Delhi Police takes initiative to create awareness about HIMMAT PLUS APP

To strengthen safety & security of girl students an introductory session was organized on August 3rd, 2018 at SPJ Auditorium, South Campus, New Delhi by South-West District in association with Special Police Unit for Women and Children (SPUWAC), about the use of HIMMAT PLUS APP & Self Defense program.

Total 300 girl students attended the session. During the session, all the students were briefed by Additional DCP-I Ms. Monika Bhardwaj about the use of HIMMAT PLUS APP through a presentation. The app can be downloaded from both platform i.e. Android and IOS.

While explaining the work of the app, Additional. DCP-I Ms. Monika Bhardwaj informed the students that after downloading the app, a new user has to register with the Delhi Police website by sharing their name, mobile number and that of a minimum of two relatives/friends. Once the User is registered, the user will get an SMS on mobile number given at the time of registration with a download link and registration key. The User has to enter this key in the registration window in the application. This is a one-time process.

In case of any emergency, the user can send an alert by shaking her phone or by pressing the power button/soft button. As soon as the distress button is pressed, it will trigger a 30-second audio and video recording on the phone which will be relayed to the Police Control Room, and the victim will get a call back from the Police Control Room.

Later a self-defense program followed up by Nukud Natak performed by Asmita Theater Group was also organized to make students aware as to how girls and women are subjected to sexual abuse and domestic violence and their role in pre-empting the abuse. They were also informed about the Women Helpline.

The participants were very enthusiastic and serious about understanding the issues and attended the programme. On sharing their feedback, the participants expressed confidence and appreciated holding of the programme.
