CHRI’s new regional report covers India (with a focus on 5 states), Pakistan, Bangladesh and the Maldives. The report is the first of its kind. It provides information on strength across ranks, reviews the legal and policy framework on women police, and documents experiences and difficulties facing women starting from recruitment to training, promotion opportunities and deployment patterns. It concludes with a set of recommendations for enabling a more meaningful representation of women in policing across the region. It points out the value of including more women in policing and urges that more women be recruited.

Shri Kiren Rijiju, Hon’ble Minister of State for Home will grace the occasion and will launch the report along with Ms. Aruna M Bahuguna, IPS, Director National Police Academy, Hyderabad. A panel discussion with eminent persons to follow.  The meeting will be attended by serving and retired police personnel, government officials, women’s groups, lawyers and civil society organisations.

We look forward to your participation at this conference.
