After this, it was reformed as Reserved Armed Police by replacement of 8 Companies of Malabar Special Police and Special Armed Police with its Head quarters at Manimuthar. On the eve of reorganization of state on linguistic basis, the Malabar Special Police was divided into two, one for Kerala and the other for Madras state. The Headquarters of MSP or (Madras state) Tamilnadu was shifted to Trichy for maintaining the law and orders situation as per GO No. 4112(Home) Dept dt. 07.11.1947.
