The facility functions round-the-clock and the number can be dialled from all telecom networks and landline numbers without prefixing area STD code of 0124.
On receiving a call, the information would be passed on to a nearby PCR van and within 3-5 minutes, the police personnel along with a women officer will reach the spot.
The corporate hub, which has a large number of working women, is infamous for having many dark spots and isolated stretches due to poor lighting. Those working in BPOs feel unsafe travelling home during odd hours.
ACP (headquarters) Poonam Dalal said, "Women cops are working in three shifts and 12 officers are deployed for the services, three each on a shift. Earlier, the police control room number 100 received the call and handled the complaint but now we have a 24x7 dedicated number for women."
Each call is recorded and monitored by a senior police official on a daily basis.
