New Delhi: For women in distress, Delhi
Police is now just a click away.

In a bid to make police more approachable, the Special
Police Unit Women and Children (SPUWC) today launched its
official website here.
Launching the website, National Commission of Women
(NCW) Chairperson Mamta Sharma said this initiative should be
replicated in all the states across country.

"There are many laws and acts in our country but lack
of implementation is the reason for problems faced by women",
Sharma said.

"This pattern is a step toward implementing policies. This
pattern followed by Delhi Police to help women should be
replicated by all the states so that a women at Panchayat and
block level can also benefit from it", Sharma said.
Emphasising the need of communicating in local languages
with the women and children, she said that a website should
also be made available in Hindi.

"This website should be translated in Hindi, that ways
more people will be able to utilise it", Sharma said.

The website will help women in getting all the information
about redressal and process of complaint filing at SPUWC, said
Suman Nalwa, Additional DCP SPUWC. "We are available on
Facebook and Twitter also, you can contact us through any
medium", Nalwa said.

A booklet titled "Your Right at SPUWC" was also released
by Tripurari Saran Director General Doordarshan.

U K Choudhary, Additional CP SPUWC, Arvind Deep Jt CP
