    LAHORE: Provincial governments in Pakistan have been working actively toward making the delivery of justice efficient by digitizing systems. The provincial government of Punjab, in particular, will soon be releasing an emergency app for residents of district Lahore to make access to justice common.

    The app, called Rescue 15 Lahore, has been developed in collaboration with Punjab Information Technology Board.

    It is an important step in ensuring the thana culture and all negativity associated with it will slowly phase out from our society, DIG Operations Dr. Haider Ashraf said.

    Following is a brief overview of what the app.

    1. Interface

    The interface of Rescue 15 Lahore is simple and easy to use, with a uncluttered navigation menu. When a user launches the app, three options appear: contact Rescue 15, report a terrorist activity or lodge a complaint.

    2. Features

    Users must register themselves to access the app srvices by providing their CNIC number, phone number and location of the police station nearest to them. Users will then be asked to verify their account by dialing 15. Once the account is verified, the user can file a report by choosing report intensity through a drop down menu at the top of the screen.

    [​IMG]

    Users can submit a text report, a photo report (it allows attaching photos of the incident), check the status of the previous report or simply call Rescue 15 right from the application itself.

    [​IMG]

    In an emergency situation, press the big, red SOS button, which will send your location immediately to the police servers and a team will immediately be dispatched to the reported location.

    3. Malicious use of app

    In a statement released to a Pakistani news outlet, Ashraf warned against the misuse of the app for recreational purposes, saying that strict action will be taken against those who are found guilty of such activity or are involved in it in any way.

    The app is currently available on play store and you can download it from here. – SAMAA

    It includes revamping the urban policing by organizing the police command in urban districts into eight wings including administration, traffic, operations, law and order, investigations, security, community relations and communications and technology.

    The report suggest an efficient Alternate Dispute Resolution mechanism to reduce the burden on courts and the federal; law of Alternate Dispute Resolution Act, 2017 be extended to whole of the country or provinces should replicate it.

    The report recommends establishment of mediation centers, institutes of arbitrators and mediators in all provinces.

    The report recommends that the National Counter Terrorism Authority Act, 2014 be implemented in letter and spirit.

    Police Reforms Committee has also suggested legislative reforms and continuity of a uniform federal police law. The Committee recommended that important amendments be made in the police related laws like the Criminal Procedure Code and Qanoon-e-Shhadat Ordinance.

    The Committee also recommended that lawmaking be linked with budget making so that when laws are formed their implementation does not fall prey to paucity of resources.

    Addressing the launching ceremony, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said the report provides a roadmap to revamp the police department keeping in view the modern challenges.

    He expressed the hope that implementation of the report in letter and spirit will bring about a visible change in the functioning of the department.

    He said a strong police force is a pre requisite for providing a transparent and efficient justice system in any country.

    The Chief Justice said rule of law is imperative for peace and prosperity of the society. He stressed that police has an important role to play in maintaining law and order, and ensuring rule of law in the country. Therefore, it is important that the force must be made fully independent and strong.

    [​IMG]

    KARACHI: Sindh Police have allocated 'marriage grant' for the unmarried personnel in the force and also relaxed the conditions to avail the facility.

    The Welfare Board, headed by Sindh Police Chief Kaleem Imam, took several decisions in a meeting in view of giving relief to the policemen.

    According to AIG Welfare Dr Rizwan Ahmed Khan, out of 115, 000 policemen currently in the Sindh Police around 20,000 are single.

    The board approved the proposal of marriage grant of Rs 50,000 for serving officials (male/female) on their first marriage only.


    The board also waived off the condition of submission of Original Marriage Registration Certificate (Nikah-Nama) at the time of claiming of marriage grant. However, the applicant must submit original MRC along with copy duly attested by the concerned DDO within one month.

    To claim the grant, the official should provide his/her service details, NADRA's Family Registration Certificate (FRC) and wedding invitation card.

    [​IMG]

    The proposal regarding marriage grant for the two children of such deceased police personnel who die during service has also been approved by the board.

    Earlier, only the serving personnel were allowed to claim the grant of Rs 10,000 for the marriage of only one child.

    However, under the new policy the amount has been increased to Rs 50,000. Also the applicant can request for the grant of two children now.

    PM forms new body in third bid to reform Punjab police
    LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran Khan has constituted a high-powered committee to suggest reforms in the Punjab police on the pattern of those in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, giving a prime role to Interior Secretary retired Maj Azam Suleman and Principal Secretary to the PM Muhammad Azam Khan.

    The chief secretaries of Punjab and KP, Yousuf Naseem Khokhar and Naveed Kamran, have been appointed as members of the committee.

    Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Amjad Javed Saleemi and KP IGP Salahuddin Khan Mehsud will also be part of the committee, which was formed after the PM chaired a meeting in the wake of the Sahiwal incident on Thursday.

