The top three police stations in India for 2018 are Kalu (Bikaner, Rajasthan), Campbell Bay ( Andaman & Nicobar Islands) and Farakka (Murshidabad, West Bengal).

Here is the list of top 10 performing police stations across the country, as per the position secured:

The Periakulam police station has been put on the eight spot in the top 10 list. Theni district police unit is yet to receive official communication. However, appreciation poured in from higher officials for the notable achievement. Theni District Superintendent of Police V Baskaran reportedly said that the award is a motivation for the police stations situated in rural areas.

The Home Minister addressed the Inaugural Session of the DGPs or IGPs Conference in Gujarat. It must be noted that no police station from Gujarat made it to the top 10 list. Reports stated that the list was prepared by the Intelligence Bureau (IB) after careful scrutiny of the work done by the police stations to judge the best and deserving ones in the country. The IB collected data from state agencies to judge the best-performing police stations before filtering and picking the top 10 in the country.
