Staff Reporter

Islamabad police has appointed policemen at all police stations to guide the visitors for early redressal of their complaints.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Islamabad Qazi Jamil-ur- Rehman announced the deployment of personnel in a ceremony at Secretariat Police Station.

The event was attended by DIG (Operations) Afzaal Ahmed Kausar, SSP (Operations) Dr. Syed Mustafa Tanveer, Zonal SPs, SDPOs, traders community and journalists.

The IGP termed the move a positive step towards changing typical ‘thana culture’ besides improving police image among the masses.

The decent attitude with complainants would be helpful in inculcating friendly police ecology, the IGP said and urged the personnel to make best possible efforts to resolve the problems of citizens with honesty and efficiency.

He said that complainants should feel secure themselves during visit of police stations rather than getting frightened.

Rehman said 65 percent people visit police stations to get resolved their issues of minor nature.

DIG (Operations) Afzaal Ahmed Kausar thanked IGP Islamabad for his support and coordination in implementation of this idea.

He said that feedback from Islamabad police chief would help a lot to provide relief to the citizens under this new initiative.
