Report of the Kerala Police Performance and Accountability Commissions Persons Who Made Suggestions  (Full List)

5.01 The Kerala Police Performance and Accountability Commission was appointed at the initiative of A.K. Antony, former Chief Minister of Kerala. The Commission could commence its work without any loss of time due to the enthusiastic support which was continuously provided by the Chief Minister. Oommen Chandy, who succeeded A.K Antony, continued the support with the very same enthusiasm and understanding and that is why the Commission is able to complete its work within the appointed time. The support offered by N. Ramakrishnan, Home Secretary should also be mentioned in this connection.

5.02 The Commission places on record its appreciation of the service rendered by P.K. Hormis Tharakan, then Director General of Police, Kerala who was in that position at the commencement of the work of the Commission. He rendered solid support and assistance by sharing with the Commission his ideas about the various issues to be dealt with. Under his direction all the officers and men down the line supported the Commission in its endeavour with undiluted enthusiasm. The Superintendents of Police/Commissioners of police helped the Commission to make the sittings held at the District Headquarters useful. The DGP had also issued an Executive Directive to all the officers and men permitting them to freely discuss their views with the Commission on the terms of reference. This gave a positive impact on them as could be seen by the large number of officers and men who actively participated in the discussions held at District Headquarters. Selected serving and retired IAS and IPS officers whom the Commission chose to contact offered their assistance by expressing their valuable views on the terms of reference. People from different walks of life from retired High Court Judges to local Panchayat Members also helped the Commission in sharing their experiences and views. Raman Srivastava, who succeeded Hormis Tharakan at the fag end of the term of the Commission also rendered very helpful attitude as well as valuable suggestions.

5.03 The Commission is unable to conceal its disappointment at the poor response from the political parties, Members of Legislature and the office bearers of the three-tier Panchayats. It was interesting to note that even in the Districts where the sittings of the Commission were preceded `by police marchesí organized by prominent political parties against the alleged atrocities of the police (not a planned coincidence) there was no response from any of those organizations to the Commissionís call.

5.04 The Commission had the benefit of the views of some of the retired Judges of the High Court and also of the retired and serving IAS and IPS officers. The Commission was impressed by their readiness to convey their suggestions sprouted from their experience. Even though the Commission had occasion to peruse the reports of various Commissions/Committees on police reforms at the National and State level, it has not chosen to dwell extensively upon their recommendations as generally the implementation of those recommendations has not been inspiring. Instead, the focus of the Commission has been on pragmatic issues confronting the police and people in their day-to-day interaction. It is the fervent hope of the Commission that Government will consider the observations, conclusions and recommendations of the Commission seriously and try to implement them.

5.05 The Commission places on record its profound appreciation for the remarkable assistance rendered in its task by Shri M. Nazimuddin, Secretary to the Commission. He spent many hours even far beyond the office time to make the work of the Commission effective. His assistance deserves unreserved admiration.

5.06 Shri S.R. Kishore, Office Secretary and other supporting staff both in the Commissionís office at Kottayam and the Membersí office at Thiruvananthapuram also rendered very useful assistance through their service.
