Safety Tips for Visitors

Delhi Police Department would like to make your visit to our exciting city as pleasant and safe as possible. You can help us further by following these simple tips while touring Delhi.

  • Carry your wallet in an inside jacket pocket or side trouser pocket, never in the rear pocket.

  • Carry credit cards and minimal cash in your pockets.

  • Leave valuables and important papers, such as jewelry and passports, secured in your hotel's safe deposit box. Never leave these items unattended in your room or carry large sums of cash on your person.

  • Be wary of unexpected persons coming to your hotel room. Never open the door to unsolicited room service or maintenance people. Contact the front desk if you have any doubts.

  • If you schedule a meeting with a potential client, research the company and the individual with whom you are meeting. Meet in a public place, such as a restaurant.

  • Make sure that luggage is only given to a member of the hotel's bell staff and a receipt is issued for stored luggage. Never leave luggage or other expensive items, unattended at airports or taxi stands.

  • Kindly contact on counter "May I help you" available in "Arrival Hall" at airport for help and guidance.

  • Prefer pre-paid Taxi Booth for hired transportation, since it is governed by DELHI TRAFFIC POLICE.  In this system you have to pay in advance for Taxi Fare which is already approved by Delhi Transport Authority, Govt. of India for each destination in Delhi.

  • Adequate number of police officers are deputed in proper uniform outside the Arrival Hall and parking area.  You can contact the nearest police officer to report about any undesirable elements and touts that you come across at the airport. Delhi Police keeps a check on these undesirable elements and touts at the airport. Active participation from the tourists in this drive is desired.

  • In addition to above, police officers in plain clothes are also deputed to keep watch on suspicious movements.  

  • Preplan your destination in Delhi regarding your stay and tourism in Delhi.  Never take advice of Taxi Drivers regarding your stay/tour in Delhi.  Please follow the information given by Police Officers at the "May I help you" counter, or any other Govt. recognised information Centres like Delhi Tourism, DTC, etc.

  • If you face any harassment or law and order problem in Delhi, you can dial 100 number from the nearest telephone for police assistance.
