New Delhi, Oct 23 (IANS): The annual meet of all Director Generals of Police (DGPs) and Inspector Generals of Police (IGPs) will be held at Lucknow from November 20-22, the officials said.

Security of Jammu and Kashmir, cyber terrorism, the Pakistan-sponsored militancy in Jammu and Kashmir, Maoist issue and the new emerging threats are the key issues which are likely to be discussed in this meeting, the sources in the security set up said.
During the last year's conference held virtually, the role of police during the Covid-19 pandemic was discussed and the discussion was also held in detail on increasing the knowledge and capabilities of the police to handle natural disasters and the state police chiefs shared their experiences in handling the pandemic and how the police have helped distressed people and migrant workers during the nationwide lockdown.
The DGPs and IGPs conference is an annual affair where senior police officials of the states and the Centre meet and discuss issues of importance.
Earlier, this annual event used to be organized in Delhi but from 2014 onwards, the Modi government has been organising it outside the national capital.
