‘SMS service operational for policemen’s families’
LAHORE: The city police actively working towards facilitating the heirs of martyred and retiring staffers through its one of a kind SMS service Welfare Eye, said Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Amin Wains on Tuesday.
The App was inaugurated by the CCPO last year. This application is designed after several complaints from the families of martyred policemen as they were getting difficulties in obtaining benefits from different welfare projects designed for them.
He expressed these views during a ceremony in which Wajahat Ali, the son of late sub-inspector Abdul Majeed, was handed the keys to a motorcycle. Our officers and officials are assets for the department and the Lahore police force appreciates their services, he maintained.
He also vowed not to abandon the families of martyred, retired policemen while also promising to remain in constant communication, extending all possible assistance and cooperation to the families.
Under the app, the deserving families can send an SMS to the number 0301531515 if they need any help regarding welfare package. Five lady constables are assigned the task to deal with the families of deceased policemen to solve their problems.
The families had to face problems when visiting different offices to get their issues resolved.
