A police station in Jaipur has been adjudged the 'best police station in Asia' for providing smooth public services and ensuring speedy disposal of cases.
The Vidhayakpuri police station, with around one lakh people under it's jurisdiction is located in the city's southern flank and has been selected amongst the police stations of 211 cities in twenty countries like Bangladesh, Brazil, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia and Uganda.
The award, instituted by New York based Altus Global Alliance-- an organisation working for public safety and justice across the globe, will be received by the district police chief at Abuja in Nigeria at a ceremony on March 25 and 26.
"This is a motivating recognition for all the personnel. The area under this police station covers the most important roads and business streets of the city," Superintendent of Police Jaipur city (South) Jose Mohan told PTI.
The initiative is a unique global event organised by the organisation to assess the quality of services delivered in the participating police departments to identify best practices in use by police to strengthen the accountability of police to local citizens and to promote human rights, he said.
