Pune Times joins hands with police to drive for women’s safety
The Times of India’s city supplement in Pune, Pune Times has joined hands with Pune Police to support an initiative for women’s safety in the city. In this, the newspaper supplement has launched the campaign #MakeMyCitySafe as a big shout out to the youth of Pune to come together to make the city safer for everyone. The campaign has also been designed to promote the new City Safe app by Pune Police, through which the user can signal a SOS when in distress. The advantage of the app is that it doesn’t require an active internet connection.
With the initiative, Pune Times will reach out to the youth across the city, engaging in college debates, capturing video messages from public figures in the city, dignitaries and police authorities, which will be shared across social media platforms. Videos teaching self-defence to women will also be created in partnership with Pune Police to ensure that they are aware of the immediate steps to be taken to protect themselves.
