Insignia of an Additional Director General of Police

Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) is an Indian Police Service rank. Though having the maximum possible 3-star police rank just like Director General of Police, ADGP's are considered junior to DGP's. The equivalent position or designation are Commissioner of Police of some cities like Kolkata, Chennai special or additional secretary. The insignia of an ADG is the national emblem over a crossed sword and baton. ADG-ranked officers wear Gorget patches on their collar, which have a dark blue background with an oak leaf pattern stitched on it, similar to IGs. ADGs are now posted as the zonal heads in various Indian states. The rank below it is Inspector General of Police and the rank above it is Special Director General of Police[1][2]
