Want to report violence? - Mahila Police Volunteer

Very often women who are victim of violence or harassment find it difficult to approach the police or other authorities to get help or support. Mahila Police Volunteers (MPV) will serve as a public-police interface in order to fight crime against women. The broad mandate of a MPV is to report incidences of violence against women such as domestic violence, child marriage, dowry harassment and violence faced by women in public spaces. She will act as a role model for the community. This is an initiative developed by the Ministries of Women and Child Development in collaboration with Ministry of Home Affairs. The MPVs will be chosen by the Home Department of the concerned State/UT through the Superintendent of Police of the district. The MPV will directly report to the Circle Inspector in the Police Thana.
