About Assam Police:

The advent of the British the police force was not a separate and distinct organisation entrusted with specific functions. The British created it to serve its colonial interests, and hence, it was loyal to the British Government. But after independence, it has undergone a dramatic change and today its loyalty is not merely to the Government, but also to the Sate, the Constitution and to the laws of the land.

There is no evidence of there being a regular police force in the state of Assam till the British took over after the Yandabu treaty of 1826. At the fag end of the Ahom rule and during the reign of Kamaleswar Singha (1795 -1811), an armed force on the British model was raised to serve the dual functions of maintenance of law and order and border defence. It was, however, not a regular and fully organised police force in the real sense of the term. After 1862, the British deployed regular troops in several parts of Assam to consolidate its occupation and a police establishment consisting of one Darogah, one Jamadhar and a number of constables was maintained at each district headquarters.The most important development in this process was the raising of the “Cachar Levy” in 1835 by the Civil Service Officer, in-charge of Nowgong district, Mr. Grange, to guard new settlements and tea estates. It consisted of 750 officers and men of different ranks, viz., Inspectors, Head Constables and Constables. Three years later, a similar body, called “Jorhat Militia”, was formed to protect the border areas against frequent border transgressions. It was also known as the “Shan” militia, as the recruits were mostly from the Shan community. Eventually it was merged with the “Cachar Levy”, which was subsequently renamed as “Frontier Police” in 1883 and then as “Assam Military Police” in 1891 and then again as “Assam Rifles” in 1920. The duties of the levy included the guarding of the Eastern Frontier of Assam from the Brahmaputra River to Cachar. The levy was a force of a semi-military nature. The men were poorly paid and the duties were arduous and often involving fighting. It is important to note that at the initial stage most of the recruits were from Bengal, as the local Assamese were not interested in joining the low-paid police service.

The Assam Police has grown from strength to strength during the last two decade. In 1980 it had a force of 40,290 and at the end of the 20th century its numerical strength stands at 61,263.

Since its humble origins over a century ago, the Assam Police has made great strides and today it is a well-organised and disciplined force with a long record of useful service behind it. During the course of the past decades, the Assam Police has developed proud and healthy traditions of service and conduct and though it had its failure and shortcomings, it has been able to play its part with credit and distinction and its record and performance have been as good and as worthy as that of any other police force in India.
