Towards the last half of the nineteenth century, high up in the laps of the Himalayas, events were unfolding that would lead to the birth of a new organization. Sikkim had become a protectorate of British India in 1861 and this had triggered off a spate of activity in the State.
The first political officer of Sikkim, Claude White thought that with the increase in population, crime would be more prevalent and felt necessary to raise a Police force. Sikkim was also having territorial disputes with Tibet.
In 1886 some Tibetian Militia occupied Lingto below the Jelepla pass on the Eastern border of Sikkim. In 1888 the Tibetians attacked Gnathang below the Jelepla pass but were pushed back by the British troops. Disturbances of such kind were posing a serious threat to the security of the state and the British felt that a Police outpost must be established somewhere at a strategic point on the Kalimpong-Rhenock-Jelepla-Lhasa Trade route.
It was on the 27th of Nov. 1897 that a force consisting of 1 Head Constable and 5 Constables was posted at Aritar near Rhenock on the authority of a resolution passed by the King of Sikkim in the council. Sikkim Police was thus born.

Message from DGP

"Over the decades, Sikkim Police has progressively and successfully carved a niche for itself in the country and emerged as a benchmark institution in Policing standards. It has been our constant endeavor to present ourselves before the community as a responsible guardian of citizen's interests.

The reputation painstakingly built and the standards achieved in the delivery of services need to be sustained and carried forward in time. This is possible only through the exercise of invigorating our reflexes and resources and laying of a framework for wider participation of all the stakeholders.

125th Anniversary (Quasquicentennial Year) Celebrations

 27 November 2021 - 27 November 2022 is declared the 125th Anniversary (Quasquicentennial Year) Celebrations together with 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav'.

Sikkim Police has prepared this Citizens’ Charter with a view to provide transparency in its activities, making the Police personnel more responsible and answerable to the people they serve and for ensuring that the objectives, values, priorities and commitments it strives to attain will be fulfilled. It aims at creating credibility for the Police Force among the people. It seeks to create an image of the Police as a reliable arm of the law to whom the common citizens can turn to without any fear or apprehension. It is hoped that the Citizens’ Charter will garner the trust of the common  people and establish faith in the service that the Sikkim Police renders to them so that the citizens do not hesitate to approach the Police
