Islamabad police to ensure friendly ecology: IGP
The Islamabad Police are a very professional force and strive to promote community relations and gain public support by organizing sports programs as well as after school activities for students.
Inspector General of Police (IGP) Islamabad Qazi Jamil ur Rehman said this on Tuesday during the closing ceremony of the police summer camp school.
IGP Islamabad said the goal of holding such a camp near the police is to bridge the gap between the police and the public. He said the Islamabad police are working to strengthen relationships with the community and to familiarize children with police work.
Islamabad police held a 30-day summer camp for children aged 6 to 15 at the H-11 police headquarters in Islamabad, he said, adding that the children above of age were admitted to basic computer training, swimming, horseback riding, martial arts and other courses.
A total of 218 children attended the summer school this year and received special lectures on self-defense and child protection.
On occasion, security from DIG Waqar Ur Din Syed, DIG HQ Kamran Aadil, parents of children from SSP headquarters and other police officials were also present.
The IGP said that the Islamabad police got a very good response in these summer camps which have been held since 2002.
He stated that this summer camp will continue in the years to come due to a very positive response and that the SSP (head office) has gone to great lengths for the success of this program.
He said that the Islamabad police are a role model for other law enforcement agencies and that the children attending this summer camp will remember it for the rest of their lives.
The parents of the children thanked the Islamabad police for organizing this healthy activity and hoped that the liaison between the police and the public would improve in the future. Later, the children presented various skills learned in this camp.
