Director General of Police (DGP), Haryana P.K. Agrawal flagged off the ‘Jagriti Yatra’, a month-long cycle rally launched by Haryana Police to raise social awareness regarding Women Safety and empowerment across the state at Police Headquarters, today.

Agrawal said that providing security to the women, children, and elderly people is one of the top priorities of Haryana Police. Women Police stations were established in the state of Haryana to strengthen the capacity of Haryana Police towards this aim. But still, in some areas of Haryana, women hesitate to report the crime. 

“This initiative aims to promote Women Safety by making the people, especially women & girls aware about their rights, and educated about the role of various agencies, including Police in the protection of women,” the DGP added.

The ‘Jagriti Yatra’ will cover all the districts in Haryana where social awareness events are to be organised by the district’s Police teams for maximising the intiative’s outreach. The team of Police Women cyclists participating in the rally will spread awareness amongst women and college/school girls about various crimes, crime prevention tips, and roles of various agencies.
