Gurgaon needs more women cops
As per Gurgaon police data till March 2012, the Gurgaon district has 459 sanctioned posts, but only 374 are filled. According to 2011 figures Gurgaon had a population of 1,514,085 of which male and female were 817,274 and 696,811 respectively. So just 459 women cops per almost 7 lakh women is extremely low per person woman to women proportion. Gurgaon needs more women police personnel on the ground due to rising crime against women, and the fact that some women among the sanctioned force go on leave for child care, etc., which leads to a dip in the total women's workforce At least, the planned posts should be filled. Women should also be involved in desk jobs such as criminal profiling and case investigations.
