Bengaluru: The city traffic police want to ensure that women personnel in the department take up more responsible roles, and soon more police women will be seen regulating traffic at important junctions in the city.

The traffic policewomen will also be trained to ride two-wheelers and drive four-wheelers. At a recent parade, the entire Bengaluru Traffic Police contingent consisted of only women and it was appreciated by senior police officers. During the parade, the women personnel demanded that they be given more important and responsible work.

 

A senior police officer from the department said, “Our women personnel requested for more work and we were also thinking that they could handle more responsibilities. We are now planning to identify junctions with heavy traffic and continuous movement of vehicles, and post our women personnel there.”

He said, “Our women staffers are well trained in regulating traffic and now we want them to get trained in driving and riding, using computers and related software and being writers at traffic police stations, which is an important and responsible work. We have planned several initiatives for the women personnel and will ensure that they be given important tasks in the coming days.”

A woman traffic constable, who did not want to be named, said, “We want to do more work, but important tasks are assigned only to male officers. We are equally capable of doing any work. We informed Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Harishekaran and he assured us that he will do all he can to prove that women are no lesser than men. That itself was encouraging for us.”
