The helpline number for women, 1091, is a round-the-clock service made available for women at all district Police Control Rooms in Haryana.
In an effort to join the campaign started by the Police Departments of Delhi and Chandigarh, Haryana Police implemented the decision taken on October 12 in a meeting presided over by Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Chief Minister, Haryana to instill confidence and a sense of security amongst women in the state.
Dalal said, "This helpline number is accessible from anywhere nationally or internationally and exclusive women police officials have been deputed in each Police Control Room (PCR) to attend to their complaints round the clock".
This specially deputed staff will not only receive calls but will also further inform the nearest police station or police post or PCR vehicle to immediately respond, he added.
He also made a fervent appeal to the women of the state by asking them to call on 1091 for immediate police help, whenever they are in trouble.
