KOCHI CITY POLICE AWARD-2008 - WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO KEEP OUR LOCALITY NEAT &CLEAN AND SAFE & PEACEFUL.. This is organised under PRIDE (Police and Residence association Initiative in District Ernakulam).

This is what Mr. L. N. Sethumadhavan, General Secretary of KRA has to say about his association, activities and team members:

In Karikkamuri Residents Association (KRA), Kochi,Kerala, we firmly believe in the motto that “ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS ”. We have adopted Total Quality Management (TQM) methodology. To present what we have done to keep our locality “neat & clean and safe & peaceful”, we have to only collect existing documents, forms, correspondence, photos etc.

Since ours is a system oriented TQM path, NO extra documents had to be prepared for the report asked by Kochi City Police as part of their interaction with society. Based on this report and actual audit, Karikkamuri Residents Association bagged the prestigious Kochi City Police Award-2008 on 12th January 2008. The award was presented by Kerala Home Minister Mr.Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. The Award carries Rs.25000/ in cash plus a free return air ticket for Singapore.

Leadership roles, Vision & Strategy, Mission, Objectives, Goals, Processes, Activities, Pain areas, Thrust areas, Improvement initiatives, Core values etc are well defined and documented. Plan-Do-Check-Act, known as P-D-C-A cycle is making all our initiatives effective and sustainable.
