Home Guards under Kerala Police to control Traffic in Trivandrum

The Trivandrum city police has inducted 210 home guards for traffic management at key points in the city.

The home guards, a majority of them ex-servicemen, had been recruited by the Kerala Fire and Rescue Services as part of a move to raise 3,000 home guards for rescue work and traffic regulation, among other things. They will function under a Commandant General.

Home guards will not be deployed for investigation, administrative work and in assignments involving fire arms. The rural police will also soon get home guards for deployment.

Home guards will have all the powers of traffic wardens. They will not have the powers to check vehicles and impose penalty on erring motorists.
