New Delhi: Security-related Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for cities like Delhi should be integrated in the safety measures contained in the building bye laws itself, Minister of State for Home Ajay Maken said on Tuesday.

This would ensure an in-built security mechanism for huge buildings like malls etc, he said during a deliberation with the top brass of Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) here.

Maken also suggested that good work done in a state could be replicated by another state in this regard.

On the micro missions under the National Police Mission, he said that states needed to be allocated adequate resources to ensure effective implementation of the Mission.

The Minister suggested that police reforms in the states could be linked to funding from the Centre so as to expedite the pace of reforms.

Referring to several Chief Ministers' demand for extending the time-frame for police reforms, he said that the set of reforms could be prioritised as this would ensure better and quicker implementation.

He was apprised about the initiatives undertaken by BPRD in the recent past and the proposals/schemes underway.

DG, BPRD, Prasun Mukherjee also spoke on the occasion.
