The peculiar nature of the policing challenges and issues necessitated out-of-the-box, unconventional and modern day solutions. It was in this backdrop that a diagnostic approach was devised with objective of addressing the challenges faced by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police. The Strategic Framework for KP Police aims at winning public trust through better service delivery and is predicated on the following pillars:
• Capacity building through modern training and incorporation of technological advances
• Structural reforms with the objective of improving the processes
• Enhanced community engagement
The Strategic Framework aims to achieve the desired results by ensuring optimum utilization of available resources.
Capacity building of the personnel through a comprehensive Training Policy and modern training facilities is indispensable and it has been one of the pillars of the Strategic Framework of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police. Training Needs Assessment was made, Training Policy formulated and facilities established. The training initiatives that have been undertaken include establishment of two new recruit training centers and qualitative improvement of recruit training; establishment of five specialized training schools for training police officers in the fields of Investigation, Intelligence, Tactics, Public Disorder and Explosives Handling. Furthermore, training has been made an integral and mandatory part of the career planning and progression of the Police officers. Two new promotional courses have been introduced; Advance Course for promotion to the rank of DSP and Junior Command Course for promotion to the rank of SP. Finally, Basic Elite Course has been made compulsory for all Upper and Lower candidates.
Finally, I would like to express my indebtedness to the Provincial Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for extending its unending guidance and support in the Police capacity building initiatives. I am confident that the above training projects and reforms shall go a long way in making the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police a truly professional service, capable of protecting the lives, property and honour of the citizens.
