Punjab Police established specialised investigation units at Police Stations

The Punjab Police has established special investigation units at all the police stations across the province in compliance with the directives of the Inspector General Police, Inam Ghani. Additionally, the City Police Officer (CPO) Rawalpindi, Ehsan Younas, has appointed investigation staff to all the police stations of Rawalpindi. ------------------------------

This development is aimed at improving the service delivery and investigation standards of the police force. Accordingly, 750 officers have been dispatched in different categories to the police stations to probe the 30,000 yearly crimes (of 2020) with approximately 50 cases per investigation officer in a year.

The CPO has designated 80 competent Investigation Officers (IOs) under the ages of 45 to deal with around 3,500 crimes against persons, 270 IOs to investigate 13000 crimes against properties, and 45 IOs to probe financial crimes in the province. ------------------------------

Under the orders of the IGP, 38 officers have been posted to the Homicide Unit and 50 officers are working in the Narcotics Unit. Additionally, 275 officers have been posted for general operation duty/Local & Special Laws to 30 police stations in Rawalpindi.

The initiative began on 1 February and will be carried out after three months in May.
