Code Red is name given to anti eve teasing squad of Jabalpur Police . The basic aim of this team is to take effective steps to control menace of eve teasing , sexual harassment against girls women when they step out of their home . It is intended that feel of safety , security is instilled in the mind set of female folks of city and they roam around in city in fearless way . In order to achieve this there are four teams covering area of 23 police stations . Each team is headed by an officer of rank of Sub inspector and 10 other members of which at least four are female constables .Each team is equipped with necessary arms and trained to deal with anti social elements . So far excellent response has been received from public since 2.01.2017 when this operation started .
In order to make this operation more effective it was felt that a medium is created so that girls can communicate their grievances to police in easy and hassle free manner . Complaint boxes were placed at various locations like schools , colleges etc . As an extension to the same this app is developed . In this app a provision has been made so that in case of any untoward incidence , emergency when girls need police intervention a SOS call/msg may be sent to police at just click of button . In SMS name , mobile no , blood group and location of needy are sent to police and pre registered relative/friends of needy . This helps in despatching nearest code red team for prompt relief .
Besides this if any victim intends to inform about any harassment faced by her than she can share pics , location detail etc using complain button . Using this button complaint can be sent with the help of questionnaire , text input , uploading image of hand written complaint , by way of verbally recording complaint etc .
Once complaint is submitted and uploaded same is registered in server and an officer is deputed through server software . At backend provision has been made to keep track of such complaints and their disposal . Appropriate MIS(Management Information System) is in place such that if complaints are not resoled or addressed in given time frame level of complaint is automatically escalated and higher authorities in hierarchy are informed and brought in loop . Besides this provision has been made educate females about self defence etc News and gallery options are to inform about day to day activities of code red team . After seeing real action on ground it is expected that girls women who are in distress may gather courage and develop confidence to approach police.
Various improvements are on cards to make this more useful and effective in coming days .
