Telangana: The Telangana Police has got its first ‘child-friendly’ police station at Medipally in Hyderabad and the Rachakonda police formally inaugurated the premises on Thursday. The police station was designed and has built-in collaboration with NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), founded by Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi.
BBA said in a press release that the child-friendly police station was decorated with wall paintings, furnished with beds and water coolers to make children visiting the police stations, comfortable and feel relaxed. In addition to this, the presence of books, toys, and games in these rooms will aid in making children less anxious.
As part of the joint action, BBA will also arrange a training session to raise awareness, sensitize and inform police personnel on the guidelines laid down by the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).
In a statement, BBA CEO Mr. Samir Mathur said, “We praise this excellent initiative undertaken by the Telangana Police department. Child-friendly police stations play a vital role in ensuring that every child has proper and timely access to justice. These police stations promise a facilitating environment and also inspire higher reporting of crimes relating to children.
He added saying that we are pleased to partner with the Telangana government and hope that our strong alliance will be conducive to bringing justice to children in the state.
The Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mr. Mahesh Bhagwat was the Chief Guest for the inauguration, which witnessed the participation of over 200 students from nearby schools, personnel of the police department, and members of the State Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR), Child Welfare Committee (CWC), District Child Protection Unit (DCPU) and District Legal Service Authority (DLSA).
The city already has a child-friendly court, thanks to the Bharosa center, an integrated support center for women and children that was established by the city police in 2016. The Bharosa center was set up shortly after the SHE Teams initiative, which was introduced in the state in 2014 with a slogan to provide safety and security to women and to control crimes against women.
