The police department has announced the introduction of a Short Message Service (SMS) as the second step of the telligp E-mail service, which was introduced a year ago for the convenience of the people.
This SMS service will be introduced on September 3 to coincide with Police Day and would help people to contact the police via any mobile phone network.
They don't even pickup phone calls, so what makes you think they'll see our SMS?

SMS should send in Sinhala or in English

This is a good move but executing it would be difficult. Police might end up receiving a large number of unncessary messages. Hope there is a mechanism in place to track those who abuse the facility.

Generally the 911 responds very rarely. The SMS affair will also have the same effect. People have lost faith in Police service. We are a very unfortunate lot in this blessed land.
