Nongpok Sekmai police station in Thoubal district of Manipur has been selected as the best police station in the country for the year 2020.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah virtually presented the trophy to officer incharge of the police station, Inspector Keisam Premkumar Mangang, on Wednesday during the DGSP/IGSP Conference at the office of Subsidiary Intelligence Bureau, Lamphelpat, Imphal West.

W. Basu Singh, PRO Manipur Police said that the trophy for the best police station has been given as a recognition of the professionalism, hard work, dedication and community oriented policing by the Manipur Police.

In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address to DsGP conference in Kutch, Gujarat directed to lay down parameters for grading of police stations on their performances as well as citizens’ feedback, said the PRO.
