Nagpur: For the last several months, police officers from across the country have been working round the clock to ensure minimal violation of COVID-19 norms. On the frontline of the war against coronavirus, police officers have been risking their own lives to contain the spread of COVID-19.
While the Janta Curfew was one of the efforts made to acknowledge and appreciate the sacrifices made by COVID-19 warriors. Another event that intends to appreciate the police forces is celebrated every year on October 21.
History of Police Commemoration Day
The history of Commemoration Day dates back to October 21, 1959, when Chinese forces ambushed a patrol party of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and 10 jawans lost their lives as they continued to fight for the country at the Indo-Tibetan border. The Day is celebrated every year to pay homage to police officials who fight for the safety of others and ensure proper implementation of law and order.
Police Commemoration Day intends to pay tribute to martyred police personnel who laid down their lives to ensure the safety of others. Chief Minister, Home Minister, Cabinet Ministers, Members of Parliament, MLAs, MLCs and top police personnel will review the parade and pay tributes to martyrs.
The police have made a schedule from October 21 to 31 and a standard operation procedure (SOP) issued by the government will be followed for the next ten days.
