The Gorgeous And Smart IPS Officer Merin Joseph

Merin Joseph is the officer at Indian Police Services. She became IPS of Kerala Cadre when she was only of 25. That is Impressive !

Merin Joseph one of the gorgeous IPS officer gained popularity before taking any district under her charge. Her photos became viral on social media like Facebook as beautiful Police officer.Keeping aside all this publicity Merin completed her training in Ernakulam Rural District, Chengammanad station.
However, all those publicity seems to be working in her favour. Whenever she used to address people , she would find an interested audience, this gave her  very good opportunity to spread her message and agenda across effectively.


Merin was the youngest IPS officer of Kerala cadre. When she cleared the UPSC exam she was only 25 at that time.

Merin doesn’t seem to be a prototypic type of an IPS officer, rather she was tiny with no harsh rule. Merin is married to Dr. Chris Abraham, and resides happily with her husband in her Government Guest House, Kochi. Merin’s love for English Language can be easily seen from her Facebook page. Talking about this Merin says that reading books is the only hobby that she can pursue with her easily.

Talking about her job Merin says that she always wanted a dynamic job; dressed in uniform and hair tied back and an respectable designation. Merin says that becoming IPS officer was her second dream first was IAS. Talking about her exam she said that clearing the exam in just one attempt was not that though for her as she had streamlined her preparations.Becoming IAS or IPS officer was her very old childhood dream so she was focused about that.She did her BA and MA in History From St. Stephen’s College, Delhi.Her parents have been settled in Delhi for over 35 years. So she was entirely brought up in Delhi. Both her parents were from working class. Her father was from Ranni and was the Principal Advisor in the Ministry of Agriculture and her mother belonged from Kottayam and was an economics teacher.


Merin says that she was very happy to get posted in Kerala as hardly an officer get the chance of working in there home town. Merin was very comfortable working in Kerala.After R. Srelekha and B. Sandhya Merin was third women Malayali IPS officer from Kerala cell. She says that IPS training does harden one’s soul. The training makes you realize that you are made of tougher material.A very distinctive day starts at about 4:45 a.m and it involves running 4-5 km. This was followed by Horse riding, weapons training, swimming, driving, 40 km route marches, jungle attachments (living in jungle with minimum supplies) and such are part of the training.Those candidate who are not athletically inclined for them its very tough task in the beginning. As your body is not used to rigorous activity you might get minor injuries too says Merin , when asked about the training period.

Although today women have touched every strata of society but Merin says that this profession is still very male dominated . She is 99% surrounded by men all the time.She found that she had to be more simple and cool minded. She admitted that her sub-ordinates officer accepted her very well. But still the real challenge is in the domain of hardcore policing.

In order to be a good police officer one has to be on call 24/7, being there for people all the time. This same was the agenda of Merin. Although she was living in Delhi from childhood , she had a working knowledge of Malayalam (not so perfect) but had a good acquaintance with the language.

Merin was selected from the Sardar Vallabhai Patel National Police Academy to lead the Indian delegation for the Y20 summit. Y20 is an official youth engagement programme of the G20 Countries which believe in the power of youth.Talking about the youth of today Merin said that today’s youth are technology professing as we grew up in the age of the internet. Ans we need more young people in the services as the youth can bring in a breath of fresh air to the way Government departments function. It is the youth that can really change the system and rectify it in proper manner.


The Eranakulam Rural SP Yathish Chandra, to whom Merin reports, had already created a buzz on social media himself with his so called ” singham style’. As tho days youth are more active on social media it is more convenient to connect to them through the same.It is good thing as by this even police officers will be able to inspire the public.Taking about her charm she said it is not bad in looking good and being an icon till the time you are doing your job excellently.
Encouraging the women Merin said that more women should come into police.Even the job looks like physically demanding and tough but is rewarding too.She says that she always try to encourage young girls to join this profession and serve for the nation.At her very young age Merin is truly an inspiration for other women in society.
