Mangaluru police allow pregnant, lactating women cops to work from home


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (DV)

Mangaluru, Apr 18: The Mangaluru City Police have given exemption to all pregnant policewomen in later stages of their pregnancy and lactating mothers from coming to the office or police station on basic health grounds due to a spike in the Covid-19 cases.

As many as 35 women staff who are pregnant or lactating have been permitted to work from the end of April 30. Thereafter, as per requirement of time and circumstances, decision will be taken on whether to extend the exemption.


Police commisioner N Shashi Kumar

Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said that pregnant policewomen in later stages of their pregnancy and lactating mothers have been asked to work from home. "Their presence in the headquarters (commissionerate limits) will be confirmed on daily basis. They are not supposed to leave the headquarters. In case of any emergency, they will be called back to work.

"It is upon request made by women officers and staff that we have given this relaxation," he added.

DCP (law and order) Hariramshankar told daijiworld that these policewomen will be given computer work and police IT-related works during work from home.

Usually, the police department provides six months of maternity leave.

    It is never a good idea to hire women for security jobs. It is a waste of taxpayers money. In the West when women are deployed to combat areas, the incidence of pregnancy rises. The women are not stupid. They can collect a salary and stay out of danger by getting pregnant. Feminists will denounce the one pointing to the truth as a sexist but truth should prevail.

    They must be given this concession for sure. On top of that giving computer to them is questionable. What work they can do sitting at home..????
