New Delhi: In a bid to beef up security for women in the capital, Delhi Police is all geared up to launch a facility named “track me” in its existing SOS application HIMMAT.

Especially catered for women who have to travel a lot and at odd hours, the “track me” facility will provide the commuters three time slots to select from and and the GPS tracking shall continue for the selected period. The facility also has the provision to change the time slot if the commuter does not reach her destination within the chosen time frame.

The “track me” facility enables the police control room to conveniently locate the person in distress even if her position keeps continuously changing.

The facility which has already been developed and is currently under trial mode has three time slots, “10 minutes”, “15 minutes” and “30 minutes”.

Changes in the facility will be incorporated based on the shortfalls experienced during this phase, which shall continue for at least a month before “track me” is launched, said .

Special Commissioner of Police (Operations) Sundari Nanda said, “the facility aims at ensuring security for women who work in odd shifts and have to commute at odd hours.”

She further said, the registration process for the HIMMAT has been made easier and is available on all mobile OS platforms.
