  • Reception officers in each Police Station
  • Daily Public Grievances of the Commissioner
  • May I help you, Police Booths
  • Sports Facilities in the Commissionerate campus

Operation Bawaria[edit]

The operation was launched in January 2005 soon after the murder of AIADMK Gummidipoondi MLA Sudarsanam when armed dacoits struck affluent houses surrounding the National Highway in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

Bawaria was the prime suspect in dacoities in which many prominent figures including Salem district Congress committee president Thalamuthu Natarajan and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam functionary Gajendran, were killed. In Sriperumbudur, they killed a schoolgirl and injured her parents grievously while committing a dacoity. Bawaria was wanted by the police in nine States for his involvement in about 200 major dacoity cases. One of his recent operations was at Gummidipoondi where AIADMK MLA Sudarsanam, was shot dead and his house looted.The operation against the Bawaria criminals was launched in January 2005 soon after the murder of Sudarsanam. When armed dacoits struck affluent houses along National Highways in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, Jayalalithaa ordered intensive action against the culprits. Director General of Police S. R. Jangid along with ADGP Sanjay Arora led a team to investigate.

The team started investigating. They soon realized that the fingerprints and style of killings matched. They speculated the murders were carried out by a single team in different parts of India. The team coordinated with the Uttar Pradesh Police and central intelligence agencies.[3] The team raided a house in Kannauj in the early hours. With reinforcement from the U.P. Special Task Force, they nabbed Bawaria and his wife Beena Devi as they were preparing for a major dacoity nearby.[4] Though the accused resisted, the police overpowered the couple and took them into custody.Beginning in January 2005, the team nabbed ten Bawaria gang members in various parts of the country along with four trucks used by them.[4] Over the course of the next eight years, the team hunted down the criminals and finally they found the remaining gang members in Rajasthan. The important culprits Oma Bawaria and Ashok Bawaria were executed in the order of the court.[3]
