Police help service centres set up for Eid days


The Islamabad police, in connection with elaborate measures on the occasion of Eidul Azha, have established police help service centres at the main markets and other areas of the city to provide immediate assistance to the citizens in case of any problem to them.
Islamabad SSP Muhammad Yousuf Malik has directed all SDPOs and SHOs to ensure effective security arrangements on the occasion of Eid in their respective areas when people would throng the markets for shopping and also in the residential sectors when they would leave for their native towns to celebrate Eid with their dear ones.
According to a press release, implementing the effective measures, Police help service centres have been established at Supermarket, Jinnah Supermarket, G-9 (Karachi Company) and F-10 Markaz where police officers with staff will remain present to assist the citizens in case of any problem. This centre will also ensure checking of police patrolling teams in the areas.
Instead of going to a police station, the citizens can lodge their complaints with these centres which will work from 5:30pm to 12:30am. The SSP said the purpose of this step was to promote the concept of community policing and ensure steps for immediate redress of public complaints.
Talking to Pakistan Today, a senior police official said a final security plan for Eid days would be released on Saturday (today). He revealed around 2,000 police officials would perform security duties.
