The Community policing scheme of Kerala Police, namely, Janamaithri Suraksha Project ensures the responsible participation of the citizens in crime prevention welfare at the level of the local community, pooling the resources both of the community and of the police. It was launched in 20 selected Police Stations during March, 2008. Today it is operated in all Police Stations in Kerala. The project centres around Beat Officers who are Police Constables/Head Constables/ Asst. Sub Inspectors, specially selected and trained. Each beat officer directly interacts with the people at the locality in his charge and work in tandem with them. Their activities are coordinated by a Community Relations Officer and SHO at the Station level. Experience shows that by seeking the active co-operation of the public in performance of police duties, the process of Law Enforcement becomes far more effective. The aim of the Project is to reduce crime and prevent crime with a Police – People partnership. The idea was wholeheartedly accepted by the people of Kerala. Every cross section of the society accepted the concept.
