 2,000 cops drawn from the Lucknow police commissionerate. Drones with night vision will also be used.
