In order to transform Punjab police into a well-organised department, special training to police force is need of the hour: Inspector General Police Punjab

Lahore, July 06, 2013 (PPI-OT): In order to transform the Punjab police into a well-organized department, special training on modern lines and provision of latest weapon to the police force is the need of the hour. This initiative would not only help eradicate the negative culture in the policing but also improve the professional skills of the policemen positively.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Punjab, Khan Baig, expressed these views while addressing the passing-out ceremony of 654 probationer ASIs at the Police College Sihala today. Commandant Police College Sihala Khalid Mahmood and a number of senior police officers were also present on this occasion.

Khan Baig stressed upon the officers to ensure service-oriented policing. He also expressed satisfaction for including the subjects of security intelligence, crime control, and investigation in the training courses. He also said that the induction of legal experts, doctors and subject specialists among the visiting faculty of the Sihala Police College is a great step indeed as it would bring the training institute at par with the international training institutions.

The provincial police officer also said that the specialized training, apart from traditional education, would improve the professional ability of the policemen.

Khan Baig also stressed upon the officers to get prepared to confront the terrorists and anti-state elements. He also paid rich tributes to the martyred policemen who laid down their lives for the homeland besides setting an example of courage and bravery.

The Punjab IGP also directed the police officers/officials to ensure justice and peace in the society by utilizing all available resources and powers granted to them as per the law. He warned that extra-judicial steps would never be tolerated since they are considered as tyranny and aggression.

He also directed the policemen to behave politely with the public as this attitude would help maintain peace and harmony in the society. He further asked the officials to serve the people and the society with commitment and dedication since it is a great service of the humanity as well.

Meanwhile, the Punjab IGP also lauded the efforts of the Commandant Police College Sihala and his staff for imparting best training and education to the policemen and hoped that they would leave no stone unturned to improve the skills of the policemen.
