Each SHE team consists of 3 men constables and 1 women constable, who will work in mufti.
The SHE teams were launched in the district in March last year and as part of the action plan, first two months were aimed to create awareness among the public on SHE teams formation and it’s functioning at places like educational institutions, bus stands, auto stands and public gathering centres.
From third month onwards, along with awareness meetings the SHE teams launched operations to put a check to eve-teasers in the district. The officers concerned requested the public, particularly girls and women, brave enough to inform the police about eve teasers. DSP Sunitha Mohan thanked District SP Vikram Jeet Duggal for his support and cooperation from day one since the formation of SHE teams.
The jeep of the SHE team was also playing a vital role on par with the staff with its uniqueness. High definition spy cameras were arranged to the vehicle which records the happenings in the surrounding areas when it stopped and while traveling also to trace out eve teasers and anti-social elements.
