About Sikh Police
Sikh Police is an independent, non-campaigning organisation that works to promote human rights and civil liberties through policing. We are not a separate, official police body. We formed in response to queries to illustrate how the policing aspect of a Sikh state would operate.
Our purpose is to protect all people (including non-Sikhs) wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied. We endeavour to achieve this by advocating the Sikh Policing Model as a template for all police forces.
We believe that respect for human rights is important and benefits everyone. The protection and promotion of human rights can help to create a fairer, more accepting society, whilst tackling inequality and disadvantage sometimes caused by inadequate policing.
We strive to achieve our objectives through the invaluable work of our dedicated and passionate volunteers.
The promotion of international human rights. This includes:
- the elimination of any infringement of these rights by police forces; and
- the promotion of effective remedies (in light of any breach), from the egalitarian teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib, for the benefit of all humankind.
- The provision of educational material and information on policing crimes that deny human rights, such as honour-based-violence and police atrocities against Sikhs.
- The undertaking and promotion of research into Sikh policing ideals and human rights.
- to highlight the way that corruption and police violations often go hand in hand.
- to empower and support those who have their rights violated.
- to hold those responsible to account.
