At the All India Conference of Director Generals of Police (DGPs) and Inspector Generals of Police (IGPs) in Jaipur on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to participate.Commencing on January 5, the three-day DGPs-IGPs conference is regarded as one of the premier platforms for dialogue on a variety of policing and internal security matters. In addition to speaking at the conference on January 6-7, the prime minister will be there to engage with the nation's top law enforcement officials. Making a plan for the new criminal laws' implementation is one of the primary items on the agenda this time. The Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita, 2023; the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha (Second) Sanhita, 2023; and the Bharatiya Sakshya (Second) Bill, 2023 are three important criminal reform bills that Parliament enacted during its Winter Session last month. These replace the Indian Penal Code (IPC), 1860; The Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (originally established in 1898); and the Indian Evidence Act, 187, respectively, and totally reform the nation's criminal laws. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who is leading these bills through Parliament, stated that their goal is to "indigenize laws originally enacted by the British."Artificial intelligence (AI) and how it affects policing will be a major topic of discussion at this year's DGP-IGP conference. In fact, Shah's inaugural speech on Friday centered on artificial intelligence. He emphasized that in addition to establishing uniformity to the composition, capabilities, and scale of counterterrorism measures throughout the nation, "the need for linking databases and adopting an AI-driven analytical approach for tackling emerging security challenges" was paramount.In addition to the planned conferences, the government has announced that this year there will be "free-flowing thematic discussions over breakfast, lunch, and dinner" to "provide an opportunity for senior police officials to share their views and recommendations with the PM."Thus, at the conference, the top echelons of the police hierarchy would have the opportunity to express their opinions on a variety of crucial and national security-related topics.Top IPS officials raised concerns at the annual Director General's meeting in 2022, according to a piece written by Deeptiman Tiwary earlier on the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and its delayed implementation.
