The City is a major commercial gateway to the North Eastern states/U.T. of India (Sikkim,Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura, Manipur, Nagaland, Mizoram,Arunackal Pradesh) as well as three neighbouring countries of Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh. The International border with China(actually with Sikkim) is also not very far away from the City The city has seen a surge in population due to an influx of people from various states as well as from Nepal and Bhutan in search of livelihood and trade. As with all growing cities there is an inevitable rise in various activities as also a massive surge in Traffic volume. The need was felt for a modern Police force in the city which can react to the enhanced requirements for a prompt and efficient Law enforcement. It was for this reason that the Siliguri Police Commissionerate was conceptualised and started on 4th August, 2012. The main mission of the Siliguri Police Commissionerate is to provide and promote a peaceful, safe and secure environment to the city so that every law-abiding individual living in or visiting the city can enjoy a good quality of life and achieve what they aspire for.
