Police Commemoration Day is observed on October 21:

 
The Day of Police Commemoration is held on 21 October 2020. To honour the dedication and supreme sacrifice of police personnel for the country, the day is observed on October 21 every year.
 
Background:
It was on this day in 1959 when Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) led a saga of bravery and sacrifice in the inaccessible, inhospitable terrain of Hot Springs in Ladakh. A patrol party of twenty personnel of CRPF and Intelligence Bureau had gone to search for a missing reconnaissance party when the Chinese Army ambushed it. Despite the sudden attack and disadvantageous tactical position, they fought valiantly against the Chinese army personnel who were in large numbers and heavily armed. In this battle, ten CRPF men were martyred in defence of the country.
 
Highlights:
♦ PM Narendra Modi today paid tributes to all the police personnel martyred in the line of duty on Police Commemoration Day.
♦ Police Commemoration Day is to express gratitude to the police personnel and their families all across India. 
♦ Without hesitation, the police workers always send their best, from upholding law and order to solving horrific crimes, from emergency relief assistance to battling COVID-19.
♦ In the last one year, 264 personnel of State Police Forces as well as those of CAPFs, lost their lives in the line of duty.
♦ As Covid warriors, police and CAPF workers played a large and frontline role. As a result, in the line of service, 343 police and CAPF staff fell victim to Covid 19 thus contributing to the management of Covid.
