Ranchi (By our correspondent): Jharkhand Governor Draupadi Murmu stressed on the need for creating a favourable environment for
the women personnel in the police department and said that when the women police personnel are safe than only they would be able to protect others.
Addressing the second day of the 8th nation women police meet here she said that when the policewoman would be living in an environment of fear that they would be not feeling comfortable in providing security to others. She said that women in the
police have made a special identity for themselves on the basis of their talent and capabilities and in the days to come to their numbers would increase in the police and most probably their participation would be at least 50 percent. She said that it is the purpose
of the workshop also to deliberate that on one hand the women police are able to fulfil their duties but are they able to fulfil their family
responsibilities and playing the roles of the mother-daughter etc. She hoped that the forum will also discuss these problems and come out with solutions so that they too can dispense their responsibilities with dedication.
The governor used the occasion to appeal to the women police personnel to feel comfortable in the state and there should be no fear among them. She also said that no differentiation should be made between men and women at the workplace as women are performing better in all the walks of life for which they needed to be encouraged further.
