Chowky (hindijščina: चौकी chaukee, tudi chowkey, chauky in chauki) je policijska delovna postaja, vrata ali policijski predal v indijski policiji in je osnovna enota policijskih postaj na katerem koli območju.[1]. Vsak chowky je pod nadzorom sub-inšpektorja.[2]. V državni policijski službi je na primer običajno več delovnih postaj kot policijskih postaj, na primer v Maharaštri[3].

While the poor, uneducated section fears the strong-arm tactics of the police and feels they are the right people to solve minor issues like petty robbery or assault, the more affluent and powerful section of the slum has scant regard for the police constable or even the Sub-Inspector in charge of the Chowky, for they know that the police can easily be bribed or transferred if they do not fall in line with the wishes of these slum lords."
