The ACB will have a unit at every district. The ACB cells would be set up in every district and will be headed by an officer in the rank of Deputy Superintendent of Police.
The office at Bengaluru will be headed by an Additional Director General of Police and an Inspector General of Police.
The Southern Range headquarters of the ACB would be at Mysore while the Western, Eastern And Northern Range would headquartered at Mangalore, Davangere and Belagavi.
