From August 1, 2014, Police Commissionerate for Belagavi was made operational and IGP Bhaskar Rao was the first Commissioner of Police.
But from day one the Commissioner of Police did not have an office of its own. Since the beginning, it is housed in the SP office.
Then there were plans to shift the office to the half-built Police Gymkhana building at Sangolli Rayana Circle, but that to did not work out.
Now it has been finalized that the office of the Commissioner of Police Belagavi will be built at the site of City Police Lines College Road, behind the RLS Campus.
The short term tender document for the same at a cost of Rs.12.79 crores has been floated.
