Participants at a seminar on Thursday stressed the need for better coordination, sharing of best practices amongst all the rule of law departments to ensure they continue with their daily duties and provide critical services to the people.

UNOPS Pakistan organizes a day-long workshop to highlight the needs and issues of Rule of Law Ministries, Provincial Departments, and Law Enforcing Agencies (LEAs) working in the country.

Speaking on the occasion, the chief guest, Inspector General (IG) of National Highways and Motorway Police (NHMP) Khalid Mahmood said that steel strong departments along with positive behaviour could bring revolution in the society.

He said that reforms and implementation of policies were difficult in Pakistan due to resistant behaviours. He said implementation of policy in other countries took no time and it was difficult to execute the plans due to cultural attitude issues in Pakistan.

The IG said a majority of the Pakistani population was comprised of youth and it was vital to train the youngsters for yielding a prosperous future for the country.

Speaking on the occasion, a Resource Person and former Inspector General of Police Sajjad Afzal Afridi explained to the participants regarding the mechanism of coordination, working of donor agencies, proposal submission and welfare work of UNOPS.

Explaining the projects in the pipeline, Sajjad Afzal Afridi said that the up-gradation of two training facilities and refurbishment of building infrastructure to improve safety and security at outposts was in the draft projects for Frontier Constabulary. He said the draft project for the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police included the up-gradation of the police training school to college level while Motorway Police’s draft projects included the establishment of a female-officers inclusive driving training school for NHMP employees.
