Kiran Bedi

This is Kiran.

Dr. Kiran Bedi is India’s first and highest ranking female police officer. She’s a social activist, a writer, a former tennis player, and a politician.

In the India Police Service, Kiran enacted measures for crime prevention, reform, and community policing.

As Inspector General, Kiran transformed India’s notorious Tihar Jail. Under her leadership, an institution known for widespread drug addiction and sexual abuse became a center for reformation.

Kiran’s bravery continues in the civic arena, propelling India forward by leading programs that allow all citizens — inmates, women, and rural residents — to live a dignified life.

Thank you, Kiran.
