The temporary camp office of the Director General of Police (DGP) for Andhra Pradesh is getting ready in the city. The State government had zeroed in on the residence of the irrigation superintendent engineer to locate the DGP camp office. The spacious building located between the State Guest House and the Officers’ Club would be the camp office for the DGP soon.
Before the Head of Departments (HoDs) shift base to the Amaravathi Township, the DGP is understood to have decided to relocate his office to the city. Sources said that the State Police had initially decided to have the DGP camp office on the sprawling DCP Bungalow located on MG Road near Swaraj Maidan junction. However, for security reasons, they have finalised the residence of the irrigation superintendent engineer. The police department, which took over the building last week, has started remodelling the building to make it temporary secretariat befitting the DGP, who is expected to frequent the city along with Heads of Departments (HoDs) by June.
The sources also said that the DGP would shift his camp office to this building after Sankranti. As reports of various fire mishaps are coming in from the capital region area and the government actively mulling over merging of the capital region with the Vijayawada Police Commissionerate, the DGP’s presence in the city is justified. However, the reports say that the permanent office of the DGP would come up around the APSP sixth battalion camps located in Mangalagiri along the Chennai-Kolkata National Highway.
