Inspector General of Police Punjab Rao Sardar Ali Khan has said that change in police station culture is only possible with quick redressal of issues of citizens and provision of best and easy service delivery to them.  Supervisory officers should pay surprise visits to police stations and offices, also hold open courts simultaneously.

He further said that sting operations in Lahore especially against beggars are commendable which should be continued in the same spirit across Punjab. Such sting operations against proclaimed offenders, fugitives, land grabbing mafia and anti-social elements should also be intensified so that the criminals could be taken behind the bars. He further said that the patrolling plan across the province should be updated on weekly basis to keep pace with the changing situation with effective monitoring while trackers in patrol vehicles should remain active in every situation.
