The study described the usefulness of an interactive, touch screen computer- enabled SMAART informatics platform to screen individuals at risk of NCDs including diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Sixty-Four police personnel were screened during this pilot initiative at the Police Sanchar Training Centre, Sahastradhara road, Dehradun on 6th January and 7th January 2020. Individuals were assessed for overweight/obesity, hypertension, and diabetes and made aware of how to self-manage their condition. The Swasthya Pahal program using the SMAART informatics framework can be a useful tool to enhance screening and self- management of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) among police personnel.
