Innovation of Dungarpur SP Rashi Dogra: making tribal women strong as SP

Situations like crimes against women, girl children, trafficking and disappearance of girl children have been coming to the fore in tribal areas, but now some such innovations are being done in Dungarpur, which can change the situation in the coming times. District SP Rashi Dogra has started a campaign named Operation Divya Shakti here.
A campaign that has established a dialogue with women by linking with the existing administrative programme. This communication is now proving helpful to the police in getting information about criminals and criminal activities. Dogra aims to develop a strong information system empowering 10,000 women in the first phase.
SP Rashi Dogra said that the exposure of these women of the tribal areas is usually not there, but these women associated with the administrative program Rajivika Mission are moving towards becoming self-reliant. They are associated with microfinance, but they are neither able to face criminals nor stay away from crimes. Dogra said that we connected them to establish communication with the police on the pretext of government programs.
This dialogue is proving to be helpful in boosting their confidence. The police are constantly trying to make every woman in the district feel safe by coming near to the police, not to be afraid of criminals, but to provide criminal information immediately to the neighbourhood and any section of society.
SP Dogra said that there was a need to create a strong strategy and system to give a concrete shape to the campaign. I prepared the team structure by including the Additional SP and UNICEF, Women's Empowerment Department, Rajasthan Rural Livelihood Development Council, NGO Pido Mada and the police of the police stations.
Started connecting women, bringing them in contact with the police and training them in self-defence, cyber security and child protection. Police will reach out to around two lakh families of Rajivika including 12700 self-help groups of women, and 1553 self-help groups of mass education and development in a phased manner. Right now the target is to reach 10,000 women, out of which thousands have been trained.
Under this campaign in Dungarpur, SP Dogra started the orientation of police friends, village guards and security friends. A camp has been organized so far for all types of training including self-defence, and orientation. In the coming times, such camps are going to prove to be effective in preventing crimes like child crime, child labour and trafficking. Dogra says that this work is done by the administration, but the distance from the police does not enable women and children to stop the crimes being committed against them. In such a situation, the police are working to help them by training them.
