To begin with the district police have set up 12 SHE teams and they will be roaming in all corners of the district in mufti and will keep an eye on the miscreants who indulge in mischievous behaviour with the girls and women folks. Any one if encountered with any kind of problem they can dial 100 and inform the police. The SHE teams will be ever ready to reach the spot and take the culprits into custody, said Dr Chetana,

Unlike earlier, now the college girls, working women and women in the society are feeling safe and the incidences of violence against women have also drastically reduced because of the effective services of SHE teams. In Narayanpet, the SHE teams will be in mufti and will be roaming in all corners of the district and will keep an eye on the miscreants who are harassing the college girls, working women and even women who are being subjected to house hold violence will also get the protection of SHE teams. If any incident of harassment against women is reported the SHE teams will act swiftly and arrest the culprits and book cases against them and take all necessary legal action to punish the culprits,” said the SP.
