Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

PE­SHAWAR—The IGP Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa Nasir Khan Dur­rani here Fri­day stressed on po­lice of­fi­cers to im­prove their over­all be­hav­ior and pub­lic deal­ing for bet­ter ser­vice de­liv­ery. He ex­pressed these views while ad­dress­ing a meet­ing of Sub-divi­sional Po­lice Of­fi­cers of Pe­shawar and Mar­dan Re­gion held un­der his chair­man­ship at Cen­tral Po­lice Of­fice.

CCPO Pe­shawar, RPO Mar­dan, SSP Op­er­a­tions Pe­shawar, DPOs of Mar­dan, Now­shera, Charsadda and Swabi and Divi­sional SPs of City, Cantt and Ru­ral also at­tended the meet­ing. In the meet­ing, the AIG Es­tab­lish­ment Na­jeeb ur Rehman and Di­rec­tor IT Naveed Gul gave a pre­sen­ta­tion to the par­tic­i­pants on the re­form ini­tia­tives of the KP Po­lice, their re­la­tions with chang­ing the thana cul­ture and their im­pact on im­prov­ing pub­lic ser­vice de­liv­ery.

While ad­dress­ing the po­lice of­fi­cers, the IGP stressed to im­prove their over­all be­hav­ior and pub­lic deal­ing. He di­rected them to em­u­late the meth­ods, man­ners and eti­quettes of po­lice of­fi­cers of the civ­i­lized na­tions. He re­it­er­ated that the de­meanor of a po­lice of­fi­cer must be im­pec­ca­ble and friendly to­wards the gen­eral masses.

The chair said that we are the ser­vants of the peo­ple and not their mas­ters. The pub­lic per­cep­tion and pub­lic sat­is­fac­tion of the po­lice is the only gen­uine yard­stick and ob­jec­tive mea­sure of its per­for­mance.

The chair said that we must en­deavor to pro­tect and main­tain the im­age of the Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa Po­lice and it can only be achieved by win­ning the hearts and minds of the pub­lic.

He said that DRCs have been es­tab­lished on the prin­ci­ple of restora­tive jus­tice which is play­ing a key role in not only ad­dress­ing the petty is­sues and root causes of the crime but is also en­gen­der­ing ad­vo­cates of po­lice.

Later on, the IGP high­lighted the ef­forts of KP po­lice for im­prov­ing the per­for­mance of Po­lice Sta­tions. He said that there are two as­pects of Po­lice Sta­tion which are es­sen­tial to im­prov­ing Po­lice (thana) Cul­ture one is the phys­i­cal re­sources and the other is the hu­man re­source. Se­condly, the KP po­lice has taken a num­ber of ini­tia­tives to im­prove the ca­pac­ity and pro­fi­ciency of the hu­man re­source of the po­lice sta­tions.
