Reaffirming its unwavering commitment to providing exceptional service, the Botswana Police Service (BPS) commemorated its 139th anniversary at the National Stadium on Saturday.

Under the theme ‘Towards Safer and Secure Communities by 2036,’ this annual event has become one of the highlights on the national calendar, drawing an impressive crowd of all age groups and social backgrounds.

The roots of the BPS date back to 1884 when the British assembled 100 men to establish the police force. Over time, this evolved into three distinct forces: the Bechuanaland Mounted Police in 1884, the Bechuanaland Border Police in 1885, and the Bechuanaland Protectorate Police in 1902. The organisation eventually adopted the name Botswana Police Force in 1966 and later rebranded to BPS in 1997.
