Junior Command Course to increase efficiency of police officers: IG Durrani


PESHAWAR, Aug 6:  Inspector General Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police Nasir Khan Durrani here on Thursday said that the completion of Junior Command Course will increase the working efficiency of police officers in the province. Addressing a gathering of 20 police officers selected for junior command course in Peshawar Police headquarter, IG Durrani said that the junior command course is introduced for SSP rank officers to be promoted to SP rank. He said that the program will enable police officers to do policing duties according to modern techniques to uproot crimes. He urged the police officers participating in the course to learn the course and bring it into practice. It is pertinent to be mentioned here that, in order to ensure transparency in the promotion of high ranks of police a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) for Junior Command Course was signed between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police force and Pakistan Provincial Service Academy (PPSA) Peshawar. Additional IGP Headquarter and Director General (PPSA) signed the MOU. It may be recalled that for the first time in the history of the country Junior Command Course was introduced for the mandatory training of DSPs with a view to enable them to perform their duties efficiently. The Academy will train nominated DSPs for a period of three months. The module of the course will be provided by the department which will also pay to the Academy for the course. It may be recalled that a system was in-vogue in the force for the promotion from the constable to the rank of inspector under which they shall get promotion to the next rank after getting the mandatory training in the training centers but there was no such system for DSP to get promotion to the rank of SP. This prompted the police department to sign a MOU with the PPSA. It is hoped that it will go a long way in ensuring transparency in promotion of DSP to the rank of SP and strengthening the capacity building of the police force.
