Shri Arun Kumar Sarangi, IPS
Director General of Police,


               On assumption of additional charge of Director General of Police, Odisha on 31st December 2023, I convey my best wishes to all the members of Odisha Police and their families. I pay homage to all the brave police personnel who have laid down their lives in the line of duty and in Naxal violence in the state. Their supreme sacrifice must motivate us to work with greater zeal.

               Police is mandated to prevent and investigate crime and handle law & order situation etc. While doing so, we must maintain a people-friendly approach. Higher degree of professionalism, integrity, truthfulness, probity and a strong will to uphold the law of the land without any fear or favour are the hallmarks of a superior police force. Police personnel must keep their private lives scrupulously clean, develop self-restraint and be absolutely honest in their thoughts and deeds so as to be examples to the citizens. We must thrive hard to earn trust of the people as that would be our invaluable treasure in discharging police functions effectively.

               I wish you and your family a wonderful New Year 2024 full of health, happiness and prosperity.
