Not a single day passes when the city police commissioner’s office is not in the news. Reason: the numerous people, ranging from cinema personalities, politicians to the common man visiting the office with hope that its doors are the only resort to their grievances. But all this is set to change as the city police have advised the public to not directly file their complaints or petitions at the grievances cell of the city police office. The police have announced that the public must instead approach the concerned police station first to lodge the complaints.

Even if they are not satisfied with the action taken at the police station, they must approach officers of these three intermediate ranks: assistant commissioner, deputy commissioner and the joint commissioner. The city police office could only be the final resort, if the actions taken by all these officers are not satisfactory. A notice board announcing the same has been placed in the entrance of the grievances hall in the office.
