LAHORE: The Punjab police have decided to integrate family members of policemen with its Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS), said Inspector General Punjab Police Arif Nawaz on Saturday.
The physical health performa would include blood groups and health details like disease history. A psychological evaluation would be conducted through a peforma filled by every officer. These will be updated in the system and will be considered while making a decision for posting.
Earlier, talking about the recruitment policy a few days ago, he said that importance would be given to psychological tests and interviews in recruiting process. “Policing is a specialised job that is stressful and mentally, psychologically exhausting.”
IGP said that the decision to integrate family members of the cops with HRMIS was taken for their welfare. Whenever a family member of a police officer was supposed to get a scholarship or other monetary benefit on the basis of the employer, they had to pass through a certain process for ratification. If these trees were already integrated it would lead to a transformed and reformed welfare delivery process.
