Inspector General Police Punjab Shoaib Dastagir said that to improve the Internal Accountability System of police is at the top of my priorities because officers and officials taking no interest in the redressal of public complaints and trespassing their powers will not remain part of my team so their timely accountability is crucial for the overall improvement in the performance of the force. He directed Addl IG IAB to issue warning letters to those DSPs who are not taking interest in redressal of the public complaints and if they do not improve their performance after warning letters they have no right to remain on the field postings. He further directed to make every possible effort for redressal of the complaints received at 8787 IGP complaint center dealing the complainants congenially, adopting a zero tolerance policy against the officers and officials found responsible for the delay in FIR registration. He also directed to ensure a follow up of the complaints received at 8787 through calls, SMSs, Emails and by Posts to resolve the citizen’s complaints at earliest. He further said that to resolve the public issues should be our first priority because only by best public service delivery trust between public and police can be strengthened.
