Memorial and Significance

To honour the Police personnel of all CPOs/CAPFs/ State Police who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty for National Security, it was decided to construct a National Police Memorial (NPM) in Delhi.

The National Police Memorial (NPM) is conceived as an ode to our Policemen, who fight against terrorism, militancy and crime while maintaining law & order, protect national assets, combat disasters and other emergencies. It is a place for remembrance with gratitude and for quite reflection. The Police in India is the first agency of the Government to respond to the needs of people. Be it terrorist or insurgent attacks, normal crimes, law and order situations, natural and man-made disasters or provisions for emergency humanitarian assistance, the Police is always at the forefront. In meeting these challenges, police officers lay down their lives and perforce neglect the demands of their own families. Since Independence, 35,134 (till 31st August, 2019) Police personnel have sacrificed their lives which is more than any other department of the Government. Every year, on an average, 450 Police personnel sacrifice their lives in the line of duty.

The NPM site is on Shantipath, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi. Every object associated with the National Police Memorial would inspire the citizens and educate them about the bravery of the Police. The memorial underlines the vision to accord maximum respect to Indian Police who played a vital role in nation building.