    The prime minister directed the committee to formulate recommendations taking into account the professional inabilities in the police that surfaced in the aftermath of the Sahiwal operation to avoid such incidents in the future, a senior official privy to the information told Dawn. He said all the above-mentioned officials were present in the meeting as well as Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.
    The premier directed the committee to furnish recommendations for capacity building of the police force -- particularly training, purging it of corruption, making it service-oriented and depoliticising it.

    This is the third time the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government (PTI) is attempting to reform the Punjab police since assuming power, the official said.

    However, he said that during the meeting the PM ignored IGP Durrani while discussing reforms, when he himself had been showering praises on Mr Durrani publically for bringing reforms in the KP police.

    Due to the IGP’s efforts, PM Khan had sought his services and constituted a high-powered ‘Commission on Police Reforms and Implementation’ in Punjab appointing Mr Durrani as its head on Sept 18, 2018. The commission was tasked with ridding the police of political interference/corrupt elements in all its ranks, granting it operational autonomy and empowering the head of the force in transfer/posting matters of senior officials.

    The official said that during Thursday’s meeting, Prime Minister Khan also directed Chief Minister Usman Buzdar to make necessary amendments to laws through the Punjab Assembly once the newly constituted committee formulates the draft proposals in this respect.

    The first effort of the PTI government to reform Punjab police suffered a major setback when Mr Durrani resigned as head of the commission on Oct 9, only 20 days after his appointment. The resignation had come hours after the Punjab government had transferred the then Punjab police chief Muhammad Tahir and replaced him with Amjad Javed Saleemi.

    The government had come under immense criticism, as there was a perception that the ruling elite in Punjab were behind the resignation. To avoid embarrassment, the government had formed another high-level committee, appointing the home secretary as its head. The Punjab IGP was made a member of the committee.

    This second committee also became controversial when senior policemen from Police Service of Pakistan criticised the Punjab administration for appointing a bureaucrat as head of a committee to reform the police. Resultantly, only two sessions of the committee were held and it was yet to furnish its recommendations.

    Rotation Policy 2019 finalised: Officers’ out-of-province service period to be extended to five years
    LAHORE: Introducing certain amendments to it at a couple of high-level meetings, the federal government has finally finalised new Rotation Policy 2019 for transfers and postings of the officers of all-Pakistan services — the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS) and the Police Service of Pakistan (PSP).

    It has dispatched the policy draft to the chief secretaries and provincial police officers of all the four provinces, besides those of Gilgit Baltistan before sending recommendations to the prime minister for final approval.

    “The Rotation Policy 2019 shall come into effect immediately and Rotation Policy, 2000 — and all-amendments made therein shall lapse on the date of notification of this policy”, reads the draft a copy which is available with Dawn.

    According to the draft Rotation Policy 2019, the first allocation of every PAS/PSP officer shall invariably be made outside the province of his/her domicile where he/she shall be required to serve until his promotion to BS-18 or for five years starting from the date he/she joins the provincial government/Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) as an assistant commissioner (AC) or assistant superintendent of police (ASP), provided that the ICT shall be considered part of Punjab, for the officers domiciled therein, for the purposes of first allocation under the policy.

    Earlier, the essential out-of-province (of domicile) service period for these officers was two and a half years.
    It says that no transfer of an officer, on any ground to any provincial government/ICT shall be allowed until his/her promotion or completion of five years of service, whichever is earlier.

    However, an officer may opt to complete five years in the province of first allocation, despite promotion to BS-18, for the purpose of eligibility for promotion to BS-19.

    The policy provisions regarding eligibility for promotion to BS-19 shall apply to the officers appearing in the CSS examination after the notification of the same.

    As per the policy draft, no PAS/PSP officer in BS-20 and below shall be allowed to serve in a provincial or federal government continuously for more than 10 years.

    “The officers who have served in any provincial government or the federal government for a continuous period of not less than ten (10) years shall be transferred to the federal government or other provinces, as the case may be, in public interest”, reads the draft.

    There placements shall be made on the principle of “Least Rotated, Transferred First”, to serve in the government with the highest shortage ratio.

    Once an officer has been thus compulsorily rotated, he/she shall not return to the government of his/ her previous ten-year posting, before completing two years at stations of his/ her posting situated outside of the geographical limits of government of his/ her 10-year posting. Provided that period spent on EOL/earned leave/study leave/OSD/training/deputation/foreign posting shall not be counted towards these two years.

    The officers who have served continuously for 10 years or more in the governments shall be relocated to other governments by 30th June, 2019.

    Service on a post of directing staff in National School of Public Policy (NSPP), Civil Service Academy (CSA) and National Police Academy (NPA) shall not be counted towards 10 years continuous service within geographical limits of a government, despite the training institution’s location within its geographical limits.

