Kerala has been long known for shattering the glass ceiling, be it their high rate of female literacy or safety standards for women in the country.

Of late the southern state is being hailed for its management of coronavirus, stringent policing and advanced healthcare systems.

To ensure the extended lockdown is implemented effectively, Thrissur police has formed a special women-only bike squad.

The women cops in the squad are given Royal Enfield Motorcycles for patrolling purposes along with colour co-ordinated helmets for safety and easy identification.

The lady cops learned to ride bikes earlier this year.

The primary task of this special squad is to enforce the lockdown along with helping the elderly, women and children in need.

Under the community policing initiative announced a few years ago to bridge the gap between police and public, the squad has been formed under the Janamaithri Suraksha Project of Kerala Police.

Not just Kerala police, Royal Enfield motorcycles have been an integral part of various law enforcement agencies across the globe including the Indian armed forces.

The brand Royal Enfield pitches itself as the oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production, produced munitions, artillery equipment, and motorcycles during both World Wars.

Earlier this year, CRPF women bikers showcased daredevilry at Republic day parade on their Royal Enfield Classic 350s.
