Lakshadweep Police Highlights

  Policing – A Human Rights Perspective


Policing in Lakshadweep (the then Laccadive) began with effect from 22.11.58 by the establishment of the first Police station at Minicoy. The station was manned by a strength of one Sub Inspector, 2 Head constable and 5 constables consisting of 3 deputations from Kerala state.

Lakshadweep being the smallest in the country, the Police force is very small. The crime rate is also the lowest in the country.

The outpost at Bitra under Chetlath Police Station and the aid post at Bangaram under Agatti Police Station respectively started functioning during the year 1991.

The present set up is based on the report on “Reorganisation of Police in the LMA group of islands” prepared by Sri Kripal Singh IPS DIG Delhi Administration during the year 1969.

Shri P.V.Sinari, the first IPS Officer joined the force on 16.1.74. The first batch of constables recruited on 13.7.64 were posted in the islands after basic training in January 1965. The first batch of direct entry Sub Inspectors recruited in 1971 joined the force in October 1972. The Police force consists of personnel from Kerala and the islands.

Lakshadweep Police Wireless was established in 1980 and is functioning under the Inspector (Communication).  The islands are connected with High Frequency interfaced with BEST equipments, VHF and UHF. The POLNET system in the islands through which the connectivity with the rest of the country can be a reality.

A special Branch unit is functioning at H.Q. Kavaratti headed by an Inspector of Police and under the direct control of the Superintendent of Police.

The security of the only airport at Agatti is managed by the strength of an Inspector, one S.I., one (SI woman), 2 HCs and 5 constables since 16.4.88.  View more here:
