Ongole: Superintendent of Police Siddharth Kaushal inaugurated the new scooters dedicatedly allocated for the Shakti teams in the district on Friday. After flagging off the Shakti teams' motorcycles, the SP said that the Director-General of Police has launched the Shakti teams last year as part of the public friendly policing and since then, they were doing a wonderful job. He said that there were Shakti teams operating in all five subdivisions of police in the district.
As part of their responsibilities, the SP said that the Shakti teams would create awareness on the crime against women, encourage women to know their rights and empower them. He said that they would also be involved in the prevention of offenses like ragging, eve teasing, domestic violence, etc. He said that the Shakti teams are soft power of police and a new face in urban policing.
Siddharth said that the partnership of women in the policing was equally important with the men partnership and they are going to encourage the Shakti teams in the coming days by increasing their activity.
