Police play a crucial role in a civilized society. Police maintain peace and order by imposing laws in society. All over the world, mostly in developed countries, the profession of police has a respectable place in the society, and the public gives respect and honor to this profession but in Pakistan, police have to face severe criticism from the public. Although this criticism is fair to some extent it is not fair to another extent because, in Pakistan, the government is not providing such facilities which developed countries are providing to their police force.
Firstly, developed countries of the world are providing new and advanced vehicles, helicopters, and other advanced technology to the police force but in Pakistan, the police force has to use inoperable vehicles and technology to capture advanced criminals. Sometimes, due to the inoperable vehicles and technology, police do not capture criminals immediately and by doing this, police have to face criticism from the public and government. Therefore, the government should provide new and advanced vehicles and technology to the police force so that police could capture the criminals immediately.
Secondly, in developed countries, governments offer different investigative courses. In these courses, policemen and officers learn how to deal with criminals and how they can make the criminals accept their crimes without hurting them physically but in Pakistan, the government is not providing such courses regularly. Occasionally, the government provides these investigation courses but they do not fulfill the criteria of advanced investigation courses. The government should regularly offer such courses which fulfill the criteria of advanced investigative courses.
Thirdly in developed countries, Governments provide full support to the policemen and officers in the completion of their tasks and appreciate in all circumstances but in Pakistan, the Government appreciates the police officers and men if they do admirable work. when policemen and officers do any mistake in the completion of their tasks, the Government criticizes the policemen and officers. This type of government’s behavior discourages the policemen and officers. The government should support and appreciate in every circumstance although if they do any mistake in the completion of their tasks.
Fourthly, in all over the world mostly in the developed countries, public and people who attach to the case, provide full support in the investigation of the case and do not raise hurdle in the investigation but in Pakistan, public and people who attach to the case, do not provide complete support to the police in the investigation of the case and also raise hurdle in the investigation deliberately. This type of public behavior and people who attach to the case, become a reason for late justice in Pakistan. Public and people who attached to the case should provide complete support to the police in the investigation without any interest.
At the end of the fifth, we criticize the police because the police take bribery from the Public. I also agree with all those who criticize the police on this point but if we want police should be the change we should change our behavior and should not give bribery to the police in any situation besides this, the changing of our behavior is also very necessary because if we will not change we cannot expect that police will be change because people who select in the police force also come to the common public.
In a short cut, I want to say, the police of my country also perform well like developed Countries’ police but Government will have to provide advance vehicles, courses, and other advance technology to the police force and besides this, we will have to change our behavior and will have to provide complete support to the police in the completion of their tasks and will also have not to raise any hurdle type of hurdle in the investigation and completion of their tasks.
