Women police personnel will also be trained as beat officers to strengthen grassroot policing, Lt Governor Kiran Bedi said on Wednesday.

She said women personnel would equally police the streets as their male counterparts.

In a WhatsApp message to media persons at the end of a meeting she had with women police personnel at the police training centre here, Bedi said she had obtained feedback from the women personnel to several queries she raised in the form of a questionnaire.

She wanted to know in writing as to how the women police felt about their service since the training they had at the centre and got posted in police stations.

"It was an anonymous feedback I had from the cops to read their feeling and also state of their mind and difficulties they faced," Bedi said.

She said she specifically asked them as to how their families and parents felt about they being in police service.

The former IPS officer said the women pointed out that they had the support of their families.

A majority of the women felt that there was a need to inculcate better sense of law abiding habits among people.

The women also wanted to learn Hindi and French so that they could easily respond to tourists better, Bedi said.

They also wanted training in technology and Crime and Criminal Tracking Networking Systems.

Bedi said in her message that a joint meeting of all police Beat Officers would be held at Raj Nivas as part of the Pongal harvest festival celebrations in January.
