Scooter-borne women will be patrolling Noida streets

Aug 02, 2020 17:38 IST

To ensure greater safety for women in Noida and Greater Noida, the Gautam Buddh Nagar police on Saturday launched special scooter-borne patrolling units run by women cops. Called Swayam Siddha, these patrol groups will patrol areas like metro stations, auto stands, schools, colleges and areas with large female footfall. These women patrol officers will be given a baton, a body camera along with arms which will stay hidden. These units will patrol during the day to start with, but changes may be made to their duty timings based on feedback. 50 units were flagged off on Saturday and 163 hotspots have been identified by residents.
