INTRODUCTION:

The introduction of Police system in Mizoram dates back to the second half of the 19th century following the advent of the British administration. In 1862, Pu Rothangpuia, Thangluah Chief, for fear of impending raid from the neighbouring tribes sought and managed to obtain protection from the Hills Superintendent of Chittagong and agreed to keep 40 men of Frontier Police offered by the Deputy Commissioner of Chittagong at Tlabung (Demagiri). This marked the beginning of Police posts in Mizoram as the post subsequently became an important base as well as rendezvous for necessary patrolling and other operations in the Demagiri ranges. The Government constructed the present Tlabung Police Station at the expense of a mere Rs 1760/- in 1899 and the building is still standing strong weathering rough weather and the challenges of time and it has now been declared as a heritage building and is under proper care.

Till the end of the second half of the 19th century, the Mizo Chief were the centre of authority in Mizoram and since the Mizo Chiefs frequently waded into Britsh territories, a punitive expedition, consisting of 57 officers and 1225 men were sent into the South Lushai Hills under the command of Colonel F.V.W.Treager. The Force constructed a large timber stockade with living accommodation for 3 officers and 250 men called “Frontier Police Central Post, Lungleh’ at Lunglei on March 1889 and the post was manned by a British Officer and 212 men of the Frontier Police. By means of this post it was hoped to dominate the Southern Lushai Hills. By 1890, the British supremacy was established in the Lushai Hills and political officers were posted both at Aizawl and Lunglei. On April 1, 1891, the South Lushai Hills became a district under the Bengal Province and was placed under C.S. Murray, Dy.SP as Superintendent of Lungleh. The Superintendent was made head of all departments, including Civil Administration in the District. In 1898, in order to solve the various administrative problems that it has created, the South Lushai Hills and the North Lushai Hills were amalgamated into one District with its Headquarter at Aizawl and was placed under Assam. The unit became to be known as Lushai Hills District under the charge of Superintendent. Accordingly, the Government set up a Civil Police Out Post at Lunglei under Sub-Inspector of Police in 1900. Now, the Out Post had been upgraded to the status of a full-fledged (sadar) Police Station, Lunglei. This effectively paved the way for the existence of the present District Executive Force, Lunglei. In 1950, Mr.N.K.Sinha Dy.SP was posted at Lunglei as the first SDPO,Lunglei.

In 1972, Mizoram became a Union Territory and Mizoram was divided into three (3) Districts viz., Aizawl, Lunglei and Chhimtuipui District. The erstwhile Assam Police in Mizo District under Assam was converted into Mizoram Police. The first Inspector General of Police (I.G.P.) posted to Mizoram was I.J.Verma. Lunglei became a district headquarters and the post of Superintendent of Police was created, and Mr. A.N.Choudhury, IPS became the first Superintendent of Police, Lunglei on Dt.1st Sept.1972. Till date, Lunglei District Police has grown from strength to strength and have evolved to be a vibrant, dynamic and effective force with numerous achievements to its credit.
