Public Safety is one of the top-most priorities of any Government. A safe and secure environment is essential for economic growth, social prosperity and political development of a society. Police, as the primary law enforcement agency in the province, bears the responsibility for providing safety and security through control of crime and maintenance of public order. The Government has spent huge sums of money in order to inculcate functional specialization in the departments as well as equipping the police with necessary hardware.
The present Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa attaches the highest priority to the welfare of the common man and takes policy initiatives to provide better, safe and secure environment for which Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police has a major contribution
The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is fully committed to ensure a peaceful environment in which people could live and work without even the sunlight fear; and play a vital role in the progress of province which has been on the front line during the war against terrorism. The force has displayed outstanding professionalism, bravery and courage in defending of its motherland. However, successful policing requires the help and support of the public. Therefore, it is high time that public be involved in the policing process; they should be informed of policing plan and priorities as well as problems. In short, the police has to win the trust and confidence of public and this will be possible only when police takes the public on board.
I am very glad to know that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police has launched its website which will not only keep the public informed of the police performance but will also provide an opportunity to the public to communicate and interact with the police for making complaints and suggestions and keep police updated about any unlawful activities around. This will definitely help improve the overall performance of the police. I appreciate it very much.
