Bengaluru police has tied up with Royal Enfield to launch all-women motorcycle riding brigade-'We for Women’. The brigade-on-wheels is dedicated towards making Bengaluru a safer city for women and children.

The brigade aims to break the gender stereotypes in the society around areas which has been considered to be male dominant.

Divya Sara Thomas, DCP, City Armed Reserve Headquarters, Bengaluru, who is leading the project, was quoted as saying: "We want these women to lead by example and inspire other women as well while keeping the city safe."

The team has 15 women police officers of the rank of Police Sub-Inspectors. There is one thing in common between all of them - a passion for riding.

These 15 women officers were trained in two phases. During the first phase of training in October they were introduced to Royal Enfield motorcycles including the Himalayan, Interceptor 650 and the Classic 350 Signals. This is probably the first instance when the Interceptor 650 will be inducted into the police fleet.

In the second phase in December and January, they were exposed to riding them in Bengaluru city traffic conditions.

The training was conducted in collaboration with Team Royal Enfield who aimed at equipping the women officers with the professional riding skills which would help them to confidently patrol the streets of Bengaluru.

To commemorate the newly formed brigade, a ride was conducted to Nandi hills. The ride was flagged off by Shri Bhaskar Rao, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Bengaluru city, at the office of City Armed Reserve Headquarters, Bengaluru.
