Towards police reform


Police reforms have been a much debated subject in Pakistan for many years but there seems to be no headway in revamping the department. The department is still marred by nepotism, corruption and mismanagement. In the prevalent situation, the police have also been on the target list of terrorists and with such deteriorated condition of police, they seem to be helpless in the face of this aggression. It is imperative that if the law and order situation of the country is to be improved, the authorities will have to take concrete steps to address the ills facing this institution.
