Jitender: A Dedicated Police Officer

Jitender, a 1992 batch IPS officer, hails from a humble farming family in Jalandhar, Punjab. After his training, he was selected for the Andhra Pradesh (AP) cadre.

Jitender’s career path has been marked by steady progress and a commitment to tackling challenging assignments. He began his service as an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) in Nirmal, followed by a stint as Additional SP in Bellampally. He then rose to the position of Superintendent of Police (SP) in Guntur and Mahabubnagar districts, both areas known for Naxal activity.

Jitender’s dedication was further demonstrated by his deputation to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in Delhi and the elite anti-Naxalite force, the Greyhounds, from 2004 to 2006. Upon his return, he was promoted to Deputy Inspector General (DIG) and took charge of the Visakhapatnam range.

During his service in Andhra Pradesh (now Andhra Pradesh and Telangana), Jitender held various important positions. He served as DIG in Warangal range during the Telangana movement and gained experience in diverse areas like the CID, Inquiry Commission, Vigilance and Enforcement.

His commitment to public safety continued in Hyderabad, where he served as Additional Traffic Commissioner and later as Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) for Law and Order. He also held the crucial role of Director General (DG) of Prisons.
