KP police in Tribal districts

A ceremony was held at Central Police Office (CPO) Peshawar on Monday in which the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC) handed over 20 B6 level armoured Pickups to Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police for combating terrorism in the Newly Merged Districts. As said the UNODC is helping KP Police in combatting terrorism and organized crimes in the new merged districts of KPK under the agreement between KP Police and UNODC. Speaking on the occasion, the Inspector General Police KPK Moazzam Jah Ansari elaborated the challenges confronting the KP police and the steps taken for effective policing and capacity building of the police Force in the merged districts.

According to the IGP, the CTD units have been operationalized in addition to training of 17 thousand Levies and Khasadars by Pak-Army. He further said that all available resources are being utilized for the capacity building of the police personnel in the area to enable them to maintain peace and tranquility in the tribal districts.

KP Police fought the war on terrorism shoulder to shoulder with Pakistan Army, because Ex. FATA and other parts of the province were the main targets of the terrorists during the past. Hundreds of Policemen, officers, Khasadars and Levies personnel laid their lives while protecting the lives of their countrymen. The people of KP never forget the SHO Abdul Razzaq, Additional IGP Safwat Ghayur and many others valiant Police Officers for their bravery, courage and sacrifices for peace in the country. Pakistan Army played an important role in training and capacity building of KP Police, Frontier Constabulary, Levies and Khasadars by providing specialist training in Counter Terrorism, quick response, dealing with improvised explosive devices (IEDs), law enforcement, use of modern weapons and physical fitness. After successful transformation of FC, Levies and Khasadars Force into a well-trained and disciplined Police Force, now this force is capable of performing its duties independently in the tribal districts in coming days. It is suggestable to the IGP KP, that besides typical policing, KP Police needs to rebirth its informant network at village and Street level to establish its strong writ in the province particularly in newly merged tribal districts to thwart future challenges.

MUZAFFARABAD: Azad Jammu and Kashmir’s (AJK) first female-run police station opened in Rawalakot on Monday with an aim to build confidence of women seeking redressal of any kind of injustice or legal advice.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Sohail Habib Tajik told Dawn that initially the station was provided with an 11-member team, led by Sub-Inspector Zahida Hanif as station house officer (SHO).

In response to a question, Mr Tajik said officials at the station would investigate complaints about harassment of women in workplaces or educational institutions, cyber stalking, child abuse, domestic issues mainly violence, civil issues including property disputes as well as cases in which females were the accused.

“As far as gender gap is concerned, Pakistan stands at 153rd position at the international level, with only three nations behind it. Establishment of women police stations is one step towards minimising that gap,” he said, adding that after Rawalakot, one station each would also be established in the remaining two divisional headquarters of Muzaffarabad and Mirpur.

He said even though AJK was comparatively a peaceful region, however recently an increase has been seen in incidents of crimes against women.

“These police stations will encourage women to speak and identify the patterns of crimes which they are usually hesitant to share with male officials,” he said, expressing hope that these stations will also become nerve centres for research on crimes against women.

Though the strength of policewomen in AJK is hardly 150 out of 8,000, the region saw appointment of its first female SHO in a male police station in October 2016. Then sub-inspector Shaista Hussain had held this position in Saddar Police Station Muzaffarabad for about 13 months. Currently, she is serving as chief law instructor (inspector) in Police Training School, Muzaffarabad.

Ms Jabeen Kausar, then inspector, who was abroad at that time was also appointed house officer in Hajira Police Station in Poonch, soon after her return home after two weeks. Ms Kausar was recently promoted as the first female DSP in AJK and is currently serving in Sudhnoti district as SDPO.

US and KP government inaugurate police facilities

The Frontier Post


PESHAWAR: The US government, through the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Section (INL), inaugurated new KP Police and Frontier Constabulary facilities worth a total of over $18 million.

“This week’s events are the newest steps in the long partnership between the United States and Pakistan,” US Consul General Richard H. Riley said. “The United States hopes these facilities will help the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police and Frontier Constabulary meet their goals of training increasingly capable, professional officers and expanding law enforcement services into the newly-merged districts.” Regarding facilities for women that were constructed, INL Director Mark Tervakoski noted, “We are happy we can assist with infrastructure that will allow more women to join the ranks of Pakistani law enforcement. Overall, these projects are about increasing the security and prosperity of all Pakistanis, of all genders.”

The inaugurated facilities include a Police Training Center in Shahkas, ten check posts in the newly merged districts, an addition to the Frontier Constabulary training center in Michni, and completion of the second phase of construction at the KP Joint Police Training Center in Nowshera. Officials also celebrated the ground-breaking for a new accommodation barracks for female trainees at the Shahkas facility.

The new Shahkas training facility has a 500-officer capacity and is already playing an important role in the training of former Levies security forces as they transition into the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial police. The ten check posts in Khyber, Mohmand, Kurram, and other tribal districts will smooth the transition of former Levies forces into the KP Police and help extend police services to the citizens of the newly merged districts. The Michni Police Training Center addition will assist the Frontier Constabulary in meeting its goal of expanding its ranks by an additional 5000 personnel. The completion of the second and final construction phase of the Joint Police Training Center in Nowshera, which included the construction of forty buildings,
among them facilities for female trainees, will increase its capacity from 540 to 1700 trainees.

For almost 40 years, the United States and Pakistan have worked to improve citizen security and enhance police capacity across Pakistan. The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, part of the US Department of State, works in more than 90 countries to help combat crime and corruption; counter the narcotics trade; improve police institutions; and promote court systems that are fair and accountable
