Alfa Laval offered to take up the upgrade of two rooms and provide the necessary facilities at the police station to make it women-friendly. We partnered with an NGO to implement the project.
The initial idea for the project was sown when the officials of the local Bhosari Police Station approached the nearby companies to help in providing support to make the police station women-friendly.
This project was undertaken in the CSR focus area of Women Empowerment. It will not only benefit the women police officials but also the women from the community near our operations.
On 5th May 2022, the project was formally handed over to the Police Station and five of our employees were present at the event. Santati Patil said, “We all were incredibly happy to be part of this noble cause. The event was very well organized, and Alfa Laval’s efforts were well appreciated".
The police station has more than 25 women police officers and they did not have proper facilities to perform their daily tasks. Also, the women victims who come to the police station did not have privacy or a place to rest before. This effort helped them overcome their challenges.
Women police officers face a lot of mental traumas while handling cases. Two awareness sessions were carried out by the NGO on mental health and stress relief. The participants thanked Alfa Laval for arranging the awareness sessions.
