Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said the basic infrastructure facilities of the police have witnessed a considerable improvement in the last five years.

“Most of the police stations are now functioning from their own buildings. The rest of the stations will get their own buildings soon,” he said while inaugurating some police station buildings and launching the construction of a few others through videoconferencing on Saturday.
