Vadodara police have started a new initiative under which every police station will have a ‘she team’ comprising women police officers to redress women complainants.

The initiative was inaugurated by Gujarat home minister Pradeepsinh Jadeja at the Gandhi Nagar Gruh in Vadodara on Sunday. It has been started to enhance quick response to women’s complaints and act swiftly to give them justice.

While talking to reporters, Vadodara police commissioner Shamsher Singh said that the “She Team” will be the first respondents to women’s complaints arriving to the control room. After taking over charge earlier this month, I went through the data of last year which indicated that close to 6,500 complaints were from women — domestic violence, harassment and even sexual abuse at the hands of known and unknown persons. We immediately decided to form the She Team, which will be part of every police station… They will not only compassionately hear the complainant but also work at building confidence among victims of abuse to increase reporting of crime.”

Apart from women’s complaints, the ‘She Team’ will be responsible for senior citizens in their jurisdictions. The teams will also patrol open grounds and known spots of eve-teasing and reported incidents of molestation or harassment.
