SHILLONG, July 12 - Meghalaya Director General of Police, SB Singh today said that insurgency, both at the eastern and western part of the country, has drastically reduced, but the security forces must remain alert and cannot lower its guards.

Singh, who is scheduled to retire at the end of this month, said, there has been a sea-change in the law and order scenario in the Northeastern region and Meghalaya police has been constantly coordinating with other police forces of NE and the country.

Speaking about Islamic radical forces, Singh did acknowledge that there are inputs of such elements setting up their bases, but didn�t elaborate. �There are operational aspects involved to such issues and therefore I would not like to comment�but we are coordinating with States like Assam on these issues,� he said.

Expressing happiness with the manner in which Meghalaya police has maintained the law and order situation in the State, Singh said, �Despite the limitations everyone has performed exceedingly well in discharging their duties. I am pretty much satisfied with my tenure and all the personnel in Meghalaya police.�

Touching on some areas in which Meghalaya police could improve, Singh said, emphasis must be on scientific investigation and cyber skills. He said that police stations also need to be strengthened.

Meghalaya has a rudimentary forensic laboratory and is in dire need of experts to man the lab. There has been constant effort to upgrade the forensic department, but so far the process has been slow.

On the other hand, there is also need of IT professionals to man the cyber wing of the department. The State Government has put particular emphasis on the cyber wing and efforts are on to get in more professionals in this important wing of the police force.
