National Police Memorial

On October 21, 1959, ten valiant Policemen laid down their lives, in an ambush laid by heavily armed Chinese troops, while defending the integrity of our motherland at Hot Springs (Ladakh). Chinese troops had violated Indian territory in Aksai Chin area.

As per decision of heads of all Police Organizations participating in the 1960 IGsP/DGsP Conference, October 21 is observed as a Day of Remembrance for Police Officers, who made supreme sacrifice while discharging their duties. In the memory of gallant martyrs, a memorial was dedicated at Hot Springs, where a Police Team comprising representatives of various State/Central Forces visits to pay homage in August/September every year.

The National Police Memorial (NPM), erected at Chanakyapuri, New Delhi was dedicated to the nation by the Hon’ble PM on Oct.21, 2018 in recognition of sacrifices made by Police personnel since independence, and their paramount role in preserving national security and integrity.

Since Independence till 31 August, 2019, a total of 35,134 Police personnel have laid down their lives in the service of the nation. The NPM comprises a Central Sculpture, a Museum and Wall of Valour.
