New Delhi: Delhi Police to have one official spokesman
New Delhi: The new Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma has created a post of chief spokesperson for the force. Special commissioner of police (crime) Taj Hassan has been appointed the chief spokesperson (CP).
The move was to handle the media in a more “disciplined, systematic and professional manner.”
The chief spokesperson will address all media queries related to the Delhi police. Following the order, other senior officers will now be expected not to speak to the media even if the issue concerns them directly.
The move is meant to avoid potential embarrassments to the force, caused by an officer’s unrelated comments to the media without realising the magnitude of the issue.
