She was the first-ever AIG from Quetta and the first to ever make it to this rank from Pakistan. She was the first one to reach flag rank in the history of the Police service of Pakistan.
Another notable factor is that Helena came from a Christian background. Currently, Helena is the highest-ranking female officer of the Police Service of Pakistan.
