The street patrol units, vehicles of police stations and Eagle Squad would conduct checking at markets and street as per third tier.

A total of 40 motorbikes have been provided to all Zonal SPs who would submit the checking proforma daily to the office of SSP (Operations).

Additional SP Islamabad would be in-charge of all patrolling affairs being made through motorbikes while Zonal SPs would conduct inspection of all vehicles performing duties according to this plan.

He said he would also conduct surprise checking and asked all officials to properly brief their subordinates while assigning duties under this new security plan.

He said that every policeman would have to perform effectively as per SOP and to give better feedback. Police officials, he said, would have to ensure presence in their respective areas to monitor security related efforts while decent attitude should be adopted during interaction with citizens.

No laxity in this regard would be tolerated, he warned.
