He won the Police (Special Duty) Medal and First Bar in 1999 for his services in Chandigarh during disturbed times. As Joint Commissioner of Police, he supervised the security arrangements for BRICS Summit 2012 in New Delhi. He is presently posted in Arunachal Pradesh.
D P Verma
He is the Joint Commissioner currently in charge of the Prime Minister's security. During his posting as DCP (Traffic), he managed traffic arrangements for the visit of the then US President George Bush, SAARC meet and the Queen's baton relay.
He was the Additional DCP of Northeast and Southwest districts and also worked as SP, Goa. His most challenging assignment came when he was appointed as SP (Nicobar) in the aftermath of the Tsunami which hit the Eastern coast in 2004. He organised massive relief operations and handled the disposal of a large number of bodies. For his exemplary efforts, he was awarded the Commendation Certificate — the highest civilian award in 2005. Singh also pioneered the idea of setting up of Mobile Tracing Cell in the Northeast district, which was later replicated in other areas. He successfully handled the arrangements for the Commonwealth Games.
