In the past, the Nagpur Police has been a part of various joint activities that promote awareness among the youth of Nagpur on prevention of crime against women and children, including trafficking. The recent decline of around 5% drop in the cases of these crimes is being seen as the testimony to that commitment and a step in the right direction.
