In addition to that, many amendments have occurred in the  1861 police recruitment Act  since then, influencing the state’s current police institution and structure. The director-general of police(D.G.P.) is leading the state police authority moreover, he addresses the state police that how and what they have to work. So that Many higher authorized personnel are addressing him regarding the situation and condition of our state. The State Capital “Lucknow” is the headquarter of the State Police Organization .

Therefore, each police zone is made up of two to three police ranges.

Brief about how UP police works

The state of Uttar Pradesh has a total of 18 police ranges. Each range, which corresponds to the administrative division, is led by an official with the rank of inspector general of police or deputy inspector general of police. Each police range is made up of two to four districts. The state is divided into 74 police districts. The SP or SSP is the police chief in each district ( excluding Lucknow, Gautam Buddha Nagar, Kanpur Nagar and Varanasi ). Therefore, Superintendent of police(SP), Deputy superintendent of police( deputy SP), or assistant superintendent of police, who may be officers of the provincial police service for the Indian police services, support him in the performance of his duties. The number of SPs and deputy SPs in each district varies according to the district’s size, population, police word and kind of police jobs. While the  Districts like Lucknow, Varanasi,  Allahabad etc have significantly more SPs and deputy SPs than other districts. But in smaller districts such as Baghpat, kannauj, Mahoba, and Chandauli, the number of PPS officers is much lower. In most cases, a state police district corresponds to the administrative district and  though the senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Superintendent of Police(SP), Police, always an officer of the Police service, is in charge of the district police force and the district magistrate, who is an officer of the Indian administrative service.

The district is led by a Commissioner of Police who holds the title of additional director general of police (ADG). A combination of IPS and PPS officers is assigned to them as DCPs and ACP’s. In a zone, three DCPs are stationed. The state emblem is above one star on the Insignia of one DCP, who is senior to the other two DC’s, whose Insignia is merely one state emblem.
