Jaipur (Rajasthan) Mar. 5 : Rajasthan has become India's first state to have all-women staff police station.

In this police station, at least 22 police personnel have been deployed and each of them is a woman right from police constable to Station House Officer (SHO).

The main idea to commission such police station is to provide a place for female victims where they can share their grievances without any difficulty.

"When a woman comes to file a complaint, there is a stigma in her mind whether a male police officer would understand her problem or he would in turn blame her. Here we are trying that each and every staff is a woman and therefore those women coming to file complaint will feel comfortable," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Kunwar Rastradeep.

He further said that women barracks are being constructed along with creches for their children.

"I believe this would be the first police station where each and every staff will be a woman," Rastradeep said.

The police station would be formally opened on March 8, International Women's Day.
