LUC­KNOW: Three ad­di­tional in­spec­tors will be posted at 414 po­lice sta­tions across the state un­der the su­per­vi­sion of a main in­spec­tor in charge. The ad­di­tional in­spec­tors’ work will be di­vided un­der three ma­jor heads: law and or­der, crime and ad­min­is­tra­tion, while the se­nior most in­spec­tor will be the in charge of the po­lice sta­tion.

In a cir­cu­lar dated June 13, 2018, di­rec­tor gen­eral of po­lice (DGP) OP Singh had is­sued these or­ders to dis­trict po­lice chiefs to en­force it at all 414 po­lice sta­tions of cir­cle of­fice head­quar­ters out of 1568 po­lice sta­tions across the state. In Luc­know, there are 14 po­lice cir­cles, in­clud­ing Hazrat­ganj, Alam­bagh, Saro­jin­i­na­gar, Cantt, Gomti Na­gar, Ghazipur, Ma­hana­gar, Ali­ganj, Chowk, Qais­erbagh, Bazarkhala, Mali­a­habad, Bak­shi Ka Talab and Mo­han­la­ganj where this new con­cept will be in­tro­duced.

The DGP said the ar­range­ment was be­ing made to im­prove po­lice work­ing and lower work pres­sure on per­son­nel. He said it would also help in speedy in­ves­ti­ga­tion, ef­fec­tive en­force­ment of gov­ern­ment or­ders and main­tain­ing law and or­der, apart from bring­ing down the crime graph.

The DGP cir­cu­lar asks the dis­tricts po­lice chiefs to com­ply with the or­der as early as pos­si­ble. The or­ders reads that it must be en­sured while post­ing ad­di­tional in­spec­tors that the in­spec­tor, who is se­nior among all, shall be made the in charge of the po­lice sta­tion.

“In case of short­age of in­spec­tors, the ad­di­tional work should be as­signed to the in­spec­tors avail­able. For ex­am­ple, if only two ad­di­tional in­spec­tors are posted at the po­lice sta­tion, then the in­spec­tor in charge may as­sign the ad­di­tional re­spon­si­bil­ity of the third in­spec­tor to any of the two in­spec­tors,” the or­der reads, ex­plain­ing the con­cept.

The or­der also has de­tails of duties as­signed to the in­spec­tor in charge of the po­lice sta­tions and three ad­di­tional in­spec­tors. The in charge will hold the re­spon­si­bil­ity of ev­ery­thing from reg­is­tra­tion of FIRs, crime in­ves­ti­ga­tion, pa­trolling to law and or­der .

The in charge’s re­spon­si­bil­ity is de­fined un­der 24 dif­fer­ent points.
