Celebrating jubilee with a difference

Citizens of the State have never experienced any dearth of ideas. And being police officers of the exclusive wing of telecommunication unit, they have come out with a novel way to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the formation of the State.

The unit simply printed 1,000 copies of a written examination containing 50 objective type questions about the history of the State from November 1, 1956, to November 1, 2006, and distributed among their colleagues and friends. Participants can refer textbooks and answer questions such as when was the police uniform modernised, formation of Alappuzha district, starting of the Dubai-Thiruvananthapuram flight service, President's rule imposed in the State and so on. S. Chandrakumar, president of the Telecommunication Unit of the Kerala Police Officers Association, says the participants can also take copies of the question sheet and use them. Age is no bar for taking part in this contest. The prize winners will be announced after the State conference to be held in Malappuram on Saturday. Through the contest, the department is spreading a message, ``Police is your friend. Interact with them without fear. Cooperate with them to help you.''
