THE MILLENNIUM city was facing many heinous crimes against women in the recent past, and in-spite of all efforts no drop in these crimes was seen. But now city police has decided to take proactive steps to ensure the safety and security for the working women of the city. In order to ensure safety, the Gurgaon police will visit BPOs and other corporate houses periodically and meet the women employees to know the exact nature of their problems.
In their latest campaign Gurgaon Police plans to visit all these companies to know what safety issues working women are facing right now. Their transport, travelling and other issues will be noted down and will be worked upon in due course of time.
On the first day of the campaign DCP (west) Maheshwar Dayal and ACP (DLF) Bhupendra Singh visited IBM and other offices on Thursday. "We have started a drive to improve measures for women's security, as well as to increase awareness and self-confidence in them. We would interact with the IT firms, BPOs and corporate houses twice a month regularly in different companies. Providing a fair and free environment with regard to safety and security of women in Gurgaon is the motto of our campaign," Dayal told TOI.
They also had visited companies such as Sunlife financial and IBM and spoke to company officials about the safety and security measures for their women employees and took many suggestions from them during the interaction and promised to work on those.
NASSCOM Haryana Council is also supporting Gurgaon Police in this task of the safety of women employees, locals and coming from outside and working in city. Subinder Khurana, Chairman, NASSCOM Regional Council, Haryana, told TOI, "One of the critical gaps we saw was the lack of confidence the general public, especially women, had in approaching police for help. This is what has prompted the DCP to seek meetings with women employed in the IT-BPO industry. We will continue to work with the Gurgaon police to improve measures for women's security, as well as increase awareness and confidence among our employees."
