Balwinder Singh is an officer with a difference is what his subordinates feel!

Unlike his predecessors, the new City Police Commissioner's decision to interact with Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs), Assistant Commissioners of Police and Inspectors by personally visiting DCP offices and taking stock of the law and order situation in the city has set tongues wagging in the police circles.

Earlier, whenever a new Commissioner took charge there used to be marathon meetings with all the officers at the head office in Basheerbagh immediately after assuming charge and regular crime meetings each month. Visiting DCP offices has been a rarity but Mr. Singh apparently wants to show some change in the functioning. This new initiative will definitely save time and also bring some attitudinal change in lower rung officers, feel many.
