According to the Delhi Police Commissioner’s office, a total of 55 people have been designated as SHOs in the latest transfer/posting order issued by the Delhi Police.
In the latest posting order, 34 SHOs, who have already served more than 5 years as SHOs, have been shifted to different units. Of these, 18 inspectors have been posted in the security wing and eight in the police training college.
This is to strengthen the efforts of Delhi Police to create a dedicated security battalion to handle high-risk installation security in the capital, including the courts.
Similarly, the appointment of eight experienced inspectors with field experience as SHOs will give a major boost to training and human resource development.
In the 79 new postings of SHOs in the last one month, 65 officers have come for the first time, bringing new perspective and energy to the police station management and functioning.
