Inspector General of Police Punjab Inam Ghani has said that maintaining law and order in the province, ensuring prompt solution to the problems of citizens and ensuring uniform rule of law is his top priority. He said in order to meet the expectations, all the principal staff officers posted in the Central Police Office and the command officers posted in the regions and districts will have to play their effective role in the best possible way. He further said that the officers and personnel who would bring the oppressors to justice and support the oppressed would be the vanguard of his team. “I will make sure that transfer postings are based solely on performance and good reputation, so that all officers should make selfless service to citizens without any pressure and rooting out criminal elements their motto,” he added. He further said that the policy of zero tolerance on harassment and corruption would be strictly implemented and the Additional IG IAB would be fully independent to take suo moto action on corruption cases as well as complete the inquiry and punish those responsible. He further said that corruption, abuse of power and killing and torture in police custody at any level in administrative and professional matters would not be acceptable and action under zero tolerance should be ensured against the officers and personnel involved in such irregularities.He asserted that, restoring the writ of the state while ensuring uniform enforcement of the law is one of my top priorities and in this regard, adherence to merit, discipline and strict following on issued SOPs will be ensured in all case. He further said that besides speeding up the free registration of FIRs, special attention would be given to improve the quality of investigation so that the society could be made crime free by punishing the professional accused involved in serious crimes. By making an ethical change in the behaviour of the police force and transforming it into a public friendly force is an important part of my policy and in this regard, along with making the recruitment policy more effective, further upgrading the training system and transfer, posting and promotion merit observance will be ensured in all cases so that the Punjab Police as an institution is made stronger and stronger by changing the public perception.He expressed these views while talking to media after assuming charge of the designation of Inspector General of Police Punjab at the Central Police Office here on Wednesday and issuing instructions in the first formal meeting with the officers.
