“87 per cent of the women believe that they feel more safer at present while 82 per cent say that crime against senior citizens has come down drastically. 68 per cent of the responders feel that they are more safer at night due to the alertness shown by the police while 70 per cent of the businessmen claim that they feel more secure in the past two and a half years. 91 per cent of the pilgrims who visited the Kumbh mela appreciated the alertness and security arrangements made by the policemen. The faith shown by people on the police is highly motivating,” Singh said.

We have also caught police officials in trap cases. In many blind cases, UP police has done remarkable investigation and our cops have become more tech-savy,” claimed the DGP.
