Cyberabad Gets Nod for New ACPs
In view of the increased workload in the traffic and crime wings of the Cyberabad Commissionerate, DGP Prasad Rao has got the government nod to re- designate two assistant commissioners of police (ACPs) and post one each in the two short-staffed wings. The government issued the necessary orders in this regard on Friday.
In his note to the government, the DGP had pointed out that there were 12 Traffic Police Stations under the jurisdiction of the Cyberabad Commissionerate and that they were being supervised by three ACPs.
But with the mounting traffic problems due to increase in vehicular traffic, mushrooming of new colonies, townships, apartments and shopping complexes and the extensive jurisdiction of the 12 existing traffic police stations, the three ACPS were not able to effectively and efficiently perform their duties.
Hence, he said there was need for one more division under the supervision of another ACP for the the traiffic wing and suggested that the number of divisions and ACPs be increased from three to four by re-designating an ACP working elsewhere in the department.
Thus, one ACP, Headquarters, has been re-designated as ACP Traffic for the proposed new division of the traffic wing of the Cyberabad Commisssionerate.
