Keeping in view the rise in street crimes in Lahore, the newly established Dolphin Force is a welcome step by the Punjab government to curb street crimes in the provincial capital. The force has been created with the vision to safe and secure Lahore by controlling street crimes with the help of state of the art technology and human skill. The Punjab government’s initiative to have an agile and modern patrolling police unit in Lahore will certainly help improve police culture and provide sense of security to the general public. Since it is the responsibility of the government to control crime and maintain law and order situation therefore, the establishment of Dolphin Force is a landmark achievement of the government to wipe out terrorists and criminals from the provincial capital.

It is important to mention here that the inspiration for such a force came to Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif from Turkey as the Dolphin police was initially established in 1973 in Istanbul Turkey. It is hoped that the Dolphin Force would chase the criminals in the metropolitan city of Lahore with a spirit to make the lives and properties of Lahories more secure and safe.
