Nepal Police is working out a new initiative that aims to address women and child violence across the country.
“We have given priority to the safety of women and children in public vehicles. In this regard, we are in the process of launching a campaign on violence against women and children in public vehicles,” IGP Khanal said in a release.
Khanal was speaking at the inaugural function of the Civil Support Room at Metropolitan Police Range Office (MPRO), Teku.
Speaking at the event, Khanal further informed that the department is also partnering with various organizations working for the women and child welfare.
“We are holding talks with representatives of women organizations and networks working for the welfare of women in order to launch the program,” IGP added.
Speaking about the new construction, Khanal informed that the support room built in line with the Community-Police Partnership Campaign aims to offer effective police services to the public in a friendly environment.
Khanal was hopeful that the department would be more successful in curbing criminals and crimes of all level such as human trafficking, among others in the capital with the help of civil society and related stakeholders.
The support room was built with a NPR 1.95 million investment from the Nepal-Bangladesh Bank.
