M. Stephen Raveendra is a 1999 batch Regular Recruit (RR) of the Indian Police Service who got trained at the National Police Academy, Hyderabad, India and was inducted into the IPS on 20 September 1999. Raveendra is currently the West Zone Deputy Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad City Police

Early life and Schooling

Officer Raveendra is the son of an illustrious Cops Officer DSP M. B. Ranjit who previously retired as the Associate Commissioner of Cops, Asifnagar Department, Hyderabad city Cops. Raveendra schooled at St. Paul's High School, Little Flower Junior College and Nizam College, all in Hyderabad. After post-graduate studies at the Osmania University where he obtained a gold medal in Zoology, he cleared the Union Public Service Commission entrance and opted IPS and underwent training at the Sardar Vallabhai Patel National Police Academy, Hyderabad.


Raveendra's initial posting was in Warangal District where he was groomed by Damodar Gautam Sawang who was Deputy Inspector General of Police, Warangal Range, currently Police Commissioner, United Nations Mission in Liberia.

Incidentally, Noel Swaranjit Sen happened to be the Director General and Inspector General of Police of Andhra Pradesh when Raveendra was in Warangal District. The colleagueship of Swaranjit-Sawang-Stephen helped in containing the terrorist tactics of Naxalites.


So far in Raveendra's career he has encountered Naxalism (as SP-in-Warangal), Factionalism (as SP-in-Anantapur), Corruption (as SP-in-Karimangar), Regionalism (as DCP-in-East Zone) and presently Drugs[14] (as DCP-in-West Zone).

The areas under the jurisdiction of West Zone are in the news due to frequent arrests of persons possessing drugs. The problem of drugs is under current debate so much that the former Commissioner of Police A. K. Khan even addressed a seminar conducted at the Centre for Economic Studies in Hyderabad on the topic "War on Drugs" where Officer Raveendra was also present.

Parallels may be drawn between the colleagueship of Commissioner of Police A. K. Khan and Deputy Commissioner of Police Raveendra to Mumbai's then Commissioner of Police Julio Francis Ribeiro and Deputy Commissioner of Police Y. C. Pawar who also waged a war on drugs during their tenures in the mid eighties.
