Union minister of state for home, Nityanand Rai on Sunday said the central government is making efforts to increase the number of women personnel in police forces across the country.
Addressing the inaugural session of National Conference of Women Police (NCWP) at Raj Bhavan here, Rai said that the participation of women in the police across the country is increasing and the women are doing better in all the fields.
The main focus of this conference is to address various gender specific issues related to women in police, and to further develop leadership quality among women, he added.
