Ensure women’s safety in our homes, offices first — Nagaland DGP
Dimapur, Feb. 11 (EMN): Director General of Police (DGP), Nagaland, T John Longkumer on Friday told the police personnel that they should be aware of the physical and mental issues of victims of abuse besides the legal process of investigation on women’s safety.
He was speaking at the valedictory programme of 5-day course for investigators on women’s safety (2nd batch) at Police Training School in Chumoukedima, according to an update received here on Friday.
‘We need to emphasise and take that extra step to make them (women) feel safe and secure under our wings. We must practice what we preach, so we must begin within the Police department itself. Ensure women’s safety in our own homes and offices first,’ the police officer was quoted as saying.
‘A true Naga warrior will defend and ensure the safety of the women he holds dear, mother, sisters and daughters. Apply this principle to all women who cries out for our help and I assure you Naga women will have no fear anymore,’ he added.
The DGP also handed out the ‘passing out certificates’ to the participants of the course at the event. He added that “this category (women’s safety) will be kept in mind for the award of DGP Commendation Disc in the future”.
