    Sir,

    SECURITY... we hear that word a lot, don't we... Break it down:

    SEC

    U
    R
    IT


    Y

    Point being, security begins with the citizens and is a bottom up cascading responsibility.

    Vigilance of the public does indeed go a long way in preventing the terrorist's nefarious designs, but a solidly effective police force is still a necessity to maintain proper security.

    Community Policing is called Community Policing for a reason, unless you educate and empower the public you wish to protect you will be plucking at straws all year long my friend.

    Pakistan needs to work more and more on Police as well.

    Like for Sindh Police,

    There should be 500,000 young men that should be recruited in with F.Sc and then they should be given 4 years training with BS education beside it. Also the Police of Pakistan as well as Sindh should be given equipment made by POF like small, medium and heavy arms along with Helmets and Bullet Proof Jackets. Vehicles should not be Suzuki Mehran and Ravi/Pick up, rather it should be Toyota Hilux about 5000+ of them along with 500 APC from HIT and 11000 bikes for patrolling like Yamaha Junoon class ones.

    TI-Pakistan takes case of buying armoured vehicles to NAB
    June 30, 2014 IQBAL MIRZA

    [​IMG] Despite repeated reminders, Transparency International Pakistan's complaint against Inspector General of Police Sindh, on the allegation of procurement of 20 armored vehicles at the cost of Rs1.24 billion, from Serbia without inviting tenders, continues to lie in cold storage. This issue was taken up by TI-Pakistan with IG Police Sindh, and also reported consistently to the Chief Minister, Sindh, Chief Secretary, government of Sindh, Karachi, NAB, FIA, Sindh High Court, and Sindh Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (SPPRA).

    Having failed to get any response, Chairman, TI-Pakistan, Sohail Muzaffar has now reported this mega scam, which involves purchase of 20 armored vehicles, at very high cost of Rs 1.24 billion, from M/s Yugoimport , Serbia without inviting tenders to the Chairman, National Accountability Bureau, Islamabad, Qamar Zaman Chaudhry.

    In a letter sent to him on June 28, he has summarized the entire issue as under:

    1. On August 29, TI-Pakistan sent a letter to the Inspector General Police Sindh, informing him that he had sent a team to Serbia to visit M/s Yugoimport, for inspection of armored vehicles, and that Sindh Public Procurement Regularity Authority was requested to give approval, to make this procurement, as per Rule 16 (b) under emergency, which was not approved by the Chief Minister. Transparency International Pakistan had requested the Inspector General Police, to examine the violations quoted, and in case the Sindh Police is procuring the vehicles from Serbia, without inviting tenders, then the procurement would be deemed and declared as Mis-procurement under Rule 56 of Sindh Public Procurement Rules 2010 and such act is defined as Corruption and Corrupt Practices, under National Accountability Ordinance, 1999, Section 9.

    2. On no response, a reminder was also sent to the IG Police on September 14, 2013.

    3. On October 25, 2013 SPPRA informed TIP that IG Police Sindh has sought exemption for this procurement from SPPRA and that chief minister has accorded the exemption for Rule 16 (b)(ii)(vii) , and that NAB Sindh has also reviewed the case on April 26, 2013.

    4. On September 27, 2013 TIP replied to SPPRA in which it challenged the exemption granted by CM on the grounds that this exemption is only allowed if these armored vehicles are not manufactured by any other company in world, and this was not the case.

    5. On October 3, 2013 SPPRA agreeing with TI-Pakistan, informed IG Police that these armoured vehicles can not be procured under direct contracting, and that they shall ensure that bid process shall be competitive.

    6. On February 20, 2014, Sindh Emergency Procurement Act 2014 was passed by Sindh Assembly, through which armored vehicles, bullet proof jackets, bullet proof helmets and bullet proof vehicles, arms and ammunition and other have been exempted from SPPRA for one year.

    The documents available with TI-Pakistan, also reveals that the costs of the APC's are very high, 4 times than USA made. Only in one item, transportation for each APC ( size 18.5 feet X 8 feet X 8 feet, which is one 20 feet container) from Serbia to Karachi, the costs agreed by Sindh Police, and FBR Islamabad , is US $50,000, ( Rs 4,900,000). The current rates of transport of one 20 feet container from any port in Europe to Karachi are not more than US $2,000. Only in transportation loss to exchequer is Rs 100 million.

    The seller is thus charging 25 times more than the market rates in transportation only. This overpricing confirms that the costs of APC's are also exorbitantly high, TI-Pakistan said.

    Another question is as to why the contract was executed against SPPRA in March 2013 for only 16 APC whereas the CM had directed to purchase 20 APCs?

    Chairman NAB has been requested to take up this matter with Sindh government, as it is a matter of exchequer's money and safety of policemen, and the funds are to be spent on competitive basis.

    Copies of the letter have been forwarded for information with the request to take action under their mandate to: Secretary to Prime Minister, Islamabad, Chief Secretary, Government of Sindh, Karachi, IG Police Sindh, Karachi , Sindh, with information that Emergency Procurement Act 2014 does not permit, IG Police Sindh to purchase without open tendering, Registrar, Sindh High Court, Karachi, and Managing Director, SPPRA, Karachi.

