I G Punjab Police

Posted by on Jun 03, 2012 | Comments Off on I G Punjab Police


It is indeed an honour to serve the province of the Punjab as a head of its peace keeping and law enforcing department. I pray Allah the Almighty to help me in carrying out my responsibilities with dedication and devotion and hope that the officers and the staff would do their job with the same spirit and enthusiasm and loyalty. We should be clear in our perceptions that we are here to provide peace, security and safety to our fellow citizens and to make the Punjab a model for other provinces. I am determined to get rid of vice, crime, lawlessness etc with the help and assistance of my eager and energetic officers, officials and the Jawans.

I shall do my best to win the trust of the people of the Punjab.

The vision of the Punjab Police is to be professional, service-oriented, accountable and free from corruption.
Our mission is to fight crime and win by providing dynamic and effective law enforcement. This will be possible only when investigation is free from all malpractices.

The Punjab Police will strive to uphold core values like integrity, courage, loyalty, and fairness in order to promote professionalism and trust. I expect courage and honesty to be the guiding force.

The operational priorities of the Punjab Police are as follows: maintain peace and order with public partnership; combat terrorism, sectarianism, and militancy; ensure security of vital installations and institutions; eliminate kidnappings for ransom; enforce traffic discipline; prompt and free registration of cases; fair and speedy investigations; professional and prompt response in calls for service; effectively redress public complaints; prevent highway, house, commercial, and street robberies; zero tolerance for violence, especially against women and children; arrest criminals and fugitives from justice; disseminate correct information to the public; and develop performance indicators along with monitoring mechanism.

The administrative priorities of the Punjab Police are as follows: internal accountability against corruption and misuse of authority; merit and fair play in recruitments, postings and promotions; accessibility to force and redress their problems; security of tenures at operational levels; emphasis on discipline, training and capacity building; up-gradation of equipment and infrastructure; welfare of junior ranks; incentives and rewards for good performance; and above all to promote team work for success.

As Punjab Police officers, we have to be more than just protectors of the public. We should be guardians of the people and friends to the community. We must be a service of tenacious individuals, bound by a common purpose to serve and go beyond the call of duty.

Our motto to achieve the above priorities would be “Performance with Purpose.” Let us all try and make a difference. May Allah guide and help us. Ameen

IG for expediting terror cases

LAHORE: INSPECTOR General (IG) of Police Punjab Javed Iqbal on Monday has directed the officials that all pending cases of terrorism should be expedited so that terrorists must be awarded punishments according to the rules.

IG Punjab Javed Iqbal has said this while addressing the CPO and all DPOs of Rawalpindi region at the office of Regional Police Officer Rawalpindi on Monday. The IGP assigned them three tasks.

They were directed to first evaluate the crime trends and then adopt the effective strategy for elimination.

The second task was relating to the vehicle impounded in various police stations of Rawalpindi.

The IGP directed them to expedite the cases of these vehicles and hand them over to their owners after completing thorough investigation and due formalities of law.
