Kerala police introduced ‘Pink Beat’ patrols for enhancing the safety for women and children in public places. The Pink Beat includes specially trained women police personnel. These police personnel will patrol on KSRTC and private stage carriers and will be present at bus stops, schools, colleges and other public places.
The Pink Patrol cars have been equipped with GPS tracking devices as well as cameras installed on the front and rear sides of the vehicles. The camera sends continuous visuals to the control room. This patrol vehicle will be led by a women police officer and will have two other women police personnel. The patrol will be deployed in areas that have high presence of women and will function from 8 am to 8 pm.
These personnel not just monitor the insides of the crowded public buses for abuse , but also look out for anti-social activities at bus stops, schools and other vulnerable areas.
