Janamaitri helpline for the public

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: The City Police are setting another example in community policing. As part of reaching out to the public through the Janamaitri Suraksha Paddhati, the City Police are planning to start a helpline for them.

This is to be another first of its kind by the City Police, as the 24-hour helpline will provide information to the public free of cost.

The Janamaitri helpline will have numbers of all police stations in the State, ministry offices, all MLAs and all MPs, leading doctors of Kerala, blood banks in all the districts, main hospitals, that of the Indian Medical Association and other related organisations, ambulance service numbers, legal cells providing information on legal issues, KSRTC, railway and airport, as well as numbers of leading business centres in the State.

“We are planning to cover all public utility services one can think of. Right now, the information collection process is on,” said Manoj Abraham, City Police Commissioner.

The service number, 4044333, is expected to be up by June end. While the listing of public utility service will be made free, those of business establishments will be charged minimally. Those interested can call up the numbers 4044390 or 4044391 to list their service with the Janamaitri helpline.

The Janamaitri Helpline will be operated under the Kerala Janamaitri Foundation.
