On guard: These photos depict the Mumbai Police force at its best

The Mumbai Police Calendar 2017, shot by photographer Pravin Talan, was launched by Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis recently. While the force will be using its official Twitter handle to share images from the calendar, a downloadable PDF version will also be made available.

About the theme for this year's calendar Commissioner of Police Dattatraya Padsalgikar says, "Mumbai is a magnanimous city. It has lived through a lot of ups and downs and always emerged stronger than before. This city has inspired millions across the globe and inspires us at every dawn. Mumbai Police derives its strength from the citizens and our selfless service is our tribute to Mumbai."
