IGP urges SIs to use God-gifted authority for public service, safety

LAHORE: Punjab Inspector General of Police Dr Usman Anwar has termed that Sub-Inspectors are lynchpin in the Police Force, who are not only the backbone of police stations and field duty, but in future, the same officers will perform duties on supervisory seats.

Punjab IG Police Dr Usman Anwar expressed the views in a meeting with Sub-Inspectors under “Meet the Force” project at Central Police Office here on Saturday. The IGP met 84 sub-inspectors who were directly recruited and 84 ranker sub-inspectors who were promoted. He gave them guidelines on duty sensitivity and responsible discharge of professional duty.

While addressing Sub Inspectors, the IG Police said that they should pledge to fight against crime and criminals to ensure public safety and service in every possible way. Dr Usman Anwar said that police service was a unique duty in which can beautify one’s this world but also life after here by performing this duty with due diligence and sincerity. “We use the powers given to us by Allah Almighty to serve and protect the public”, he asserted and added the salary of the entire force, including his, comes from the taxes paid by the people, so no effort should be spared in the selfless service and protection of the people.

The IGP said that all the Sub-Inspectors should be a leaden wall in maintaining law and order and preventing crime and should stop the hands and eyes raised towards the life and property and dignity of the people. He said that taking best performance from constables was the responsibility of Sub Inspectors. He directed sub-inspectors to get better performance from the force with their field experience and leadership skills. Dr Usman Anwar said that revolutionary measures were being taken for the welfare of the police force and within a month, thousands of employees have been given relief by deciding on record cases in categories including educational scholarship, departmental assistance, pension.

During the meeting, Additional IG Welfare Riaz Nazir Gara informed the IG Police about the programs started for the welfare of the force and said that as per directions of the IGP, special measures were being taken under the departmental promotions and comprehensive strategy for welfare of the force.

In the ceremony, DIG Establishment Dr. Inam Waheed, DIG IT Ahsan Younis and DIG Establishment II Azhar Akram and DIG Headquarters Humayun Bashir Tarar and AIG Discipline also addressed the sub-inspectors.
