LAHORE:Inspector General of Police Punjab Inam Ghani has said that under the Prime Minister's Police Reforms Vision steps are being taken in Punjab Police on a priority basis and it has been decided to conduct health profiling of police officers and personnel so that the police force could be purge of the black sheep using drugs.

The IG directed the IAB to tighten the noose around such officers and officials. He said that any person using drugs would not be a part of Punjab Police in any capacity and if any officer or official of Punjab Police was found involved in drugs use during health profiling, departmental and legal action would be taken against them at the same time.

He directed the officers concerned that in order to make the process of health profiling transparent and purposeful, the command and field officers should monitor the process themselves and use all possible means to identify the officers and personnel involved in this heinous act. He said that the officers and personnel identified during the health profiling should be subjected to drug test from authentic and standard health laboratories so that the reports made in the light of the results could not be challenged.
