Awards ceremony for Islamabad Police at ICCI September 27, 2013
Meeting at ICCI
 
Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry organized an award ceremony to give cash award and appreciation certificates to those police officers who played key role in the recovery of well-known businessman Mr. Muhammad Yousaf, owner of Mr. Books from abductors. Mr. Yousaf was abducted in May 2012 from near his shop in Supermarket, F-6, Islamabad for ransom of Rs.25 million and was recovered after two weeks with the hectic efforts of Islamabad Police. 

An amount of Rs. 1-million was distributed amongst police officers and constables. The beneficiaries included Raja Rahat Inspector, Raja Rauf Kiyani Inspector, Muhammad Ilyas SP, Muhammad Zahoor Malik ASI,  Zafar Iqbal Ranjha ASI and three constables.
 
Speaking at the occasion, Sultan Azam Temuri, Assistant Inspector General (Operations) Islamabad Police thanked ICCI for rewarding police officers and said that such acknowledgement and appreciation from public acts as a morale booster for police. He said the colonial rulers had made police a symbol of fear for people and Islamabad Police is still working under 1861 Act due to which that mindset still prevails.

However, Ch. Nisar Ali Khan, Interior Minister has now given a new vision to police to make Islamabad a model city and Islamabad Police a model police for the rest of the country.
 
Sharing highlights of the vision, he said our first priority is to change the culture of police stations to make them people friendly. For this purpose, modern looking Reporting Rooms are being established along with posting of Reception Officers in police stations to interact with public and coordinate all activities to facilitate them. 
 
He said to curb the violations of human rights, Human Resource Officers are also being planned in police stations. He said police citizen committees will be constituted to monitor the performance of policy and to resolve people problems. The use of latest technology is being enhanced and technology-based initiatives are being taken to make police presence on roads more effective, responsive and accountable. He said people will see marked improvement in police performance in coming days.
 
In his welcome address, Zafar Bakhtawari, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry said close working relationship between police and business community is essential to promote business activities and resolve businessmen problems. He appreciated the performance of Islamabad Police due to which crime rate in Islamabad is much lower as compared to other cities of the country. 
 
He said good performance of police is a source of satisfaction for businessmen as they feel confident while doing business in the federal capital due to its safe environment. He said due to operation in Karachi, criminals are now on the run to other cities and Islamabad Police should become more alert to cope with any untoward situation. He said the main objective of today’s ceremony is to acknowledge the role of dedicated police officers so that others could also feel motivated to perform well. 
 
He said Citizen Police Liaison Committees in Karachi and Faisalabad are doing goo d job to resolve problems and Islamabad Police should also constitute a CPLC giving ICCI proper representation so that problems of people could be resolved with joint efforts.
