Bhubaneswar: Senior IPS officer Ashish Singh has been posted as DIG Central Range, which is a consequential position, given the jurisdiction comprising seven important districts of this police range.

Prior to his posting in the STF and as DIG Southern Range, Singh has served as SP in Puri which is going to be an advantage for him in administering the most sensitive region of the Central Range.

OMMCOM NEWS interacted with Singh and got to know what are the challenges and opportunities before him with the new assignment.

Apart from the seven districts in the Central Range, Puri being an international tourist and pilgrimage destination will be on the focus, said Singh.

"To provide the best facilities to tourists and devotees will be our target. Our efforts will be focussed on making the religious environment of the pilgrim town even better," said Singh.

"We will focus on effectively achieving 5Ts in policing abiding by the targets set by our Chief Minister and DGP. Transperant and time-bound policing will earn confidence of people," he said.

"Aggrieved people should have a good experience and satisfied when they come to police stations. I will do my best to ensure this. We will also recognise the best performing SPs in the Range," Singh concluded.
