The Kerala Police has launched the "Pink Protection Project" to protect women in public, private and digital spaces. The project was flagged off by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in which ten cars, 40 two-wheelers including Royal Enfield bikes and 20 bicycles were allotted. The project aims to prevent dowry-related issues, cyber-bullying, and harassment in public places. The Pink Police Patrol System is one of the 10 components of the project. The components include Pink Janamaithri beat, Pink control room, Pink Shadow, Pink Romeo, counselling facilities and a dedicated mobile application for women protection.T he police will conduct regular home visits to keep a check on the cases of domestic violence.


The mission has been categorised under "Pink Janamaithri Beat". Under this, police officials can collect data from the panchayat members, neighbours, and locals to report to the Station Head Officer (SHO) for further action. Specially trained women officers will be deployed Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) operations and other private buses outside schools, colleges, and other public spaces. Pink control rooms have already been set up in 14 districts for better coordination.
