Amritsar Police has set up Women and Child Helpline in its efforts to streamline Community Oriented Policing. This was inaugurated on February 01, 2009. The helpline is committed to provide round the clock assistance to the women who are victims of marital cruelty, excesses, torture, eve-teasing, ragging and other crimes against women. It also provides help to the children in distress.

A dedicated toll free number 1091 has been started for the purpose. Any body can get help after dialing this number. Another phone number 9781101091 has also been earmarked for this purpose. A team of Women officers and counselors are available round the clock for this purpose. One gypsy including all accessories has been provided to this staff. It functions from the newly constructed building of Police Post Circuit House.

This Helpline was inaugurated by Prof. Laxmi Kanta Chawla, Hon’ble Health Minister Punjab on 01.02.2009. She insisted upon providing women and children extra care to wipe out discrimination and exploitation of women in our male dominated society.

We get full cooperation from Nari Niketan and Pingalwara Charitable Trust for rehabilitation of women and children in need.
