Bedi, the I.G. Police said more policewomen, who were currently performing desk jobs, would be
diverted to the field. They were recruited for the field work. It is unfortunate that they
were deployed elsewhere, said Bedi. Housing being one of the main problems being faced by
policewomen, Bedi said the department would try and work out a solution. She said the department
would consider having separate seniority levels for the women police.
|| It was
an unusual scene at the traffic lines with other senior officials also present on the occasion.
Initially the women were hesitant to air their grievances, but soon they opened up, and also
listened with rapt attention to the IGP. The IGP appealed to them to serve with honesty.
Dishonesty is as yet not associated with women police with our country. Let it not
happen, said Bedi. The police personnel will also have their rest days every week or at
least once every ten days, said the IGP.