    Definitely a hero...Punjabi sher resilence!
    I commend his efforts.

    Before you decide to call him things and humiliate this Police Officer- compare him with yourself. What happened this man was undignified.

    The young police officer’s resume reads more like that of an academic than a typical cop. After completing his LLB, he earned his master’s degrees in civil engineering, sociology and human resources management, and later, a master’s in public administration from the University of Hawaii on a scholarship. While in the US, he also snapped up three diplomas – in peace and conflict resolution, leadership, and disaster management and human assistance.

    Back in the ring: I am not trained to leave the battlefield, SSP Asmatuallah Junejo

    ISLAMABAD:
    He got knocked down, but as promised, he got back up and says nothing can keep him down now. “I am not trained to leave the battlefield,” said newly-appointed Senior Superintendent of Islamabad Police Operations Asmatullah Junejo, as he prepared to return to the job three weeks after a brutal beating at the hands of protesters on Constitution Avenue. The incident took place on September 1, less than 24 hours after his first day on the job.


    In an exclusive interview with The Express Tribune, Junejo spoke of his determination to return to work. “People told me not to jump into the inferno again, but I’ve taken this as a challenge,” he said. Incidents such as the beating are ‘part and parcel of the job’, he said.

    The SSP said he was attacked from behind as he was negotiating with the protesters. “Those who attacked law enforcement officials were not unarmed protesters,” he said. An FIR was registered earlier this week against at least 60 Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek workers who reportedly attacked the SSP when he tried to stop them from entering PM House and snatched his wristwatch and official weapon. But Junejo says collective punishment is “not my cup of tea”.

    The young police officer’s resume reads more like that of an academic than a typical cop. After completing his LLB, he earned his master’s degrees in civil engineering, sociology and human resources management, and later, a master’s in public administration from the University of Hawaii on a scholarship. While in the US, he also snapped up three diplomas – in peace and conflict resolution, leadership, and disaster management and human assistance.

    Junejo started his service career as an inspector in the Excise Department’s Anti-Narcotics Cell in Karachi in 2001. In 2005, he passed the CSS exams and joined the Punjab Police.

    The ongoing sit-ins

    Junejo says there is no pressure on police to make “pointless arrests” or crack down on anti-government protesters in the capital. “That will just add fuel to the fire,” he said. The arrests of DJ Butt and other party workers earlier this month were needless “cosmetic measures”, he added.

    However, he said, police are ready to ensure that red lines are not crossed at any cost. “Minus live bullets, we have been given complete authority to take all measures to protect state institutions,” he said.

    At the same time, he admitted that the absence of deadly weapons may hinder law enforcers. The SSP revealed that 10 men claiming to be officials of a private security company were arrested from the sit-in site and unlicensed weapons seized from their possession. The men were given time to produce licenses, he said, but failed to do so.

    He said they were being interrogated to determine who they are and what were they doing with such weapons at the sit-in site. He revealed that around 21,000 law enforcers were deployed at the sit-ins and the government intends to keep these officers at the venue until December if needed.

    Junejo lamented that there is no respect for difference of opinion at the protest camps. “At the moment, they are acting like prosecutors and judges.” Despite the difference of opinion, however, the government is determined to provide maximum security to the protesters, he said. Imran Khan’s container, for instance, was made bullet-proof by law enforcement officials, he said.

    Attack on PTV HQ

    Commenting on the attack on PTV headquarters on September 1, Junejo noted that the army had not been instructed to protect the building. Soldiers promptly came to evacuate the building once they had received verbal orders to do so, he said. “Nonetheless, it was a big security lapse,” he admitted. Junejo said that under Article 245, the police’s responsibility was to assist the armed forces.

    Containers

    Junejo revealed that around 350 containers were placed in and around the capital and the government was paying Rs5,000 per container per day. “The first thing I will do after rejoining office is to remove all the containers in accordance with court orders,” he said. “The general public is suffering because of the containers and those who want to reach the sit-ins are able to do so despite the containers,” he added.

    High on crime and low on cops

    The worrying crime rate in the capital has left Junejo eager to resume work. He revealed that a 126 per cent increase was seen in vehicle thefts and a staggering 450 per cent rise in burglaries in August 2014 as compared with the same period last year. Street crimes have also increased and soft drugs are easily available in and around the sit-in sites, he said.

    Junejo added that most crimes are taking place in the limits of Tarnol, Kohsar and Margalla police stations. “Traffic rules are also being violated in the name of inqilab and azadi,” he added.

    Of the 8,000 policemen in the capital’s force, 5,000 are deployed at the sit-ins, Junejo said. The department has demanded 5,000 more policemen but only 600 were inducted. Meanwhile, 1,500 personnel are on VIP security duty, he said. “We only have 3,000 people left to guard the city,” he said. “That’s peanuts.”

    That is very interesting and encouraging to see. Any idea if previous batches from this new unit are already deployed? Were they involved in the post-Peshawar APS attack searches conducted in and around the city?
