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?

    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.

    Yep, through Dialog'smobile payment

    Abilashan Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:33 AM

    Good system but im not sure about our jovial people, they might make funny and prank of this things.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:45 AM

    Wow, so we can expect the cops to reply the SMS in English saying "we are on our way"! Unbelievable!!

    Amila.G Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:44 AM

    System stinks, while more are introduced.

    Bonnie Mallie Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:17 AM

    Can we pay bribe also through SMS?

    Muhandiram Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:23 AM

    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.

    prasanna Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:13 AM

    SMS should send in Sinhala or in English

    M.S. Fernando Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:21 AM
