Cartoon characters adorn walls of police station; move to be child-friendly
Ponkunnam: As part of making 52 police stations in the state child-friendly, Ponkunnam police station has underwent an attractive facelift. People are likely to mistake the station for a nursery seeing the colourful cartoon characters on its walls.
The major feature of the renovation is the comic characters painted on the walls of the new building close to the entrance of the station. The children who accompany their parents to the police station can spend time in this room for recreation and entertainment.
The building was constructed at a cost of Rs 9 lakh. Toys, television, water cooler and air conditioner are available in this room. A woman police officer is in charge of the facility. The women help desk will continue functioning here.
