West Jaintia Hills Police

Government of Meghalaya



First and foremost it is with great pride and pleasure to welcome all the citizens to the West Jaintia Hills District Executive Force website. The purpose of this website is to provide a platform for all the citizens of this district to address their grievances, as well as provide useful feedback and suggestions and bridging the gap between the police and the people, with the click of a button, thereby increasing the public’s confidence and assurance on the District Executive Force. The police force of this district are well trained and every opportunity is given to them to take a proactive approach on policing, be it in the field, combating crimes and maintaining law and order, or gaining the public trust and confidence through community policing. As Barbara Boxer, former US Senator once said “Law enforcement officers are never ‘off duty.’ They are dedicated public servants who are sworn to protect public safety at any time and place that the peace is threatened. They need all the help that they can get”, therefore, gaining the trust of the public through active community policing is the key priority to build up a strong relation between the District Executive Force and the citizens of the district.

On crimes and law and order front, the performance of the DEF has been laudable. A Women Police Station is set up to address issues relating to crime against women and children while the Juvenile unit has a child friendly room to address matters relating to minor children. The District Anti Narcotic Task Force is also set up to deal with the menace of drugs and illicit trafficking. It is noteworthy that due to the dedication of the officers and staff of all these units, a human trafficking ring was unearthed recently thereby rescuing a number of minor victims, while the Special Cell and the ANTF have taken a dynamic approach to curb smuggling and illicit trafficking of drugs.

The West Jaintia Hills District Executive Force still has many challenges ahead to reach its full potential in providing dedicated and efficient services in policing to the people of the district. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to address the community’s engagement on issues of crime and social disorder, as prevention of the same is a prerequisite to solving the safety and security challenges faced by the district police. Therefore, as the Superintendent of Police, West Jaintia Hills District, it is my appeal to the people in the district, to assist the District Executive Force by facilitating your participation in addressing the district’s safety and security concerns, thereby helping us maintain peace and tranquility in the district.

I hope that this effort by the West Jaintia Hills District Executive Force will be well appreciated and help us in serving the people of this district at our best.
