In co-operation with the then Ministry of Children and Family Affairs and the then Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and the Police has developed an alarm system for women who are threatened with violence. The alarm is offered to women who have been seriously threatened or have proved to be in a vulnerable position. The initiative for this project was taken by the then Gender Equality Council.
