It is encouraging news that the Sindh Police will now be provided with health cover. The police personnel of the province will be able to avail the healthcare facilities, of major hospitals. The initiative is a welcome indication that the difficulties faced by the personnel of this department, are finally being seriously considered and also are being addressed. The police should be provided with the same facilities and incentives, as other leading public sector employees are awarded with. It is imperative that if this institution is to function at its full capacity, the grievances and problems of its human resource have to be addressed. Yahya Ahmad Islamabad
