By TOG News Service
Mar 12, 2018

 TOG News Service, NEW DELHI, MAR 12, 2018: THE Government today approved a proposal to create a 'Union Home Minister's Medal for Excellence in Police Investigation', so as to promote high professional standards of investigation of crime by the police forces in the States and Union Territories. In fact, officers of central investigating agencies in India would also be eligible to receive this medal. With the aim of improving investigations being done at the grassroots level, officers from the rank of Sub-Inspector to Superintendent of Police are eligible to receive this medal.


Based on the average crime data for the last three years, a total of 162 medals would be awarded every year. Out of these, 137 will be for the States and Union Territories, and 25 would be awarded to officers in the Central investigating agencies, such as the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Narcotic Control Bureau (NCB). Further, the distribution of medals among the States and Union Territories would be on the basis of average of crimes registered by them under the Indian Penal Code, and the crime data published by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) for the years 2013, 2014 & 2015. The distribution of medals would be reviewed after every three years based on the average crime data. Notably, there would be quota of medals for Women Investigators.

When awarding any medal, nominations from States, Union Territories & Central Investigating Agencies would be received, based on recommendations from a State-level Committee headed by ADG rank officer. These nominations would be processed by a screening committee and approved by a sanctioning committee in MHA. The names of awardees would be declared on August 15 every year. A certificate signed by Union Home Minister along with a medal would be awarded to each winner and their names shall be published in the Gazette of India.
