As a concerned citizen, I would like to draw attention towards the absence of any proper welfare projects for police throughout Pakistan. Police staff and their families should be provided with the proper facilities of health, education and residential colonies by the department. The department should initiate such projects in order to facilitate their staff, on the pattern of the initiatives taken by the armed forces. Presently the police is being given minimum salaries as compared to other leading government departments and their families also face problems regarding education of children and lack of health benefits.
