The Union Home Ministry has decided to establish a model police station in each state and has asked the state governments to submit their proposal by January 31, 2015.
The Prime Minister had said at a meeting in Guwahati last month that he wanted a force which takes care of the law and order in an efficient and SMART manner.
He had said, “By ‘SMART’ policing, I mean S for strict but sensitive, M for modern and mobile, A for alert and accountable, R for reliable and responsive and T for techno-savvy and trained”.
Keeping this in mind, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has decided to set up one model SMART police station in each state and asked the state governments to submit their proposal by January 31, 2015.
The Union Home Ministry has decided to allocate funds for SMART police stations shortly, an official statement said.
