Government of Punjab Launches Smartphone Application For Women’s Safety
The Special Monitoring Unit (SMU) by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has launched the Women’s Safety Smartphone Application (app) today on 4th January, 2017. SUM has introduced the Women’s safety app in collaboration with the Punjab Safe Cities Authority and the Punjab Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW).
The smartphone application has a special feature attached to the PCSW helpline, SMU’s Women-on-Wheels campaign and the police is provided with the touch of a button.
Law and Order SMU head Salman Sufi said that the Punjab Government is eager to introduce the Women’s Safety app to guarantee that women have an operative platform to report incidents of harassment.
The smartphone application for women’s safety is connected with the Punjab Women’s Helpline, allowing access to information on available laws and services for women. The app can also be used to address complaints of inaction or discrimination by government institutions.
This smartphone application will also permit women to inform the Police Integrated Command, Control and Communication (PPIC3) officials of any sort of harassment they have faced along with their exact geographic location. After the notification, a team of first responders will be sending off directly to the location.
