‘Power Angels’ as a concept, is indigenous to Women Power Line 1090, and aims to foster a police- citizen partnership to create safer public spaces for women. The Power Angels will be appointed as special police officers who will be entrusted with the task of acting as a link between the police and the society, of enabling better communication between the police and women from various rural and urban areas, spread awareness regarding women’s concerns and build up an atmosphere of trust and cooperation
Power Angels, will act as the face of 1090 in the society. The idea is to empower and motivate women and girls, to speak up against harassment, register a strong voice and not find themselves at the receiving end of societal victimization, alienation or pressures that refrain them from registering their dissent. By appointing Power Angels we aim to generate this informal support system from within their surroundings comprising of women and girls just like them. It is therefore essential for the Power Angels to be dedicated towards the cause of women and 1090, and effectively manifest themselves as friends and confidantes of the girls so as to be able to constructively engage, motivate, help, and also connect them to 1090.
