New Delhi: To ensure greater presence of women police personnel, the number of women personnel in police control room (PCR) vans will be increased to 500 in the capital, Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung said on Tuesday.
"Safety and security of women are necessary conditions for their greater participation in public life," Jung said during a meeting with women rights organisations and groups while discussing measures required to enhance safety and security of women in the capital.
The rights organisations raised concerns about the issues faced by women in the city and shared their views. They also offered suggestions to Jung on improving the safety and security of women in Delhi.
Jung said the issues raised would be segregated according to the implementing agency and timelines would be set to achieve long-term and short-term goals which would be reviewed within two months by him.
