Ladakh Police is the law enforcement agency for the union territory of Ladakh in India which came into being on 31 October 2019.

History[edit]

The union territory of Ladakh was formed on 31 October as a result of provisions contained within the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019.[2] The region was previously part of the state of Jammu and Kashmir and policing was responsibility of Jammu and Kashmir Police. A new police force for Ladakh was created when the new union territory was established.[3]

Organizational structure[edit]

Ladakh Police is under the direct control of Department of Home Affairs, Government of India. It is headed by Director General of Police (DGP).
