Deepika, from the family of four IPS officers in Andhra, bats for women safety

Deepika M Patil became the first IPS cadre woman officer posted in Kurnool as Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP). She is the fourth IPS officer from her family and a role model to women of the current generation.

Hyderabad, Aug 13, 2019: IPS officer Deepika Patil who believes in complete ‘evidence-based policing’ says, “there are many latest techniques to aid scientific investigation and ease the policing,”. She is one of the four IPS officers in the same family.

Deepika’s father Vishnuvardhan Rao is currently Director General of Jharkhand Police department and her brother Harshavardhan is the Superintendent of Police of Itanagar. Deepika’s husband Vikrant Patil is now Guntakal Railway Superintendent of Police in Andhra Pradesh.

Like most of the girls, Deepika also says, “My father Vishnu Vardhan is my inspiration to become an IPS officer and serve to the society.” Deepika’s brother Harsha Vardhan and husband VikranthPatil are also IPS officers.

“Now, a lot of technological things are coming up. People don’t know because they are not used to it. If policemen start using there will be better results,” Deepika added, “I will contribute my work by using such techniques as a police officer.”
