JAIPUR: More than 100 senior police officers, scientists, sociologists and forensic science and medico-legal experts will attend the 38th All India Police Science Congress beginning here on Tuesday. The three-day congress is being organised in Jaipur after a gap of 40 years.

A Rajasthan Police spokesperson said here on Sunday that the participants would be drawn mainly from the Central security and paramilitary forces, police departments of States and Union Territories and various organisations.

The inaugural and other technical sessions will be held at Rajasthan Police Academy’s auditorium in Nehru Nagar here.

The spokesperson said Jaipur had earlier hosted the congress in 1968.

The theme of the congress will revolve around India’s position vis-À-vis developed countries in the application of modern technology for prevention and investigation of crimes as well as the scenario likely to evolve by 2020. As many as 18 papers will be presented to highlight various aspects of the theme.

The spokesperson said the security forces would seriously consider for implementation the recommendations made by subject experts during the event.

An exhibition on security products and techniques, coinciding with the congress, will be organised at B.M. Birla Auditorium here to showcase the latest equipment used for providing security cover to banks, hospitals, commercial complexes, offices, high-rise buildings and houses.
