Women Cops to Man Traffic for the First time in Jammu
ANI Jammu

Jammu Sep.10 (ANI): For the first time in Jammu and Kashmir the women cops are seen rubbing shoulders with their male counterparts in regulating traffic. The Jammu and Kashmir Police have decided to use services of Women Cops in regulating traffic as vehicle population is burgeoning with every passing year and creating frequent Chaos and confusion in Jammu.

This is another strong step to recognize the potential of women in the state. 50 constables have been shifted from Armed Police to man traffic in the city along with their 350 male counterparts making the total strength to 400. Female cops are working in two shifts .... From 8 am to 2 pm and 2 pm to 8 pm.

"Day by day more and more women are driving while going to Schools, colleges and offices. In order to educate ladies, lady cop is a must. When Male member (cop) uses to stop the vehicle some people complaint that they misbehave but lady cop can't misbehave. We are educating them on how to check the documents and how to stop the vehicles as we have to consider our security also" said Anita Chopra DTI Jammu

The initiative is taken by Jammu and Kashmir police Department to empower women on roads. This initiative will decrease the number of incidents in which girls are being harassed on roads. This will help women folk to openly speak up their problems with the women cops on roads.

"We are very comfortable as compare to male cops. We are unable to cope up with male members when they stop us and we didn't feel the freedom. But due to the appointment of female cops we are feeling good as we can communicate properly with them." Said Vaishali Singh

This initiative will definitely improve the level of satisfaction while driving on roads especially for women. Women would now face no problems in dealing with these female cops or getting the information about rules and regulations to be followed during driving.

"Now they (female cops) are very much adjusted. They are doing good work. We are getting good response from civilians. More and more women are driving nowadays before when cops use to stop them they start weeping but now due to our presence they are feeling satisfied and secured." Said Shaheeda Khan DTI

Women folk are now provided a chance to show their worth in areas which were otherwise considered to be fit for men only and women cops are working efficiently to prove it.

Civilians are even showing gesture of happiness after appointment of female cops especially women drivers. This step will definitely improve the traffic situation in the city.
