Nepal Police 



Committed to protecting life and property and abiding by the principles of democracy and rule of law.

Headed by an Inspector General of Police (IGP), and with a strength of 72,000 officers, Nepal’s Police Force is part of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Nepal is divided into five geographical policing regions in addition to the Metropolitan Police, with each region being responsible for maintaining law and order within its territory.

Some of the specialized departments, which make up the Nepal Police include:

  • Administration;
  • Central Investigation Bureau;
  • Crime Division;
  • Crime Investigation;
  • Human Resources;
  • Metropolitan Police Office;
  • Narcotic Drugs Control Bureau;
  • National Police Academy;
  • Nepal Police Hospital;
  • Nepal Police School;
  • Operations;
  • Secretariat of the Inspector General of Police;
  • Traffic Control Division.

Kathmandu’s Central Police Training Centre was established in 1963 and provides all levels of law enforcement training to Nepalese police officers all year round.

INTERPOL Kathmandu

Also headed by the IGP, the INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Nepal is staffed by 13 police officers. INTERPOL-Kathmandu facilitates cross-border police co-operation by sharing important criminal intelligence – both nationally and internationally - through INTERPOL’s secure global police network I-24/7.

Main functions:

  1. Intelligence exchange with INTERPOL member countries and the General Secretariat;
  2. Preparation and publication of INTERPOL Notices;
  3. Co-ordination with law enforcement agencies, ministries, diplomatic agencies and non-governmental organizations;
  4. Intelligence analysis;
  5. Criminal record maintenance;
  6. Research and consultation to Nepalese ministries and governmental bodies about legal affairs such as extradition, deportation and legal instruments such as bi-lateral extradition treaties, multi-lateral extradition conventions, mutual legal assistance treaties etc.

NCB Kathmandu priority crime-fighting areas include:

  1. Cybercrime;
  2. Crimes against women, children and senior citizens;
  3. Drug trafficking;
  4. Financial crime;
  5. Firearms trafficking;
  6. Fugitive investigations;
  7. High tech crime;
  8. Organized crime;
  9. Terrorism;
  10. Trafficking in human being;
  11. Trafficking in illicit goods and counterfeiting;
  12. Vehicle crime.

In order to strengthen national security, INTERPOL Kathmandu has given some Kathmandu police units access to INTERPOL's databases. This means that police at the following national police divisions have automated access to INTERPOL’s global databases on wanted persons, stolen vehicles and stolen and lost travel documents, meaning they can determine within seconds whether a person is a potential criminal:

  • Central Investigation Bureau, Kathmandu;
  • Counter Terrorism Special Bureau, Kathmandu;
  • Tribhuvan International Airport (border control and counter-terrorism unit).
