The annual conference of chief executives and inspectors general of police across India will be held in Lucknow from Nov. 19-21, officials said. The conference will bring together Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.


The highest police conference will see discussions on the country’s internal security, including the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and if or how this relates to developments in Afghanistan, according to the sources. The situation in the areas affected by Naxal will also be discussed.

We learn that there will also be discussions on cyberterrorism, the Chinese cyber threat, youth radicalization and the impact of extremism in neighboring Pakistan and Bangladesh.

At first, sources suggested that there would likely be a discussion about the impact of climate change on the security situation in the Indian states. For example, the Republic of Maldives and the threat of climate change are likely to be discussed there. If sea levels rise dramatically in the Maldives, India could face a refugee crisis.

Additionally, sources said Covid warriors and police forces who worked during the pandemic will likely be praised at the conference.

An overview of the internal security situation in the country will be presented to Prime Minister Modi and Amit Shah and discussions will take place on how to improve the overall security scenario. State-specific challenges can be discussed.


About 250 officers with the rank of Director General of Police (DGP) and Inspector General of Police from all states, Union Territories and central government will participate in the meeting, which is hosted by the Intelligence Bureau.

While DGPs will attend the conference in person, some officers will join by video conference.
