Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ghulam Nabi Memon, said on Sunday that Sindh police have decided to provide housing and health amenities to their officers in order to boost their performance.
“I’m in touch with the planning and development department and working on delayed housing projects,” the newly appointed Inspector General of Sindh stated.
He stated that the department would shortly begin a plan to provide the largest number of housing units possible to accommodate the full crew.
The police chief also wanted to develop installment-based housing plans for police officers so that low-wage officers may have access to affordable housing.
“We’re also bringing a health card facility for police officers, which will allow them to receive free treatment in private hospitals,” he said, adding that the medical card’s maximum capacity will be Rs. 250,000.
Ghulam Nabi Memon, speaking on how a large portion of the budget allotted to the police is used, claimed that 85 percent of it is used to pay the wages of police officers.
Soon after his appointment, the Inspector General of Sindh took drastic steps to strengthen policing in the province, including appointing female Head Registrars and duty officers to increase women’s engagement in law enforcement.
