ISLAMABAD: The fourth’ Retired Inspectors Generals of Police Conference ‘will be held in the last week of March, according to President of the Association of Former Inspectors General of Police (AFIGP) Iftikhar Rashid.

It was decided at a meeting that the theme of this conference will be future requirements of policing in Pakistan.

The primary purpose of this conference is to develop a strategy and mechanism to equip and enable the police to meet future challenges professionally. All arrangements were reviewed during this meeting and tasks were assigned to various unit officers.

Selected officers will be making brief presentations, followed by an open discussion, a press release said.

It may be pertinent to mention here that AFIGP chapters have also been set up in Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. The  Sindh chapter will also look after the affairs of Balochistan province.

The executive bodies of these chapters have been elected through a fair and impartial process under the supervision of the Chief Election Commissioner appointed in the inaugural session. It is hoped that these developments will not only promote police performance but also help the Government in devising ways and means to effectively combat the law and order situation. Based on the deliberations of the conference a self-contained report along with recommendations will be prepared and presented to all concerned.
