Press the Panic Button

Ladies, there’s a sigh of relief for all of you, whenever you feel any harassment around you, just press the panic button and stay safe. This is not an illusion more because the very step has been taken to provide safety to women for reporting the harassment cases. An app is ready to install on your phone that is surely an ultimate solution to security concerns.

 Punjab Government has gone a step forward to make it real, the safety of women has been ensured by launching an application on android “Women Safety Smart Phone Application” to tackle women’s harassment or any kind of threat or abuse. LUMS IT department is the name behind such exceptional developing.

The specially designed app has been launched by the Chief Minister’s Special Monitoring unit in collaboration with the Punjab Safe Cities Authority and the Punjab commission on the Status of women. The safety app is available to download from Google Playstore, and developers are working to launch it on apple too.

That app has some unique features that incorporate a special button ‘panic button’ for women’s safety that provides immediate access to the PCSW helpline (1043) and SMU’s Women-on-Wheels campaign. It is capable of informing directly to Police Integrated Command, Control, and Communication (PPIC3) officials about any harassment accident by recording complaints.

In the case of filing a complaint, the law enforcement agencies will send off a squad of first responders to combat the incident on receiving warnings. And if you think you’re somewhere that is unsafe for you, you can also avail this feature to mark unsafe place (place audit), the software will share your exact geographic location to take rapid action. Strict action can be taken in case of exploiting the app and feature by anyone, warned authorities.

Along with these incredible features, the safety app contains awareness literature on women protection and rights. It explains the harassment nature and types and how to confront the issue in words.

This is by far the great step ever taken in terms of women protection. Passing the amendments and bills for women protection is required but these little handy facilities are the need of time. Kudos to Punjab government for introducing the app. A way to go!
