ISLAMABAD: To change the typical police culture and upholding the slogan of reforming police performance, the Punjab government would set up 100 model police stations (MPSs) throughout the province.

Responding to the question of PML lawmaker Ahmad Shah Khagga, Chief Minister Punjab Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif informed the House through a written reply during the first sitting of 7th session that 100 MPSs would be set up throughout the province in various phases.

In first phase, work on 51 MPSs has been completed while rest of 49 police stations would be soon converted into MPSs. In Pakistan’s largest province of Punjab, where half of the total 750 police stations in 36 districts are functioning in rented buildings, the government is establishing 100 MPSs with the motto of making the police corruption- free and the province crime-free.

Regarding provision of logistic sup- port and other facilities, the Chief Minister said each MPS will be provided with one pick-up, ten motorbikes, eight CCTV cameras, one computer, one printer, one scanner, one generator, five tables, 30 chairs, two cupboards, one reception counter, one revolving chair and four sofa sets.

The chief minister said lock-ups would be completely renovated and their whole buildings would be properly distempered, adding facilities would be indistinguishable as buildings have been designed with substantial arrangements for the process of investigations through modern gadgetry and computer technology. Police officials having professional abilities would be posted at MPs so that mutual confidence among the people and police could be promoted by changing traditional police station culture.

The MPS is a symbol of protection and honor for a man, where services revolve around the people and officers would be responsible to protect the life, property and liberty of people with the aim – Live to Serve.
