Mangaluru, May 23, 2016: Outgoing Inspector- General of Police (Western Range) Amrit Paul at a farewell function on May 22, Sunday, said that a lot of hard work was involved in solving crime cases and maintaining law and order in the region. “There is no magic wand, IG Paul said. People should trust the police and they should be given ample elbow room to work.
He stressed the facts that officers do not sleep for days together to detect/solve crime and maintain law and order. Working under stress with clues and resources, resonable manoeuvring space can help deliver better results.
IG Paul has been transferred as the Inspector-General of Police (Administration) in the office of Director-General and Inspector- General of Police.
The IG said the two-year tenure in the Western Range was fruitful and he had a good team of Superintendents of Police in four districts.
Outgoing Superintendent of Police Sharanappa S.D remembered the support he received from IG Paul and other senior police officers following the Karnataka High Court order in July 2014, which, he said, was traumatic.
SP Sharanappa, who is now posted as Deputy Commissioner of Police (South), said his two-year tenure was a success where he had done his best to improve professionalism among police. He asked people to lend the same support to Bhushan Gulabrao Borase, who will take charge as the Superintendent of Police.
