The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to setup the police commissioner system in Lucknow and Noida cities. This constitutes a major step towards police reforms in the state. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced the decision after a state cabinet meeting in Lucknow on Monday. He said that the cabinet has approved the Police Commissionerate system proposal, which was pending for decades because of lack of political will. He said the decision would further improve the law and order situation in the state. 

The police commissionerate system, when implemented, will leave the district magistrates with only revenue related work and all decisions regarding law and order will be taken by the police commissioners.

One ADG level police officer will be posted as Police Commissioner in Lucknow which will now have 40 police stations after addition of 2 new police stations. He will be assisted by 2 Joint Commissioners of Police of IG rank and 9 of SP rank.
