    Now, Tourist Police To Help Travellers In Mizoram

    The personnel of the special force were trained in soft skills, communication skills and equipped with knowledge of tourist places

    Mizoram is known for exquisite scenic locales and to make this beautiful state tourist-friendly, a special force called Tourist Police was recently launched by Mizoram Police. The state police force aims to make the state safe for tourists.

    The Tourist Police Vehicles were flagged off by Mizoram Home Minister Pu Lalchamliana on October 18th, 2019. Addressing the gathering, the Home Minister said that the Mizoram Tourist Police (MTP) will be responsible for the safety and security of the tourists during their travel, stay and visit to various tourist destinations in the state.

    The personnel of the special force were trained in soft skills, communication skills and equipped with knowledge of tourist places. The Tourist Police will initially be deployed in five major tourist attractions: Entry and Exit Point at Lengpui Airport, Solomon’s Temple, Aizawl, Millennium Centre, Aizawl, Thenzawl, Serchhip district and Zokhawthar Champai district.

    “Tourists may approach the MTP regarding information about tourist locations, to check the safety and security of a place, availability of transportation, to report crimes. However, tourists must also remember that MTP always has a watchful eye on tourists indulging in any illegal activity,” added the Minister. In case of emergencies, the tourists many call 112.

    Earlier, similar police units were introduced in Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh with an aim to make travelling hassle-free for tourists.
