Following the spate of crimes against women, Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Saunday asked the police to build an image that would inspire confidence among citizens and make women feel secure.

Addressing a conference of DGPs and IGs, the Prime Minister said, the role of effective policing was to make sure that "women feel safe and secure".

After listening to the presentations by different state police forces, the Prime Minister said a comprehensive list of best practices could be prepared and adopted by all the states and UTs.

This year, 11 core groups have been formed for holding brain-storming sessions on key aspects of internal and external security, like terrorism, coastal security, cyber threats, combating radicalisation and narco-terrorism.

The Prime Minister stressed the optimum use of technology to ensure proactive policing that factors-in the people's feedback.

Modi expressed his special interest for development of Northeastern states, critical for the 'Act East Policy' of his government and urged the DGPs of these states to make additional efforts to create a conducive environment for development schemes.IANS
