Every year on October 21, Police Commemoration Day is celebrated to solemnize the martyrdom of ten CRPF personnel who lost their lives while serving the country. The sole idea behind this day is to remember the sacrifice and tribute to the brave hearts killed during an attack by Chinese troops in the Hot Springs.

Police Commemoration Day – History

The start of Police Commemoration Day dates back to 1959. Amid the growing involvement of the Chinese Army, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) employees have been deployed alongside the Indo-Tibetan Border Force to maintain safety within side the frontier vicinity and guard the Indo-Tibet border posts. And that’s when 10 Indian policemen have been killed by Chinese Troops at Hot Springs in Aksai Chin close to Ladakh on October 21, 1959. 

Police Commemoration Day - Significance

Since then, the Annual Conference of Inspectors General of Police of States and Union Territories in January 1960 established October 21 as Police Commemoration Day. This day has been witnessed to honor the sacrifices of those ten police officers and all other police officers nationwide who sacrifice their life while serving the country.
