♦ The Delhi Police were given points for their public sensitivity, decent behaviour, accessibility, accountability, and stringent conduct.
♦ The Delhi Police Force was placed fifth in terms of technology usage and tenth in terms of smart policing.
♦ On the Smart Policing List, states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, and Nagaland rated the lowest.
♦ In terms of responsible policing, public faith in the police, and integrity and corruption-free service, Bihar came in worst.
♦ IPF conducted the study to analyse residents’ impressions and gauge the impact of Prime Minister Modi’s smart policing project, which was introduced in 2014 during a conference in Guwahati.
