Addressing on the occasion, IGP Dr. Sanaullah Abbasi said that professionally trained jawans could meet the impending challenges in a befitting manner and could easily achieve their targets in the field.

The KP Police chief disclosed that equipping police jawans of merged districts was his top most priority and vowed that police (Ex-Levies and Khasadars) would be equipped with latest training and their hidden capabilities would further be polished.

The IGP thanked Pakistan Army for extending full cooperation in imparting training to the police personnel of the merged areas.
