LAHORE: A constable must adopt congenial demeanor with professionalism to improve the image of police and restore its dignity, said Punjab Inspector General Police (IGP) Shoaib Dastagir.
He stated this while addressing the media at Police Lines, Qila Gujjar Singh on Wednesday. He directed that while performing duty one should keep in mind that Punjab police sacrificed hundreds of lives, so one should refrain from any act which could bring a bad name to the department.
He added that he had served in the police force of the provincial capital at different ranks. “We can meet public expectations only by further improving public service delivery”. He further said effective implementation of the law was the primary responsibility of the police. “So while adopting an open-door policy, it must be ensured that anyone misbehaving with the public had no place in the police department.
