Hyderabad: In a major reshuffle in the police set-up, the Andhra Pradesh government today transferred 45 Indian Police Service (IPS) officers including Superintendents of Police and Inspector Generals.

Of those transferred, seven officers belonging to the IPS 1996-batch have been promoted to the rank of Deputy Inspector General of Police from SP. As many as ten districts got new police heads.

The State government also created four new urban police units in Tirupati, Guntur, Rajahmundry and Warangal, which has been a long-pending demand. Each of these new units will be headed by an Officer-on-Special-Duty in the rank of SP, according to State Chief Secretary S V Prasad.

Two of the officers transferred have been directed to report to the Director General of Police for postings.
