Special 1,000-strong night police force deployment in Gurugram


Gurugram is set to get a 1,000-strong night constabulary dedicated to patrolling the streets in order to shore up law-and-order in the city and particularly to make women feel safer, according to top government officials and police officers. They will be called Special Police Officers (SPOs) and will not work on a shift system, like the normal constabulary, but will be deployed only at nights in a city where a number of offices are open late because of a thriving BPO industry and MNCs who follow American and European time zones.

Night deployment will be more in the eastern side of the Gurugram — particularly Golf Course Road, Sector 29, MG Road, Sohna Road and Cyber City – which sees the maximum vehicular movement, the police commissioner said.
