Personal safety app for women launched in Bengaluru
Women in Bengaluru can get police assistance for emergencies with the help of an app on their smartphones.
A personal safety app called ‘Suraksha – Bengaluru City Police’ is easy to use and can be downloaded free of cost on Android and iOS phones.
It is introduced by the city police to reach quickly to the women in unsafe situations.
When a user presses the red button on the app, an emergency alert alongwith location details will be sent to the police control room.
The women safety team at the nearest location will be informed which will take immediate action.
The case will be then handed over to the police authorities.
