The roving ‘SHE’ Team has kick started its functioning against the eve-teasers in every Telangana District from Wednesday following the encouraging results in Hyderabad, informed the Telangana police.


The 'SHE Team' officers are deployed near colleges and other public places. Earlier, the ‘SHE Team’ was set up by the Hyderabad Police to crack down on eve-teasers and stalkers last October.


Additional Director General of Police (CID) Satyanarain said that the initiative has been successful in Cyberabad and Hyderabad Police Commissionerate limits; the initiative will be expanding all over the state from Wednesday. The teams have created good impact in Hyderabad and Cyberabad by curbing eve-teasing and harassment with women coming forward to complain, said Satyanarain.


Swathi Lakra, a senior police officer, said that Hyderabad police have given training to these district-level teams and also are encouraging colleges to start self-defence training for girls. Ms Lakra said that over 300 cases have been registered in Hyderabad and Cyberabad with 33 offenders sentenced to jail and some others fined.


A SHE Team comprises of a male or female sub-inspector, a woman police constable along with three police constables who carry hidden cameras for video recording.
