The measures included the launching of cloud telephony based virtual number, tele-counselling and among others, she added.
Ms Swati Lakra, Additional Director-General of Police, Women Safety, Telangana Police, who was part of the initial team that launched Bharosa Center in Hyderabad City Police in 2014 stated that the best practice from this Center is now being replicated across the other districts.
The government had sanctioned the setting up of Bharosa centers in all major police districts in the state and many were already operational, she added.
