Due to the increasing crimes within the state, the Assam Government has decided to take necessary measures in order to strengthen policing within the state of Assam. Some decisions were taken by CM Sarma during a day-long meeting at the Assam Police Headquarters in Guwahati on November 24 where he primarily spoke in regards to intensifying policing.
Reforms made by Government:
In order to intensify and harden the policing in the state, CM Sarma and his government introduced a number of reformative measures that involved 1,000 new quarters for police, infrastructure upgrade for the Director-General Police and Commissioner offices. Besides, the CM was called upon for the creation of a Research and Analysis Cell which will be a specialized unit under the Special Branch of Assam Police for covert and overt operations. Sarma also said for draft recruitment rules for constables and sub-inspectors for Armed branch commandos of Assam Commando Battalion.

Sarma in a tweet said, “Advertisement for 6,000 posts including 5 commando battalions to be published by next week. Vacant SI posts are also to be filled up.” He further added, “With an aim to strengthen our policing infrastructure, a key to the safety and growth of our society, we have decided to take several reformative measures in a review meeting held at Assam police headquarters.”
