It’s first ever initiative taken by Mumbai police to tackle crime against women. This initiative is first of its kind in the country wherein all armed female police officials will patrol the city streets on bikes.
Inaugurating the initiative, Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil said, “Even as some serious crimes occurred here, if you go by the statistics, Mumbai and Maharashtra are considered to be safest in the country. He further says “Mumbai police stood first in the country to take up such initiative and I am sure the squads will bring down crimes against women and make women feel safer in the city.”
Mumbai Police introduced 205 women beat marshals and this is inspired from the male beat marshals which was introduced by Mumbai Police in 2003.
