Police Education and Training in Pakistan

Fasihuddin

Abstract:
Police Training and Education may have different meanings to different people, but for an
effective and efficient police, proper training and education are one of the most important areas which need attention and resources. Contrary to modern world, police training and education are the depressingly neglected aspects of police system in Pakistan. The current police training and education in Pakistan are not commensurate with the new challenges and complexity of crimes facing the police organization. Even the police officers don’t find themselves fully equipped, trained (in what sense, through weapons or training?) and competent to meet the challenges posed by the modern day serious and organized crimes. This situation demands a critical review of the existing system of police training and education in Pakistan.
