Hyderabad: Rachakonda Police today celebrated SHE Teams third anniversary. On the occasion, SHE for Her-II program was initiated.

Rachakonda SHE Team launched the new program to create a safer environment for girl students inside the colleges too. Police said public places have already taken care of by SHE teams by decoy operation to create a safer environment. But still, the girl students of the colleges were not coming forward to reach police when they are becoming victims of eve-teasing.

To overcome this problem, two senior girl students would be selected from each college and they will undergo orientation training and empowered with awareness of Laws & Acts for Crime Against Women. Then they will be nominated as “SHE FOR HER” for the college so that any girl from the college can approach police through SHE FOR HER. The students will act as a bridge between the police and students. They can help other students with the information of how they can reach police.

The program was launched in the Rachakonda Commissionerate on July 6 this year at IICT Auditorium at Nacharam and was successfully running in all colleges, IT firms and offices under the Commissionerate. So far, SHE for HER volunteers reported 13 cases of women harassment. At present, there are 321 SHE for HER volunteers. The second training session for SHE for HER students for 170 volunteers was conducted today at IICT Auditorium at Nacharam. During the last three years, Rachakonda SHE Teams caught 1,374 eve-teasers, including 145 minors and 1,229 majors and booked 1,217 cases.
