Janamaithri Suraksha Project
Janamaithri Suraksha Project is the community policing project of the Kerala police. The project is structured so as to facilitate closer community involvement in ensuring security and safety within communities.
The project envisages strengthening the community policing theme by achieving the support of the local community. It is not a project aimed at bettering the image of the Police. It is also not a project wherein police duties are performed by the citizens. Rather it is a project to professionally strengthen Police and increase its accessibility to the needy public through close interaction with a better understanding of the public. Through the Beat Officers, every citizen living in the area will be known to the police and every citizen will be acquainted with the Beat Officers.
The objectives of the project.
- To prevent crime in the society.
- To elicit co-operation of the police and the public in security matters.
- To ensure mutual co-operation of members of the public in the domain of security

Women desks in Police Stations
Women Desks have been set up in most of the Police Stations of the State, since February 2006, under the charge of Women Police personnel, with an aim to help Women and Children seeking Police help, which they can do without any fear or inhibitions. Cases of atrocities against Women and Children, and harassment of women at home, work places or in public places, come under the purview of the Women Desks. These have proved to be extremely successful.
The Womens Desk in a Police Station is under the control of a WHC/WPC who listens to the complaints patiently and sympathetically, and takes the matter to higher authorities wherever necessary. The Women Desk also provides adequate and proper information to the Women and Children approaching them on various issues relating to the Police work. The Womens Desk is functioning during daytime ie. from 8 AM to 6 PM on all days. This system has been found to be a great success in redressing the grievances of the needy Women and Children.
