JAP-1: Elite force in Jharkhand which is only of Indian Gorkhas

JHARKHAND ARMED POLICE-1  is the most elite force in Jharkhand which is only of Indian Gorkha’s. Its inception can be trace back to 1880 A.D. by the British during Victorian Age to restore justice, peace and harmony. I won’t be wrong to mention here Jharkhand Armed Police-1 as OLDEST PARA MILITARY FORCE OF INDIA. Though, it names keep on changing with the advent of time. Today it has more than 14 companies rendering service in Naxalite prone remote areas , escorting VVIPS and VIP’s of the state. Where our numerous jawans have laid their lives in this soil while rendering duties.This Battalion has received accolade of being best and elite battalion not only in the state (Jharkhand) but also in India. Besides Pipe Band has won gold medal in the All India Police Band Competition.

This battalion was formed in January' 1880 in the name of "New Reserve Police Force" in the prime year of British Empire in Victoria Age. In year 1892 it was named "Bengal Military Police" and its platoons were deputed in the then Bengal Province which included Bihar and Orissa. British administrators used this force in dealing with matters relating with enforcement of justice, peace and law and order in difficult times. British administrators reposed complete faith in loyalty of this force. Jawans of this battalion discharged their duties with full devotion and to the best of their abilities even in difficult situations. In the year 1905 this battalion was named “Gorkha Military Police” and was popularly known as G.M.P. Gorkha Jawans deployed in other part of the state were also absorbed in this battalion. It was then patterned after the infantry division of Army. When India attained freedom in 1948, this battalion was renamed “Bihar Military Police”. After the formation of Jharkhand State, the BMP-1 Battalion came to be known as Jharkhand Armed Police-1 Battalion.
