Outgoing Commissioner lauded for his initiatives

Community involvement is essential for successful policing, B Sivadhar Reddy, who took over as Commissioner of Police from J. Purnachandra Rao, said.

“I believe it is a challenging post and hope to live up to the expectation of the people,” he said addressing the media after taking charge. Pointing out that he had worked earlier in the district, he said he was aware of the people here and the problems they faced and that he was happy to be posted in the city.

He congratulated the outgoing Commissioner of Police J. Purnachandra Rao for his initiatives like the Community Guard and efforts to reduce traffic accidents and said that he would like to take the initiatives forward.

After officially taking over charge he inspected a ceremonial guard of honour presented by the Community Guard Volunteer Force and inaugurated the office of the Community Guard Volunteer Organisation. He sought some clarifications from outgoing CP and the Reserve Inspector (Home Guards) who also heads the organisation. Two advisors of the organisation A. Prasanna Kumar and Khasim Mehdi were also present on the occasion.

Outgoing Commissioner of Police took the opportunity to thank every officer and staff and also the ministerial staff for their cooperation during his tenure here. The ministerial staff felicitated the outgoing officer and welcomed the new officer.
