The senior police officials gave a presentation on the pendency of crimes that has come down from 95,000 in 2021 to 55,000 in 2022. They also discussed filing chargesheets for over 97% of child marriage cases, dropping petty cases under investigation, lowering conviction rates in POSCO and NDPS cases, reducing crime against women, and bringing down road accidents through geo-tagging of accident-prone areas during peak hours and installation of CCTVs in police stations.
