Woman Beat Marshalls

Woman Beat Marshalls today ingratiation scheme at Mumbai Police in Mumbai on Wednesday
Mumbai police today got the all-women beat marshal squads, a first-of-its-kind initiative in the country wherein armed female police personnel will patrol the city streets on bikes, specifically to tackle crime against women.

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. 

By introducing 205 women beat marshals, 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 more safe in the city," Patil said.

The initiative is based on the beat marshal system, comprising male police personnel, which was introduced by Mumbai police in 2003.
