Charu Bali became the first female Police Commissioner in Panchkula, India.
Bali has worked in the Ministry of Home Affairs, telecommunications, Railways, and the Planning Commission. Bali received her law degree in 1994 from Panjab University, as well as receiving a Masters of Arts in Women Studies. Bali was awarded a gold medal in MA Women Studies this March at her convocation.
Bali is committed to making police stations more child-friendly for young victims and children of victims by providing them spaces where they can feel safe and less intimidated. Bali is also working against staffing shortages and ensuring the best candidates for the job are chosen and not held back for simply being a woman.
Bali is set on leading change wherever she can and we look forward to the positive initiatives she will work towards implementing in the future.
