form of Policing in Andaman and Nicobar Islands was established
in August, 1875 with the extension of Indian Police Act of 1861
to Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Capt. Wimberly was appointed
as first District Superintendent of Police. In the same year the
Chief Commissioner of Andaman and Nicobar was vested with the
powers and functions of the Inspector General of Police.
The Japanese occupation of these Islands from 1942 to 1945
ruined the Police and Administrative set up in A&N Islands. As a
result fresh batch of officers and men known as 'deputation
force’ were drawn after British re-occupation in 1945 from
Special Armed Police of Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
Shri. N.F.Santook, the First Indian Police Service officer took
charge of Andaman and Nicobar Police on 16th January 1953, after
6 years of Independence. View more here:
