It is still a miracle that the department of police is performing their duties, under the limited resources and dire working environment. With various quarters criticizing the police on their performance, it is about time that the criticism should become constructive and everyone should play their part in reforming the current police structure. Pakistan is fighting the war on terror and if this institution fails to function, then it could result in loss of innocent lives. It is imperative that proper resources are allocated to the police and the authority within the department is devolved to the lower levels, so it can perform its duties efficiently. YAHYA AHMAD, Islamabad, April 22.
