Women Corner

The District Police firmly believes that crime could be eradicated to some extent by creating awareness among women. Women should consider these preventive measures to avoid stressful situations:
  • Be aware of your surroundings - know who's around you and what's going on. Walk with confidence and purpose. Be wary of isolated spots basements, laundry rooms, and parking lots
  • Whether at a hotel/restaurant or house party, make arrangements with trusted friends to look out for each other
  • Make sure your home is not an easy target for criminals and take proper arrangements to make your home safer
  • If you come home and see a door or a window broken, call the police immediately. Never enter the dwelling
  • If you have car trouble on road/highway/motorway call at 15 for Rescue Office, 130 for Motorway Police and 1122 for Rescue Emergency. This will bring you official assistance
  • If a stranger stops to assist you, use caution. If concerned, get back in the car. Speak through a slightly lowered window and ask that person to get assistance for you
  • If you think you're being followed, change directions and look for open stores, restaurants, public place or a lighted home, call the police as soon as possible.
  • Above all, if your instincts tell you that someone’s actions are threatening or an environment is unsafe, leave immediately
  • In order to avoid sexual harassment be aware of the fact
  • Assault can occur anytime and anyplace, and can happen to any female
  • Those who commit an assault can be anyone - strangers, neighbors, spouses, partners, co-workers, classmates, family members and even friends.
  • The majority of assaults occur in an environment familiar to the victim e.g. home, office, school, dormitory, etc
