The budget for police stations in all provinces was approved on Friday – and first, the funds will be spent on police stations, not SPs, as was done before.
Speaking on this issue, a Karachi police spokesman said that under the budget, a new strategy had been designed to better utilize police station resources and control corruption, adding that the move would also allow the promotion of various officers, who previously could not improved due to lack of funds.
The spokesman said that the funds allocated in the budget would be spent on city police SHOs, traffic police SHOs and sub-division officers.
The proposal to allocate funds to the police station was made in 2011 by the then Sindh Police financial director Dost Ali Baloch. It was appreciated by IGP Sindh Fayaz Laghari and, after completing all legal requirements, was submitted to the Sindh government for approval.
That was approved by the former Sindh chief minister, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, after the initial budget was approved for 19 police stations in Karachi and 41 in Sindh. This police station is allocated a budget on a regular basis until the 2013-14 fiscal year. However, no funds have been allocated to the police station after that, until this year.
