International Tourism Police Station and Police Museum, Fort Kochi

International Tourism Police Station and Police Museum at Mattancherry in Ernakulam district is the first of its kind in the country which not only addresses grievances of tourists but also showcases the history of the Kerala Police. 

The primary aim of the station is to make the state of Kerala more tourist-friendly. Started in 2010, the station offers a host of services and facilities to travellers visiting the state.  Tourists can clear their doubts and get details on passport, visa, hiring vehicles, tourist places, transport facilities and accommodation units. Not only this, tourists can also lodge complaints regarding lost valuables or any crime.  The Tourism Police Station helps tourists make their trips easy, convenient and comfortable.  

The police museum in the campus is a great way to learn about the history, evolution and services of the Kerala Police. It exhibits police uniforms, combat weapons, armory, badges and ranks, etc., with suitable description and display boards. All these are arranged in a chronological order, right from the colonial period to the present day.

There is a separate section which details the type of injuries inflicted by various weapons. 

The museum is located in Jew Town and is at a walkable distance from Mattancherry Synagogue. The Dutch Palace, the Jain Temple and an Antique Museum are some of the tourist places in the neighbourhood.
