LAHORE - Following the directives of Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Amin Wains, the department has set new criteria for the police officials for their postings as stations house officers in Lahore.

A police spokesman said Monday that as per new policy the SHOs would be appointed keeping in view their eligibility, track-record, and performance.  DIG Operations Dr Haider Ashraf has constituted a three-member committee comprising SP Security, SP Headquarters, and the concerned divisional SP to assess the working and performance of the officers. The committee would send its recommendations to the DIG (Operation) prior to their postings as SHOs.  Amin Wains says that the new criteria would help the department post right and dedicated officers as SHOs at the police stations.

The SHOs found involved in malpractice would be taken to task.
