Ranchi: In a recent development, the police department has decided to implement a performance assessment system for its officers. Those not meeting the expected standards in their duties will receive remarks, which will be incorporated into their annual confidential reports (ACRs). These remarks could have implications for their future promotions and transfers.
The decision was formalized during a meeting chaired by Director General of Police (DGP) Neeraj Sinha on Monday. In attendance were zonal Inspector Generals (IGs), range Deputy Inspector Generals (DIGs), Superintendents of Police (SPs), and other senior officers. The agenda encompassed a comprehensive review of law and order, crime control, anti-Naxal operations, traffic management, and various policing-related matters.
The DGP emphasized the need for police officers to enhance their public relations and act promptly on public complaints. He urged them to oversee the progress of cases within their respective jurisdictions, ensuring swift investigations and prosecutions. The DGP made it clear that officers failing to meet performance expectations or engaging in misconduct would receive remarks in their ACRs.
Furthermore, the DGP underscored the importance of bolstering the intelligence network and fostering collaboration with other agencies to prevent any untoward incidents. He urged the police force to remain vigilant against anti-social or anti-national elements and appreciated their dedication in maintaining law and order while combatting Naxalism in the state.
