Regional Police Officer Dera circle Muhammad Salim Marwat urged policemen to deal with people in a polite manner to improve the force’s image which stemmed from the so-called ‘Thana Culture.’ Addressing a police Darbar at DPO Office Tank, the RPO said that the main responsibility of the police force was to protect the life, property, and honor of citizens and this obligation could be fulfilled in a true spirit when there was an atmosphere of trust between the police and people.

He said that the stigma of Thana culture which was deeply rooted within the policing system could be washed or reformed by adopting a positive attitude towards people. “ Bring positive change in attitudes and keep doors open for the oppressed people. If any victim comes to the police station for relief, you should help him write an application and immediately register the case”, the RPO observed.

He also appreciated the services of Ghazi jawans and martyrs of police and security forces who laid down their lives to protect the motherland. that I pay tribute “ I salute to the Tank police who are performing their duties by fighting on the front line against anti-social elements within limited resources,” Muhammad Saleem Marwat said.
