Assam Police is a mammoth organization with a sanctioned strength of approximately 65,000 (sixty five thousand). It is led by the Director General of Police and the Inspector General of Police with its Headquarters located at Ulubari, Guwahati.
The glorious history of Assam Police is inextricably woven with the history of the Nation & North – East in general and that of present day Assam in particular. While Policing did exist in the days of Ahom kings, a modern Police came into existence with the coming of the British rulers.
Before the advent of the British there did not seem to be any organised police force in Assam, either under the Ahom Kings or earlier.The army as well as the various officers of the kingdom were responsible for the maintenance of peace and safeguarding the lives and properties of the people.
