Punjab Inspector General of Police Inam Ghani directed all RPOs of the province to complete inspection of police stations in their respective districts within two months.
“In the light of reports of the inspection modern resources and facilities would be provided in police stations and construction and development works of police stations can be completed on priority basis.”
IG Police Inam Ghani issued the instructions to the officers while presiding over a video link session on upgrading of police stations and provision of modern facilities here from Central Police Office on Tuesday.
Inam Ghani said that the primary objective of police stations inspections should not be to punish but to improve public service delivery and regular inspections by officers would go a long way in changing police attitudes as well as improving the condition of police stations.
He further said that the image of the police in the public can be improved only by bringing politeness in attitude of police and better public service delivery.
Therefore, all supervisory officers should pay special attention to ensure that the staff deputed in the police stations adopt a sympathetic attitude during public dealings so that the problems of the victims and aggrieved persons can be solved on a priority basis.
He said that the police station is the main unit and axis of the police department and therefore in the new financial year to improve the delivery of public service by providing all possible means and facilities to the police stations is the top priority of the police department and all development funds in this regard will be spent exclusively on police station development and upgradation projects.
