Punjab IGP orders RPOs to boost trust between people and police
Inspector General of Police Punjab Inam Ghani Saturday said in order to boost trust between the citizens and the police, police officers should make their access to the public easier through community policing and open-door policy.
Addressing the regional officers of the province including CCPO Lahore during the RPOs conference at Camp Office GOR-1, the Punjab IGP said under the Free Registration of Crime Policy, not only the registration of crime incidents should be ensured in all cases but also all the supervisory officers should pay special attention to the registered cases to take them to the logical conclusions.
He said Investigation Branch Punjab should be made more active to ensure timely completion of cases as per merit while close coordination with prosecution should be maintained at the time of completion of challan so that challan is completed and submitted on time and the accused could not avoid punishment.
He added that the investigating officers should pay special attention to the monitoring and follow-up of terrorism cases and any progress made in it so that the process of eliminating terrorist elements and their facilitators could be made faster.
He said the RPOs at the regional level would be further empowered so they should also ensure effective monitoring and follow-up of cases in the districts under their administration and bring them to completion as soon as possible and also bring all possible justice to the victims of sexual abuse of women and children on a priority basis.
During the conference, all the RPOs briefed IG Punjab about the overall law and order situation in their ranges and districts and various projects.
CCPO Lahore Mohammad Omar Sheikh, all RPOs of the province and DIG Operations Punjab Sohail Akhtar Sukhera and other officers were also present in the conference.
