Police officers need to get training at all provincial training institutes: Baligh
ISLAMABAD—Minister of State for Interior and Narcotics Control Engr Muhammad Baligh Ur Rehman on Monday urged the provincial police training institutes to train officers from other provinces in their respective institutions. While attending the prize distribution ceremony of “Shooting Competition in the honor of police Shuhda” as a chief guest at Police College Sihala organized by National Bureau of Police (NAP), he said there should be some quota dedicated to different provinces for this purpose.
“Such training programs not only give a platform to share good practices among provinces but also create a unique bond of friendship and brotherhood among the jawaans”, he remarked.
The minister congratulated the Director General NPB Iqbal Mehmood for conducting such significant competition among the provinces. “As we know that a martyr is not dead, he is alive and his death is the life of the nation, so we should never forget our martyrs and should always honor them with great respect”, he added.
Baligh ur Rahman said, it is the first step of honoring police’s martyrs and there is still room for improvement.
He said such competitions are not only momentous to honor the police officers but are equally important to judge the skills of the currently serving police officers. The minister said the law and order situation is improving in the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.
“Monitoring of Madrassas, verification of SIMs, latest equipment for police officers, registration of the criminals in jails, transferring hard criminal to special jails and training of the officers by the best international trainers are just the few examples of the government vision,” he said. He urged the police Jawaans to never lose hope and remain focused to counter terrorism and extremism in the country.
Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) police have won the trophy of best team in the shooting competition. The minister thanked the DG NPB and congratulated the officers who won prizes. At the end, the minister distributed the prizes among the winners.
