Addressing on the occasion the IGP Dr. Sanaullah Abbasi said that professionally trained jawans could meet the impending challenges in a befitting manner and could easily achieve their targets in the field. The IGP pointed out that due to many geographical and administrative problems policing in the merged districts was extremely difficult which necessitated that the police personnel should be well-trained to enable them to prove their mettle in maintenance of law and order as well as in defence of the borders of the country. The IGP disclosed that equipping police jawans of merged districts was his top most priority and vowed that police (Ex-Levies and Khasadars) would be equipped with latest training and their hidden capabilities would further be polished. The IGP KP thanked Pakistan Army for extending full cooperation in imparting training to the police personnel of the merged areas.
