Kadalora Jagratha Samithy

The Kadalora Jagratha Samithi is formed by the Order of Go. No. 31/09/Home Dated 04.03.2009 and PHQ Circular No. 18/2009 Dated 27.04.2009. In the jurisdiction of Coastal Police Station Azhikode, there are Eight Kadalora Jagratha Samithies functioning in a well manner. The Coastal belt is a vulnerable place for many kinds of illegal activities like smuggling, liquor, drugs trafficking etc. After the formation of Kadalora Jagratha Samithies, Police have a deep and constant relation with the fisherman who spends their major time in the sea, and their families who are the only people who stay all the time in the coast. This in turn has helped a lot in collecting information which helps the force to act against all sorts of illegal activities which were happening through the sea in odd hours. It has become an obligation from the part of KJS to come along with coastal Police for each and every operation of rescue as well as security exercises and that continues to help our Police force to make sure that our coastal arena is free from any illegal activities and is in full tranquility.
