New Police Division in Wangdue

Oct 26, 2010

In a move to help enhance service delivery to the people of Shar-Dhar-Gyed, the Royal Bhutan Police opened a new division in Wangduephodrang yesterday. The 12th Division was inaugurated by the Chief of Police, Brigadier Kipchu Namgyel and Wangdue Lam Neten.

The new Division was found necessary as the Dzongkhag ranked fourth in crime rate in Bhutan. It is also because of the two ongoing mega projects, Punatshangchu I and II, in the Dzongkhag.

Till now, the Wangdue Police station was looked after by the Punakha Division.

The Chief of Police said that as per the order from the ministry of home and cultural affaris, there are plans to establish each division in all the 20 Dzongkhags.

The move, according to the Chief, is also a crime prevention strategy.