    Rationalisation of shortage ratios among governments

    Profiles of PAS/PSP officers shall be prepared on the basis of total period they have spent in a government. The existing principle of “Least Rotated, Transferred First” shall be the governing principle for placement of the PAS/PSP officers in various governments.

    The grade-wise lists of the least rotated officers shall be prepared by the Establishment Division twice a year in the months of January and July each year.

    The shortage in all governments viz-a-viz sanctioned posts in each grade shall also be prepared by the Establishment Division in January and July.

    The number of officers required in each government for equalising the shortage ratio in a grade shall also be worked out.

    The least rotated officers shall be transferred to the provinces with the highest shortages after taking their preferences.

    In case, sufficient number of officers are not available for rotation and posting in the ‘governments of higher shortage’ under the 10-year stipulation, the Establishment Division shall rotate PAS/PSP officers, who have had the highest lengths of stay within a government among their peers in the same grade, even if it is less than 10 years, calculated in the manner as described-above.

    Supportive provisions

    For the purpose of eligibility to promotion to BS-19, a service of at least five years out of the province of domicile shall be compulsory for every officer. This condition, however, shall be applicable to the batches which are inducted in PAS/PSP through CSS examination after notification of these policy provisions.

    An officer shall not be considered eligible for promotion to BS-21 by a Central Selection Board if he/she was serving in a government continuously for more than 10 years until he/she has been transferred out of that government and has served for at least one year in another government outside the geographical limits of the government of 10 or more years stay.This provision, however, shall become applicable after two years from the date of notification of this Rotation Policy.

    The officers serving in a government continuously for 10 years shall not be eligible for nomination to mandatory and foreign trainings, study leave, EOL, and long leave unless their continuous stay is broken in manner prescribed by these policy provisions.

    The wedlock policy shall not apply to PAS/PSP officers in relaxation of rotation policy: instead, spouses of these officers shall be posted closest to thir places of posting.

    In the cases where both the spouses are from PAS/PSP, the spouse from comparatively low shortage government shall be offered to be transferred to the other spouse’s government of posting.

    No exemption from this policy shall be given on the basis of gender to single or married female officers.

    As per the draft policy, the officers shall be allowed to retain at least one government accommodation anywhere in the country for settling their families. One-room family suite accommodation shall be made readily available to the officers transferred to other provinces/federal government.

    The postings/transfers of BS-21 officers shall be made by the Establishment Division after the prime minister’s approval as per the requests or requirements of federal and provincial governments, the draft reads.

    Punjab govt to address shortage of police force
    CM Buzdar directs inquiry into use of substandard material in public health schemes

    LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Tuesday assured that the Punjab government will address the shortage of law enforcement and rescue services in smaller districts of the province.

    While talking to the media at the Toba Tek Singh DC Office, CM Buzdar claimed record steps were taken within 72 hours of Sahiwal tragedy.

    “Punjab government has no role in calling the bereaved family to the Senate committee. The police will have to adopt a people-friendly attitude,” he added.

    To a question, he said that notice of corruption and other illegal activities has been taken and investigation of water supply scheme in TT Singh will be done through the Anti-Corruption Establishment.

    He said, “It is the first government which understands the problems of the people by going at the grassroots… A campaign has been started to visit every division and district for the sake of the people and government and the administration are gaining full understanding of the problems.”

    Earlier, the chief minister planted a sapling at the DC Office under tree plantation campaign and prayed for its success.

    He presided over a high-level meeting to review public welfare schemes and the situation of law and order in detail. He also issued necessary directions to the officials concerned.

    Addressing the meeting, the CM said that the PTI government has diverted the journey of development towards backward areas and added that public welfare schemes will be completed on a priority basis in TT Singh.

    “It is sanguine that every area has been benefiting from the journey of development while the past rulers kept the development process limited to specific cities due to their wrong policies. On the other side, PTI is following a policy of composite development,” he added.

    CM Budar said that the provision of the bus service to the girls’ school will be ensured and industrial zones will be established as well. Similarly, expansion of DHQ Hospital will also be considered.

    He issued directions to hold an inquiry regarding the use of substandard material in public health schemes and irregularities in the allotment of state lands in the past.

    “Corruption will not be tolerated and those who have looted the state resources will have to pay back every penny. I will personally monitor the public welfare schemes in TT Singh,” Buzdar added.

    He said that immediate steps will be taken for addressing the shortage of police force in the district.

    Buzdar said, “The Rescue 1122 service will be immediately started in Kamalia and Gojra. The start of peace caravan in TT Singh is a good step and this model will also be started in other districts. Similarly, scope of dolphin force will be extended to every district and every effort will be made to overcome the crime as well as protection of life and property of the people.”

