The process of transferring the site to the police department is under way.

Puttur is the second largest city in Dakshina Kannada after Mangaluru.

The police will be able to effectively handle situations as distance will be less from here. The department will be able to develop good relationships with the local people. There will be less pressure as distance to be covered in case of exigencies will be less.
