Police put on high alert


February 18, 2015

IN the wake of a suicidal attack on the Qila Gujar Singh Police Line, Inspector General of Police Punjab Mushtaq Ahmad Sukhera has directed the police to remain on their toes across the Punjab province.
He directed the Field Officers to constitute special police teams to ensure round-the-clock patrolling in their respective areas. The officers of the SP rank have been directed to personally supervise the police patrolling in their jurisdictions.
The provincial police chief further directed the officers to focus on the preventive policing to thwart any possible act of terrorism in the future. The IGP stressed the police officers to ensure proper and effective armed patrolling around all the government installations, important buildings, religious places, parks, public places, bazaars, and commercial markets. The police are also directed to step up armed patrolling around the police posts to keep a vigilant eye on the activities of the miscreants.
He ordered the police to intensify snap-checking at the important points to check the movement of the miscreants. However, the police are strictly directed not to create trouble for the general public unnecessarily and behave politely with them during the search or snap-checking. The police are also asked to get help from the local agencies and keep liaison with them.
The provincial police chief further said that apart from providing security to VIPs security, there must be proper security arrangements during the movement of the police force around the police headquarters. The IGP also ordered the police to maintain the data about the empty residences and rent-houses from all over the province.
