Puttur: The Puttur traffic police station had come into existence five years ago.
The jurisdiction of the traffic police station was extending from this town up to the Shiradi. This caused problems of distance and logistics, which were quite time-consuming.
Now by virtue of a notification from the director general and inspector general of police, their jurisdictions have been reorganized.
The Puttur traffic police have been relieved of the responsibility of places beyond Uppinangady up to Shiradi and this area has been put under the charge of Uppinangady police station.
This is an additional responsibility for the Uppinangady police, besides law and order and crime sections.
