The police team for the same will comprise of three male and three female officers and they will be on duty for 12 hours from 8 am to 8 pm every day. Each team will include a sub-inspector and four constables who will take rounds of the city on both two and four-wheelers.
Even though this initiative was launched on trial basis in January this year, police has now decided to have more than one team for it. To ensure public participation, police on Monday invited college students, traders and doctors to take part in the ceremony to mark the inauguration of the service. Also present at the event were IG Alok Sharma, DIG Ramit Sharma, SSP Subhash Singh Baghel and SP (rural) M M Beg.
Deputy SP and the nodal officer for these teams, Simranjit Kaur said, “The police officers have been given two camcorders which they will use in doing spot recordings whenever they witness a case of eve-teasing. They will further nab the miscreants and the recordings will be used as evidence.”
