India’s first ever (and could be world’s first ever) 36 member all women S.W.A.T. team was part of the extensive security arrangements for the Independence day at Red Fort. This SWAT team is part of Delhi Police which oversees Independence Day security at the Red Fort.
A successful SWAT team member – man or woman needs to go through harsh physical and mental training for over 12 months on weapons handling, counter-terrorism amongst other things.
The 36 member team, all women constables are from our North-Eastern states – wear the prized blue uniforms and always carry lethal guns. So ALL Delhiites – a call to action –> GIVE YOUR BEST WISHES AND MAKE THEM FEEL AT HOME IN YOUR CITY... The more at home they are – the more effective they will be in protecting You!

In its drive to curb crime against women, Delhi Police has roped in religious figures to counsel men found harassing women in public places in the national capital. Under its ‘Operation Shishtachar’ Delhi Police lady personnel in plain clothes will also patrol public places to keep a watch on men harassing women. “We have adopted a two-pronged strategy including legal action and counselling. We have also involved religious figures in the counselling besides experts from the field of psychology and law,” said a senior police officer.
