Planning is very crucial for getting durable results. West Bengal Police lay special emphasis on moving with a forward looking approach aided by Criminal Investigation Department to tackle the current trend of crime in accordance with rapid technological advancement. Criminals are trying to utilise modern technological developments to their advantage but West Bengal Police stands rm while dealing with these new issues and maintain steady march to meet the growing challenges in the present day society. It carries on its positive work in tackling different crimes including cyber and economic offences which are surfacing in recent times. Steps have been initiated to ensure that things move normally even with challenges from new technologies which cause concern.

West Bengal Police successfully handled the Gangasagar Mela this year on Sagar Island in which lakhs of pilgrims from various parts of the country congregated on the day of auspicious Makar Sankranti to take a holy dip. It was a great responsibility which West Bengal Police accomplished with credit. Police is being successful in developing awareness against human trafcking and child marriage. It is indeed a great job that they are exposing heinous crimes. Surveillance against narcotics is also paying off well. Missing Persons Bureau also does a commendable job in tracing several missing persons and reuniting them with their families.

State police encourages its personnel to carry on their passion for sports. First All India Police Judo Cluster Championship was organised this January by the state police. This had contributed in boosting their determination and was a step towards fullling their ambitions. It was also a pleasant moment for West Bengal Police for the achievement of three personnel who won medals.

West Bengal Police is aware of its responsibilities and will continue to extend all possible security cover for the citizens to ensure that everybody can live freely and peacefully. The police personnel are well trained in handling any unusual situation whatever they may encounter.
