Many initiatives have been taken by the Kerela Government to promote physical distancing and digitisation in India. The apps introduced by the state government include GoK Direct, BEVCO, COVID Care Kerala and more. However, the Kerala Police has started a new application called the Pol App that will help you to file an FIR or report through online means.
The official Kerala Police App is a digital initiative to give the common public easy access to all our services. More intuitive services will be soon added to this in short time.Our aim is to facilitate easier access to citizens to the services provided by the department.
The app inaugurated by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is titled as the POL- APP and has been developed for the citizens of the state to make it easier to file complaints in a way that it can easily be used by the common public. The app can also be used as a medium to locate the nearest police station after identifying a user’s phone location. The POL app will also have the phone numbers and email ids of all officers in the force, across ranks. The Governmental application can also be used to pay fees, for various services that can be availed through the police.
Users can send SOS calls during emergencies and the app also consists of a very simple interface that will help in ensuring the safety of women and children. People can also file cases and FIR reports easily by providing complete details themselves. A user who is filing a complaint in the POL-App can send the photo and description of crimes to the police, details of abandoned children, women and senior citizens can be sent to police through the app by geotagging their photographs. Currently, the POL App download is only available for android users on Google Play Store, however, it is said to arrive on other platforms soon.
