Local security initiative with Kalkan Jandarma discontinued

Kalkan Jandarma Kalkan Jandarma

In 2010 the Kalkan Jandarma started a local initiative whereby property owners could register their details with them and be given a unique ID number so that in an emergency situation this could be used to quickly locate someone in their property.

They thought this would be especially helpful to foreigners who don't speak Turkish as in theory all you would have to do is give your unique ID number and the Jandarma would know exactly where to go.

Scores of people registered but for whatever reason it did not attract sufficient numbers and it was barely used.

We visited the Jandarma station recently and discovered that the system has been discontinued, so if you are one of those people who registered please take note.

It's unfortunate that this scheme was not more widely used.  We know that it worked because we had to use it - maybe we were the only ones that ever did - and the Jandarma were there in no time.  Perhaps it's a case of if you don't use it you lose it.

Please note that this has nothing to do with GIYKIMBIL.
