I always believe that the efficacy of any police force lies in its relationship and engagement with the local community," he said addressing a national conclave on community policing in the Kerala capital.
Singh also pitched for a nationwide action plan for community policing, saying there was an urgent need to come up with a technical architecture connecting local police stations with the local community.
