ISLAMABAD (APP) - Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that lessons will have to learn from past mistakes.

Addressing the passing out parade of the 48th Specialized Training Programme of Police Service of Pakistan at National Police Academy, the prime minister lauded the role of police in eradicating terrorism from the country and maintaining law and order.

He also paid tribute to the immense sacrifices rendered by the police force in the line of duty. “The police would live up to the expectations of people and would never refrain from any sacrifice to maintain law and order.”

The prime minister also emphasized setting up a counter-terrorism centre and forensic laboratory in the capital and urged working out a project in this regard. “A Counter-Terrorism Department and Punjab Science Agency were role model departments, which needed to be replicated in other parts of the country.”

Shehbaz Sharif congratulated the cadets who achieved awards in their professional field and also expressed satisfaction over the contribution of women police force towards the national development.

“I urge the cadets to demonstrate dedication, professionalism and commitment in their field. The government despite financial constraints would provide funds to Islamabad police to enhance its professional capacity.
