Social Security Audit /Women Security Guards in Housing Societies

This petition had 152 supporters

Since Social Security Audit has been conducted I would like Women Security Guards to be appointed in Housing Societies enabling women and children to approach the Security Guards without fear.

There is overwhelming increase of male Security Guards in Housing Societies committing heinous crimes such as rapes, molestation, eve-teasing,  sexual harassment, thefts, murders,crimes under POCSO , crimes against senior citizens , etc. 

Having female Security Guards will act as a deterrent to male-dominated public spaces in Housing Societies where as predators they indulge in targeting what is perceived as vulnerable targets such as women and girls, senior citizens and others for heinous  crimes as mentioned above. Female Security Guards will not indulge in such anti-social behaviour & also be witness to crimes and act as a balancing factor. A female guard can also frisk another female in case of theft etc.  If commercial establishments such as Malls, Shopping complexes, Banks etc. can hire Female Security Guards why not housing Societies too ? We have lady police now as well as lady auto-rickshaw drivers supported by the Government. So why not lady Security Guards in Housing complexes ?

I am facing Expulsion from the Managing Committee of my Housing Society for complaining about the sexual harassment indulged in by the Security Guards against whom FIR has been filed & they have been arrested.

It needs to be made compulsory for all Housing Societies in the country to hire female guards in proportion to males.  I suggest the ratio of 1 : 2
