Ijaz Ahmad Shah Inaugurates Firing Simulator At Police Lines HQ.

ISLAMABAD: A state of the art firing simulator was inaugurated at Police Lines Headquarters on Monday to provide personnel with better training and practicing facilities.
The Rs20 million simulator was set up at the School of Investigation, with financial assistance from the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
Minister for Interior Ijaz Ahmad Shah visited Police Lines for the inauguration. He also visited the e-learning facilities established at the School of Information Technology, where police officials are trained in IT as part of the effort to digitise the police force and its work.
During his visit, Mr Shah laid a wreath at the Martyrs Mausoleum and planted a sapling as part of the prime minister’s Clean and Green Pakistan initiative.
He also spoke to the press about the vulnerability of the police against the backdrop of security and terrorism-relatd issues.
He said the leadership of the police department has to play a role for the welfare of the force and the families of its martyrs, other than the government. He added that if martyrs’ families and police officials did not have packages available for their well being, the head of the department was responsible.
Mr Shah said the police was the most vulnerable department, as its demerits were heavily criticized but achievements for the good of the public went unacknowledged.
In response to questions from the media, he said he had learned about former president Gen Pervez Musharraf coming back to Pakistan through the media and did not have any more information. He said half of the newspapers he had read quoted Mr Musharraf as saying he was coming, while the rest said he would not be visiting the country.
He added, to another question, that security matters were devolved after the 18th Amendment and therefore questions about the security situation in Sindh should be brought to the Sindh chief minister.
Mr Shah was given a detailed presentation on the performance of the Islamabad police in the last six months, which was attended by all senior officers. He praised the police for their ongoing campaign against drugs and the land mafia.
He was also briefed on police initiatives in the digitization of the investigation process, and the establishment of the latest complaints redress al system at the Central Police Office and the offices of the senior superintendent of police (operations) (SSP) and SSP traffic.
He said there had not been any scandals or major mishaps or mishandling by the Islamabad police in the last few months. After the briefing, the minister addressed police personnel and emphasized the free registration of crimes and respect for citizens.
He also highlighted the importance of the police and their access to the public. He said senior command should take care of police officials and treat them as family.
He also directed the Islamabad Traffic Police to begin an awareness campaign on traffic regulations and ensure their enforcement on the highway.
