CCTNS is a Mission Mode Project (MMP) under the National e-Governance Plan of Govt. of India.
CCTNS aims at creating a comprehensive and integrated system for enhancing the efficiency
and effectiveness of policing. It will not only automate Police functions at Police station
and higher levels but will also create facilities and mechanism to provide public services
like registration of online complaints, ascertaining the status of case registered at the
police station, verification of persons etc.
The records of crimes and criminals available at one police station will be accessible to
any other police office. The goals of the system are to facilitate collection, storage,
retrieval, analysis, transfer and sharing of data and information at the police station
and between the police station and the State Headquarters and the Central Police
Organizations. National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) is the central nodal agency that
would manage CCTNS
Kerala has been selected as a pilot state by NCRB for the implementation of CCTNS project.
State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) is the state nodal agency responsible for implementing
the project. Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS) has been selected as the System Integrator
(SI) for implementing the Project. Accenture Services Pvt. Ltd. was selected as the
State Project Monitoring Unit (SPMU)for monitoring the implementation of CCTNS in the state.
Kerala police introduced ‘Pink Beat’ patrols for enhancing the safety for women and children in public places. The Pink Beat includes specially trained women police personnel. These police personnel will patrol on KSRTC and private stage carriers and will be present at bus stops, schools, colleges and other public places.

The Student Police Cadet (SPC) Project is a school-based initiative
by Kerala Police, implemented jointly by the Departments of Home and
Education, and supported by Departments of Transport, Forest, Excise and
Local Self-Government. The project trains high school students to
evolve as future leaders of a democratic society by inculcating in them
respect for the law, discipline, civic sense, empathy for vulnerable
sections of society and resistance to social evils. The project also
enables youth to explore and develop their innate capabilities, thereby
empowering them to resist the growth of negative tendencies such as
social intolerance, substance abuse, deviant behavior, and
anti-establishment violence. Equally, it strengthens within them
commitment towards their family, the community, and the environment.
The Project was launched on August 2, 2010 in 127 high schools/higher
secondary schools across Kerala, with 11,176 students, both boys and
girls, enrolled as Cadets and 254 teachers trained as school-level
Community Police Officers (CPOs). The project was gradually expanded to
more and more schools due to immense popularity and ready acceptance by
schools, teachers, students, parents, civil society, alike. As on
today i.e., by October 2019, as many as 702 schools located in 19 police
districts of Kerala with a combined strength of 60,000 cadets and 1404
CPOs have implemented the project.
Union Home Minister has announced on 21st July, 2018, that the SPC

The Kerala Government has launched a widespread campaign aimed at
arresting the rising prevalence of substance abuse and other
inappropriate social behavior among students named 'Clean Campus, Safe
Campus', the Home, Education & Health Departments have come together
to give shape and implement this long-term campaign that will target
students up to standard 12 in the first phase.
Kerala government decided to launch this awareness campaign
taking a serious note of large-scale sale of narcotic products in the
vicinity of schools and colleges to rid campuses of the menace of drugs,
alcohol and tobacco products. As a part of the project, special
operation groups have been constituted. During raids, apart from ganja,
several ampoules and illegal drugs were also seized.
The main objective of the programme was to wean the students
away from the use of these products. About 4.5 million students of
12,000 schools are part of the programme.
The top Malayalam star Mammootty is the brand ambassador for the programme.
For the effective implementation of the Project, Government constituted a three tier committee as follows
School Level Monitoring Committees should be periodically
reviewed by District Level Committees. This District Level Monitoring
Committee is responsible for reviewing the implementation of "Clean
Campus Safe Campus" campaign. The District Level Monitoring Committee
can set the law in motion against the violators and conduct surprise
inspections to see if the campaign is being implemented in schools and
the slated objectives met. This committee should meet at least once in
State Level Monitoring Committee ensure the District Level
Monitoring Committees are functioning effectively by calling for
periodic reports. This committee will meet at least once in six months.
The Hon'ble Minister of Home, Education and Health Departments will
also review the functioning of the campaign periodically.
Janamaithri Suraksha Project of Kerala Police is a path breaking project which aims to effectively bridge the gap between
police and public through participation of citizens in matters of crime prevention, intelligence sharing and prioritizing
policing areas at the level of police beats. Designated, well trained male and female beat officers directly
interact with each and every family and citizen in their beat and develop familiarity with the happenings in the locality.
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 term Community Police does not refer to
either a new police group or a local community group that undertakes policing work themselves.
On the other hand, it envisages a method of policing by members of the police organization quite
distinct from the traditional style that seeks the cooperation of the community, understands the
needs of the “community”, gives priority to the security of the “community”, and, taking into account
the resources available within the “community”, attempts to streamline the activities of police personnel
at local police stations to address the special problems of each community. Government of Kerala launched
Janamaithri Suraksha Project in 20 selected Police Stations in March, 2008. As on today Janamaithri Suraksha
Project is implemented in all 478 Police stations in Kerala. It was introduced in a phased manner to cover over
half the police stations by 2012 and the remaining by 2018. The project has made tremendous impact on Kerala Society.
Further a number of initiatives such as establishment of Coastal Vigilance Committees, Road Safety Programmes, etc.
are being implemented in the State. These programmes also are based on the philosophy, principles and practices of
Community Policing. Since Community Policing involves a philosophy of policing which is distinct from the traditional
approach to policing, it is of crucial importance that appropriate training inputs are given for developing the right
imparting the relevant knowledge and skills among the cutting edge level police officials.
In order to popularize the concept of Janamaithri Project, Janamaithri Kendrams/centres were opened in
District and Battalion Headquarters.
These centres help people to come and interact with police. These centres have become extremely popular with the public.
