Gautam Budh Nagar’s first commissioner of police (CP) Alok Singh was awarded the Outstanding Service Medal on Independence Day. He was awarded it for his services to the police force.

Singh was appointed CP on January 14 this year.

He had won accolades for his people-friendly policing and crime control in the district. Recently in a review meeting with the higher officials of Meerut division, chief minister Yogi Aditynath appreciated his efforts. The CM said the implementation of the commissionerate system “brought positive changes in the law and order scenario of the district, by tightening the noose around anti-social elements in the district in such a short span of time.”

Commissioner Singh said that GB Nagar police had been conducting a continuous series of soft skill programmes for their personnel. “We are trying to make our policing more people-centric, so that common people could get more responsiveness at their police stations,” he said.

Singh, a 1995-batch IPS officer, who holds the rank of an additional director general (ADG), was awarded the President Medal for Gallantry (PMG) in 2002 for busting a Naxalite network in Sonbhadra district, besides bagging the Silver and Gold Disc from DGP. He completed police training in Italy and Cambridge University and was appointed as the supervising officer of the policy level parliamentary affairs in the Government of India and had been director (security) in Air India.
