Tags are implemented to identify young children in case they wander away from the group. Female police officers in Pampa are attaching these tags to the hands of children near the guard station. As they ascend the mountain and reach Sannidhanam, children often become separated in the crowded rush for darshan. Those who witness their distress without intervening are moved by their cries. The plight of those who abandon their children is even more challenging.
The introduction of police tags serves as a remedy to this issue, functioning like a protective watch. The accompanying person’s name and phone number are documented and inscribed on the tag, which is then secured to the child’s hand. This system proves invaluable in locating children who may be left behind during the ascent and descent of the hill, particularly amidst the hustle and bustle at Sannidhanam for darshan. Individuals escorting children under the age of 10 are reminded to ensure that the child wears the tag for enhanced safety.
