: This is really good news for the traffic constables regulating vehicular movement on the dusty arterial roads in Tuticorin under the scorching sun as the police have introduced air-conditioned traffic police booths here.

The first AC police booth was opened at VVD Signal on Friday, and two more similar facilities – one near Central Police Station and the other near St.Antony’s Church – will be set up shortly with the sponsorship by private companies. The first booth is sponsored by Tuticorin-based Abi Group of Companies. Maintenance will be taken care of by the police, who will pay the bimonthly electricity bill as well.
