LAHORE  - Provincial Law Minister Rana Sanaullah yesterday said that funds would be allocated in next fiscal year for establishing front-desks at police stations across Punjab.

The minister said that the chief minister had approved the project to establish complaint handling centers in police stations all over the province.

He said that following the successful launching of the computerised complaint handling centers in 10 police stations of Lahore, the project would be extended to the entire province in different phases.

The minister stated this after inaugurating the complaint handling center at the central police office yesterday. Punjab Inspector General of Police Mushtaq Ahmad Sukhera, Home Secretary Azam Suleman, MPA Jehangir Shuja Khanzada, and several police officers were also present on this occasion.

Rana Sanaullah said the system-generated centers would be monitored closely and this project would prove as tip of the iceberg in revamping the policing.

IGP Mushtaq Ahmad Sukhera said the police helpline (8787), activated in the complaint center at the CPO, would help monitor public complaints. The police chief said the department would ensure quick action and response on the public complaints.
