Police officers should put the skills of their subordinates to best use for redressal of public issues: IG Punjab

Inspector General of Police Punjab Shoaib Dastagir said that it is my mission to establish Punjab police professionally strong and helpful for public and in this regard police officers should perform their duties with honesty, dutifulness and hard work to win the hearts of public by improved service delivery and good demeanour so that trust between public and police can be further strengthened. He further directed to ensure effective monitoring of the modern policing initiatives including Khidmat Markaz and to further improve the service delivery in the light of the feedback from citizens because without promoting the sense of security among citizens their trust can’t be won.
