At an event held last week at DDA park in Sector 3, Dwarka, police officials along with volunteers from social organisation Choti Si Khushi helped over 70 women download the app.
In a bid to promote Delhi Police’s women’s safety app—Himmat Plus— in Dwarka, local police is organising awareness drives these days in neighbourhood parks talking about the various features and benefits of the app.
One such event was recently organised at DDA park in Sector 3 last week where volunteers from social organisation, Choti Si Khushi, along with police mitra, Indu Garg, and local police helped over 70 women and girls download the app.
Talking to City Spidey, Indu Garg said, “We met a lot of women at the event and helped them understand how the app can act as SOS helpline for them. It is a very user-friendly app. Over the coming months, we will be organising more such events.”
Apart from locals, the event was attended by several members of resident welfare associations (RWAs) of the area. The volunteers demonstrated how to download the app and how to use it in case of an emergency.
Namita Chaudhary, secretary of Choti Si Khushi, said, “We are here to help both the locals as well as police. More such programmes will be held in future to make people understand how they can ensure their own safety.”
ACP Dwarka Rajender Singh told City Spidey that the involvement of social organisation has helped the programme. “In the past, we have held such programmes with RWAs but now we are focusing on getting the community people involved.”
