Panaji: Against the backdrop of the Delhi gang-rape case, the Goa Police have reworked its response to crime against women by commissioning a helpline, mapping vulnerable areas and redistributing women police force at various police stations.
The helpline 1091 has been commissioned from today in the central police control room, which will entertain the cases against women and help those in distress, Superintendent of Police (crime) OP Mishra told reporters here today.
"The calls received by the central police control room will be immediately transferred to the nearest police control room vans as well as respective jurisdictional police stations for further necessary action," Mishra said.
Police have also begun mapping vulnerable areas in each of the police stations where there is more possibility of crime against women.
"Individual police station incharges will map these areas based on their feedback," he said.
The department will also ensure that every police station has 2-3 women police constables and lady head constable, he said.
The police station incharges have also been made to spend time between 4.30-5.30 pm every day to listen to the grievances of the people, the SP added.
