Police stations in Kerala to be computerised

  Kasaragod: As a part of upgrading police networking in Kerala, the government would install a computer in all police stations in the state and people could lodge their complaints through e-mail, State Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said today

"The computer networks in all police stations would help people lodge their complaints and grievances via e-mail without physically presenting themselves before the respective police stations," Balakrishnan said, inaugurating the state level distribution of certificates equivalent to the tenth class issued by Kerala State Literacy Mission here.

Stating that efforts were on to give computer training to all police personnel, he said all personnel including women police constables, undergoing training at the police academy were being imparted compulsory computer training.

The minister asked the state literacy mission to include computer training in its curricula as there was a growing gap between computer literates and non-literate in a highly literate state like Kerala.

Local MLA C T Ahmed Ali were among those who attended the function held at the municipal conference hall here.
