The Coimbatore City Police on Monday received a high-end police vehicle with audio-visual equipment to raise awareness on crimes against women and children.

Sources said that this was one of the two vehicles flagged off by Chief Minister M.K. Stalin on December 6 in Chennai. The Tamil Nadu Police has allocated one vehicle for the Greater Chennai Police and other for the Coimbatore City Police.

With an estimated worth of ₹ 40 lakh, the vehicle is fitted with a large LED screen on its side, which would be used to screen pre-loaded videos related to the prevention of sexual harassment of women and children. The vehicle is also equipped with high-quality speakers and CCTV cameras, the sources said.

The vehicle is likely to be used for community policing and for awareness programmes in public places and educational institutions. It will travel across the district.
