Kottayam West Police Station is known to be the first Police Station in Kottayam Taluk and one of the oldest Police Stations in the state. The exact date opening of this Police Station is not known. It is believed that, this station was started functioning for about 150 years. In 1056 (Malayalam era), the erstwhile Travancore State was divided into Taluks. Then a Police Station was opened at all Taluk Head Quarters with jurisdiction over the whole Taluk. This station was functioned in the Taluk Office building built in the year 1068 (Malayalam era). It was on the western side of the Kottayam Reading Room Junction from where the Kottayam –Kumily road starts. Originally, the whole of Kottayam Taluk was under the Kottayam West Police Station with one OP at Pambady. In 1088, the OP at Pambady was upgraded into Charging Station and the Village of Pambady and Akalkkunnam were added to it. On 01.07.1950, the Station area was bifurcated and the Kanjikuzhy Station (present Kottayam East) was formed and the villages of Panachikkadu, Nattakam, Ayarkunnam, Manarkadu, Puthuppally and the portion of Vijayapuram Village were added to it. In 1964, the OP at Kumarakam was upgraded into a Charging Station. The OP at Thiruvarppu was also added to Kumarakam Police Station. Thus the Villages of Aymanam, Kumarakam and Thiruvarppu which were under this Station were brought under Kumarakam Police Station. Kottayam West Police Station was functioning in the Northern Wing of the building in which the Kottayam Taluk Office was also housed. Subsequent to the transfer of the above building with 75 cents of land to Kottayam Muncipality for constructing a Shopping Centre, the Police Station was shifted temporarily to the Western portion of the same building as per GO(Rt) No. 2321/80/Home dated 30.10.80 and SRO 1044/80. The Police Station was then shifted from Kottayam Town to the new building constructed by KPHCS on the banks of Kodoor River, near Kodimatha on 13.01.2006 in 50 cents (20.2342 Ares) of land in No.145 A in Ward No. XIV of Kottayam Municipality in Sy.