    In a statement issued here they said huge difference had been observed in terms of salaries and other incentives between the tribal security officials and the KP police.
    In policing the salary of a Levies and Khasadar constable would be enhanced from Rs18,000 to Rs28,000.
    It is also expected that after approval of the police system in the tribal districts these areas would get status of hard area which would ultimately lead to increased incentives and perks of the security employees, the statement said.
    Likewise, the statement said the existing police Shuhada Package was far better than the Shuhada package of tribal security personnel. Under the package, the heirs of grade 1-16 officials of former tribal districts were being provided Rs3 million as compared to Rs10 million provided to the heirs of the same rank officials of the KP police.
    Similarly, the statement said that the heirs of grade 17 officials of tribal districts were being given Rs5 million as compared to Rs15 million paid to the heirs of the same rank officials of KP police. Moreover, the heirs of grade 18 and 19 officers of tribal districts are being given Rs9 million compared to Rs20 million in KP police.
    It said that besides this in China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) the quota of the newly-merged districts would be incorporated in the enlistment share of KP police force.

    Top cops flay inclusion of DMG officers in reforms body
    ISLAMABAD - Former and serving police officers have criticised government’s decision to make officers of District Management Group part of new police reforms committee in a move to restructure Punjab police in the wake of Sahiwal killings. Unrest prevails among officers of the Police Service of Pakistan (PAS) over the composition of police reforms committee for making officers of Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS), old DMG, part of the committee and they have termed it complete wastage of time.
    Former inspectors general of police (IGPs) as well as officers of Police Service of Pakistan (PSP) including Khawaja Khalid Farooq, Shaukat Javed, and Tariq Pervez took to the Twitter after formation of the committee, last week, and argued how PAS officers could bring reforms in Punjab Police having no such experience. They also stressed that the report of Law & Justice Commission of Pakistan on police reforms recently submitted to the Supreme Court should be implemented in letter and spirit instead of wasting time in forming new committees.

    Last week, Prime Minister Imran Khan had constituted a high-powered committee to suggest reforms in the Punjab police on the pattern of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and primary role was given to two PAS officers; Interior Secretary Major (retd) Azam Suleman and Principal Secretary to the PM Muhammad Azam Khan. Two other PAS officers including chief secretaries of Punjab and KP, Yousuf Naseem Khokhar and Naveed Kamran were also made part of the committee as its members. IGP Punjab Amjad Javed Saleemi and IGP KP Salahuddin Khan Mehsud have also been included in the committee.

    Former IGP Punjab Khawaja Khalid Farroq, who is also former National Coordinator National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) took to the Twitter and said: “DMG will suggest police reforms. Why can’t the govt study report prepared by Law & Justice Committee under the aegis of SCP?”

    Retired PSP officer Tariq Parvez, who is also former NC NACTA and Director General of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) through a Tweet said: “A new police reforms committee set up by PM, manned primarily by DMG officers and only two IGs. Interesting, the DMG officers will share their experience of Model Town massacre and how to stay untouched”.
    Shaukat Javed, former Punjab IGP and ex-director general Intelligence Bureau (IB) tweeted,” “Punjab government and federal government have notified committees on police reforms. Both are heavily filled with officers of PAS. A report on the same subject under Pakistan Law and Justice Commission was submitted to CJP on January 14 which should be implemented rather wasting time on new committees.” Asif Razzak, an retired officer of Police Service of Pakistan (PSP) in a Tweet gave a reference to the PAS officers and said: “Looks no one interested in police reforms as task given to those who don’t know policing, no hope for general public to see change in police culture, they failed to deliver and serve the nation, how can they reforms other service.”

    DIG and former chief of Crime Investigation Agency Karachi Dr Jamil Ahmed through one of his Tweets said: “There is definitely no need for yet another bureaucrat committee as Law & Justice Committee has almost finished the same task under the farsighted and prudent oversight of SCP.”

    While announcing the police reforms committee, PM in a meeting directed the committee to formulate recommendations to depoliticize the police, purge it of corruption, and build its capacity. PM especially said that the committee should point out professional inabilities of Punjab Police so that Sahiwal like incidents could be avoided in future.

    Before this, PTI government had formed two committees to reform the Punjab Police since it came into power in August this year. On September 18, it constituted the ‘Commission on Police Reforms and Implementation’ in Punjab appointing former KP IGP Nasir Khan Durrani as its head. However, Durrani resigned on October 9 soon after the Punjab government had transferred then Punjab IGP Muhammad Tahir and replaced him with Saleemi.
    The government again formed another high-powered committee, appointing the Punjab home secretary as its head while Punjab police chief was made as its member. This committee also became controversial when some senior PSP officers criticised the Punjab government for appointing a bureaucrat as head of the committee to reform the police.
