Sindh Police to establish counterterrorism university


February 12, 2016


The Sindh Police Department has decided to establish a counterterrorism university, said an official statement on Thursday.

The decision was taken after senior police officers met Home Minister Sohail Anwer Sial.

The proposal for the formation of a counterterrorism university came from Special Security Unit (SSU) chief Maqsood Ahmed Memon.

The first formal meeting of Sindh Police Management Board was held under the chairmanship of the home minister at the SSU Headquarters.

Operational, financial and administrative matters of the police department came under discussion at the meeting, which was attended by Sindh Inspecter General of Police Ghulam Hyder Jamali, the additional inspectors general of traffic, research and development, Special Branch Karachi Range, the CTD and crimes, the SSU chief and other senior officers.

The police management board accorded due approval to the 'promise of peace' project.  Memon gave a presentation about the project and outlined its benefits for the citizens. The chairman and members of the board directed him to make efforts on a priority basis for the establishment of Institute of Peace and Policing Studies (counter terrorism university), police facilitation centers, and police emergency service 911.

SSU AIG Memon informed the board that the counter terrorism university would be a learning and research centre of international standards to combat terrorism in the region with focus on a study and identify ideology and new trends of terrorism and terrorists’ modus operandi.

"The university will cater to the development of new training for police personnel of all ranks in view of changing criminal and terrorists strategies,” he added. 

Memon was confident that the operation of the project would help implement the National Action Plan in the province. He told the participants that the police facilitation centers would provide 24/7 services to citizens through a one-window process and help desk. "The help desk is intended to provide a trouble-free interface and guidance for all sorts of public complaints.”

The SSU chief stated that Police Emergency Service 911 was a novel idea to integrate Madadgar 15, Muhafiz Force, Command & Control Centre and firefighting department, ambulance service, SSGC, KE, KWSB and DHA so as to facilitate the citizens.
