Cyberabad police Commissionerate divided, Cyberabad Police Commissionerate, CV Anand. After a decade of existence, the Cyberabad Police Commissionerate authorities are now mulling to set up a new camp office.
Last year, 2,391 cases of crime against women were registered with the Cyberabad Commissionerate, as against 1,914 registered in 2012. Some 103 cyber crime cases were reported at the commissionerate in 2013 as against 62 in 2012. The number of accidents too rose to 3,751, compared to 3,630 in 2012. Evidently, the increase in crime rates was taking a toll on the Cyberabad Commissionerate. The commissionerate has now been divided into East and West, to counter administrative hassles. There are also plans to set up a camp office either at LB Nagar or Malkajgiri
After a decade of existence, the Cyberabad Police Commissionerate authorities are now mulling to set up a new camp office. Being the biggest commissionerate in the state, Cyberabad poses administrative problems. Started in 2003, with Shamshabad, Madhapur, Balanagar, LB Nagar and Malkajgiri DCP zones, the Cyberabad Commissionerate now has 11 ACP zones. The number of stations too have increased from 32 to 41.
Spread over an area which is nearly 18 times larger than Hyderabad Commissionerate, nearly 60 lakh people fall under the jurisdiction of the Cyberabad Police. Over the years, there has been a spurt in the crime cases being registered under its limits. In 2013, some 2,391 cases of crimes were registered against women as against 1,914 in 2012. The number of accidents went up from 3,630 in 2012 to 3,751 in 2013. There was a massive leap in cyber crime cases which stood at 103 in 2013 as against 62 in 2012.
Though not officially declared, all the five DCP zones have been divided into East and West. Even the departments like Law and Order, Traffic, Cyber Crime, SOT etc., have been divided into two zones and each department is being headed by either an officer of ACP rank or an inspector in charge.
Administration is also a key factor for the division of the Commissionerate. Four Commissioners have headed the Cyberabad Police so far, including CV Anand. Though earlier Commissioners proposed noteworthy initiatives which were fruitful, every initiative had a natural death as a new Commissioner came along.
The latest move to set up a camp office was initiated by CV Anand. The first step was taken in August 2013, when the Special Operations Team (SOT) was divided into two branches. This proved to be a successful initiative, which prompted a similar division in other departments as well. It led to a speedy disposal of cases. As part of this ongoing drive, the Central Crime Stations under the Cyberabad limits have been strengthened.
“The move to divide into East and West is not new. We have done it to ease administrative hassles. This is in place in all the departments under Cyberabad,” shared CV Anand, Commissioner, Cyberabad.
