Performance: SP Mujahid and Dolphin Force Bilal Zafar has said that the role of the police response unit (PERU) is important in curbing crime. He added patrolling and snap checking have created the sense of security among citizens besides protecting lives and properties of Lahorites. He expressed these views while reviewing performance of the force during the last month. PERU responded to 1,265 true emergency calls and help citizens in distress. The response time of the force was also analyzed. PERU checked 132,303 suspected persons during patrolling and snap checking out of which 242 under observation persons were handed over to local police.
