Thane: Police commissioner Param Bir Singh on his last day on Monday said that his 42-months tenure in Thane was the “most satisfying post of his career spanning nearly three decades”.
Speaking to TOI, Singh said that the Thane police has raised the bar higher not just in dealing with crime and criminals, but also in achieving milestones in social policing.
I always wanted to create a culture of excellence and to bridge the gap between the citizens and cops. With projects like Kartavya for the elderly and our relentless crackdown on gang wars and while collar crime like the fake call centre scam and ephedrine racket, we have tackled crime firmly,” the 1988-batch IPS officer said. He also helped crack the recent Call Detail Record scam which involved several Bollywood celebrities.
Singh, who will take charge as additional director general (law and order) at the state police headquarters, had a busy day attending to 50 visitors and also allocating zones to the newly-transferred DCPs.
He will handover his charge to Vivek Phansalkar from the 1989 batch of IPS on Tuesday.
“I have always felt that these cases have broken the backbone of the racketeers and the next police commissioner Vivek Phansalkar will carry forward the trend set by us,” Singh said.
