LAHORE: In another pilot project initiated by the Lahore police, the Kahna and Defence-A police stations have been designated as ‘model’ police stations. The project would be replicated throughout Lahore in the future.
This was disclosed by Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Amin Wains during a high-level meeting held at his office to review the law and order situation on Friday.
The CCPO said he would personally take care of all issues related to registration of FIRs, arrest of suspects, investigation and prosecution at Defence-A and Kahna police stations.
“Old enmities will be settled through the panchayat system, as it leads to reduction in crime,” Amin said.
Lists of proclaimed offenders, hardcore criminals, organised crime ringleaders and land mafia have been prepared and distributed for devising a mechanism of investigations and patrolling according to them.
Key performance indicators (KPI) have been prepared to evaluate the performance of police officials and officers from the ranks of constables to superintendents while refresher courses at police station-level will also be initiated.
The CCPO directed all divisional SPs to coordinate with the lawmakers of their respective divisions to mark out a strategy for taking action against anti-social elements.
He added the installation of 10,000 CCTV cameras under the Safe Cities project would be completed within the next six months. “This will not only help in curbing crime but maintain the flow of traffic also,” he said. “We are utilising all available resources for protection of life and property of people.”
