Rajnath hails "women power" in Delhi Police with induction of all-women SWAT team

Rajnath hails

New Delhi, Aug 10 (UNI) The Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday expressed happiness over the fact that the Delhi Police has raised an All-Women SWAT Team by inducting 40 women Commandos for Anti-Terrorism duty under the Special Cell.

Trained by NSG, he said that the women SWAT commandos will be deployed during the Independence Day celebrations and congratulated Delhi Police for this initiative in the direction of women empowerment.

Presiding the induction ceremony, the Minister said that Delhi Police has given an opportunity to women to prove themselves by entrusting them with new responsibility. "All these women police personnel belong to the North Eastern states and it is as an example of integrating various regions in Delhi Police.

Keeping in mind the safety of women, he said that Rs. 10.13 crore have been released in 2017 for security initiatives including self-defence training to women. He also said that representation of women has increased in Police after the Centre’s decision to provide 33 percent reservation to women in police force at the constable to sub-inspector level in the UTs including Delhi.

The Home Minister said the citizens got benefitted by many other important schemes of Delhi Police. He quoted examples of ‘Eyes and Ear Scheme’ Prahari Yojana, Operation Milaap, Anti Auto Theft App, Online PCC, Senior Citizens App and Lost Report. All these schemes indicate new approach and modernisation of Delhi Police.

He said that a proposal to recruit 12,000 additional personnel in Delhi Police is under consideration, out of which, he added, approval has been given to recruit 3,139 police personnel. Besides, the Government has created 4,227 posts in the year 2016 and another 3,139 posts this year while separating the Crime Investigation from the Law & Order functions with an aim to improve the conviction rate.

Mr Singh said that Delhi Police, being the police of National Capital, needs to play a lead role. It should become a role model for the police of other States and UTs and the practices adopted by it should be among the best practices of police.

He also stressed upon the perceptional change of police. To fulfill this objective, the Home Minister directed that the senior officers should also go on patrolling with jawans on some occasions and motivate them to adopt a public friendly approach while taking part in their policing activities.

The Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal, Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and senior officers were present on the occasion.
