New Jharkhand DGP outlines Cyber Crime control and security to commoners on his priority list

Ranchi: Newly appointed Jharkhand DGP Ajay Kumar Singh said that controlling cyber crime and Left Wing Extremism along with security and safety of the common people are on the top list in his areas of priorities. Singh, who became 13th DGP of the state, after assuming charge, had a courtesy meeting with Chief Minister Hemant Soren.

An IPS officer from the 1989 batch Ajay Kumar Singh was speaking with the press after assuming charge at the state police headquarters here. Crime and maoists will be eliminated from the state. The state’s anti-insurgency campaign, which has so far been successful with the assistance of the state police and central security forces, will be stepped up while on the other hand the current assault against the maoists will also continue.

Adding further he said that people of the state will be protected and he is ready to confront whatever challenges come his way. He said that he will make every effort to maintain law and order and to prevent crime. The residents of the state should have easy access to all police services; this will be emphasized more, he said. He said special attention will be given to the basic work of the police.

He said that the work which is already being done in a better way will be improved further. Apart from this, he said, exercises for crime control and crime prevention will be done more. Seeing that better work has been done in many states regarding community policing and security of senior citizens, efforts will be made to improve this thing here too. Those misguided to become extremists are brought into the mainstream. In order to control the growing cyber crime in the state special training will be imparted to the policemen and whatever equipment they need will be made available, he said.

He has worked as superintendent of police in many districts of Bihar and Jharkhand. He has worked as SP in Purnia, Chhapra, Lakhisarai, Godda, Deoghar and Dhanbad. He has also been the DIG of Hazaribagh. Before becoming DGP, he was the chief of the Police Housing and the Anti Corruption Bureau.
