While some are complimenting the policewomen as the 'beautiful officer'others are complaining it to be unethical to lure tourists using beautiful policewomen.
Some even noted the policemen uniform remains the same, unlike the policewomen. While Twitter had a mix reaction on the latest introduction, one of the police officers Samata Saad said she was enjoying her job.
Another policewoman said, “We came willingly to this work and we have accepted it with enthusiasm and we still hope that it will return in every summer season."
