Quetta’s first Women’s Police Station has been transformed into a smart police station. The police station’s one-window facility will now digitally register First Information Reports (FIRs).
The facility is intended to provide female citizens with character certificates, police verification, driver’s licences, and the ability to report lost items all under one roof.
The Women’s Police Station’s front desk is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Saba Raheel, Duty Officer of the Police Services Center (PQM) desk of the police station, stated that plans had been made to provide services for women under one roof at the PQM counter.
Any type of character certificate, police verification, registration of renters and domestic employees, or loss of any kind of objects or papers should be submitted to women with supporting documentation.
Citizens can obtain an information report, a local learner driving licence, a driving licence renewal, and an international driving licence in 3 to 30 minutes.
The police station, the province’s first of its kind, was dedicated in May 2022 by former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Balochistan Mohsin Hassan Butt.
Zarguna Kakar, the widow of Balochistan Police officer Manzoor Tareen, had been appointed as the force’s first Station House Officer (SHO).
Balochistan, Pakistan’s poorest province, has some of the country’s worst development indicators and the lowest literacy rate, less than 27 percent among women. Long have cultural barriers prevented girls and women in the region from seeking police assistance on their own.
