Singh added that the police, along with law and order, are doing a better job in the field of emergency and different types of events like Char Dham Yatra, Kanwad Yatra, traffic control, etc. The police need to be focused on becoming a modern, sensitive and smart force. He said that, at present, the police must keep updating themselves through training. Continuous efforts should be made to maintain people’s faith in the police.
