"If there were women-related cases such as atrocities against women, rape or divorce, the women police must know how to handle these cases not only as investigation officers but also as legal advisers and effective counsellors."

The main objective of the programme was to make women police personnel efficient, legally sound and mould them as the best investigating officers.

They should also be made effective counsellors, said A. Pari, Superintendent of Police.

Patience, polite behaviour and anger management were essential in handling women-related cases.

Teamwork and collected case study were also important, he said. Vijayalakshmi, Coordinator and Additional Superintendent of Police, gave tips on how to write the First Information Report perfectly.

The main objective of wearing civil dress was to sink differences between officers and police personnel to enable them to discuss freely and share their thoughts, said Geetha Devi, Sub-inspector, All Women Police Station, Nilakottai.
