He also shared with the audience his plan to introduce departmental tests.
“Departmental tests would be conducted next month from Constable to Inspector level and those getting good marks would be given responsibilities as Station House Officers, Moharrars and others,” said the new police boss of Islamabad.
DIG Security Waqar Ahmed Chohan, DIG (Headquarters) Nasir Mehmud Satti, DIG (Operations) Faisal Ali Raja and other senior police officials were also present on the occasion.
The IGP made it clear that he would not tolerate corruption and bribe element in the force and those involved in such practices would be shown door.
He directed all police officials to ensure effective measures to ensure protection to the lives and property of the citizens. He stressed to adopt courteous attitude with citizens and perform duties in a professional manner.
He said that welfare of policemen would be on his top priority and all of personnel would have to work as a team for winning laurels to the force.
Aamir Zulfiqar said that conciliatory committees would be constituted in Islamabad on the pattern of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and public complaints to be resolved on priority basis.
He said that new induction would be made in Islamabad police and promotions would be made against the vacant seats in next month. The IGP said that he would conduct a ‘special sitting’ in each month where officers and jawans can brief him about their problems.
All issues of policemen would be resolved on merit basis and there would be no need to approach anyone in this regard, he added. IGP later mixed with the policemen on the occasion, listened to their problems and issued directions to immediately resolve them.
