The first such Conference post Independence was inaugurate0d by the first Home Minister of the country, Sardar Ballabh Bhai Patel on January 12, 1950. Initially, it was a biennial event, but after 1973, it became an annual meeting for the Heads of Police Organisations of the States/Union Territories and Central Police Organizations.
The objectives of the Conference are to provide an interactive platform for senior police professionals and security administrators in the country to discuss and debate diverse national security-related issues, as also the various operational, infrastructural and welfare-related problems faced by the police. Its deliberations include formulation and sharing of professional practices and processes in tackling challenges relating to crime control and law and order management besides internal security threats such as terrorism, insurgency, left wing extremism, espionage and organised crime. The Conference offers opportunities for generation and exchange of new ideas on capacity building for the police in respect of manpower, training, logistics and advanced technology.
