Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Khan Baig has said that special training on modern lines and provision of latest weapon to the police force is the need of the hour in order to transform the Punjab police into a well-organized department. 

This initiative would not only help eradicate the negative culture in the policing but also improve the professional skills of the policemen positively.

The IGP stated this while addressing the passing-out ceremony of 654 probationer ASI’s at the Police College Sihala on Saturday.

 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.–Staff reporter
