The IG Police pointed out that the “Rule of Law Reform” of the Justice System Support Program (JSSP) of the British High Commission is a useful program and the Punjab Police will extend all-out support for its success.
“The JSSP programme will help improve the Criminal Justice System and Investigation System, leading to speedy justice dispensation.”
The IGP said that Punjab Police is promoting use of modern technology for prevention of crime and execution of investigation process, adding that modern forensic science and geo-fencing have already been engaged in investigation of cases of serious crime.
