A seminar on 'stress management' was organised for Punjab Highway Patrol (PHP) personnel at Makoana Patrolling Post on Saturday. DSP Patrolling Faisalabad Malik Muhammad Amin, while addressing the seminar, said that the PHP had a sacred cause to serve humanity and prevent highway robbery and fatal accidents.

"In view of their hectic duty, stress is natural, but professionalism and commitment to duty rejuvenate the spirit during physical and mental stress," he stated. The DSP said that the PHP officers should possess a courteous attitude during duty. This behavior would help them overcome stress among colleagues in the Police Department as well, he added.

The DSP said that the PHP had gained much importance as a first responder during emergencies and calls on the 15 helpline were passed onto patrolling police for immediate response. "In case of emergencies, accidents, harassment or any unlawful activity on road, commuters can call PHP on its helpline 1124 and patrolling police will respond immediately.
