2 Ggn SHOs suspended after performance review meet
Police Commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk held a review meeting with Station House Officers (SHOs) of all district police stations on Wednesday. The police chief evaluated the performances of the SHOs from the 25 police stations of Gurgaon, who were asked to submit statistics of crime rate under their respective jurisdictions.
After the review, two SHOs were suspended on Wednesday. The suspended persons are inspector Bijender Singh who was appointed as SHO at the Sector 5 police station, and inspector Umesh Bala from the recently opened women police station in Sector 51.
“They will now be posted at Police Lines as their performances were not found up to the mark,” said an official.
“In their place, inspector Shailender who is currently appointed as the additional SHO at Badshapur police station and Kailash Devi respectively have been posted. This will further improve the working of these police stations,” said an official statement by Police Commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk.
A similar meeting was held on crime three months ago but this time, the Commissioner has decided to take action against the poor performers. “We always choose the best performers and appreciate their efforts. However, this time, we’ll also find out the worst performers and see what action can be taken against them. This way, cops will automatically start improving the functioning of their police stations and maintain law and order in their areas,” said the Police Commissioner.
All SHOs from Gurgaon’s 25 police stations submitted the crime rate in their respective jurisdictions in the crime meet. Sources reveal that the top cop was not satisfied with the crime figures shown by the two suspended SHOs and their performance as the in-charge of their respective police stations.
The Commissioner had given an ultimatum to all police station in-charges at the beginning of this month to ensure that the crime rate in their areas do not reflect negative policing.
