I am indeed honoured to have been entrusted with the command of Punjab Constabulary. Established in 1972 as Punjab’s Reserve Police (PRP), it was renamed as Punjab Constabulary (PC) in 1986. PC is IGP Punjab’s reserve police to be deployed in support of Punjab Police in difficult and challenging situations that demand extra and decisive strike.
Over the years PC has assumed an important role in supporting the district police in challenging law and order and security situations throughout the province and the Federal Capital territory be it Moharram, General Elections, international matches, Katcha Operation or terrorism.
PC has always maintained high standards of discipline and professional commitment whenever and wherever deployed. Punjab Constabulary takes immense pride that 32 of its officials laid down their lives in the line of duty. Sacrifices of martyrs are a living testimony to the professional commitment PC attaches to maintaining public peace and order in the province. I take this opportunity to pay tribute to the martyrs and their families for sacrificing their today for nations’ tomorrow. I also pay my earnest tribute to the contributions made by my predecessors and will endeavour to consolidate their initiatives in strengthening the role and resolve of PC in supporting the law enforcement capacity of the Punjab Police and welfare of the Punjab Constabulary.
May Allah Almighty guide, help and support us in the performance of our duties.
