Punjab Police Inspector General (IG) Cap (R) Arif Nawaz, on Monday, claimed that the body had no other option but to improve their performance.
There was no room for laziness or negligence, he maintained.
“We have to improve the image of police in the public and for this purpose, Police would have to change their attitude with the public and take further strict steps to control crimes,” Cap Nawaz added.
To achieve this target, practical steps in place of mere rhetoric were said to be needed.
He expressed these views during his maiden address in the capacity of Punjab IG to the Police Darbar at Police Lines, Rawalpindi.
