The Superintendent of Police periodically revises the list of POs and the names of persons accused of trivial offences or concerned in cases where from lapse of time, no sufficient evidence is on record or is procurable, are omitted after consultation with the District Magistrate and the SP of the district in which such person was proclaimed. Whenever a PO is arrested intimation is sent to the police station and district of which he was a resident so that his name can be struck off the register/list of POs. The name is likewise struck off on receipt of intimation of the death of the proclaimed person.
