Pakistan hiring 700 special sleuths to solve growing crimes

 LAHORE, October 22 (Internews): Authorities in Pakistan's Punjab
 province are launching a $2 million special investigations cadre for its
 police to expedite control of crime, officials said here Monday.
 Over 700 investigators will be recruited in the provincial police, the
 largest in Pakistan, during the current financial year, ending June next
 year, as part of the sweeping police reforms in the country.
 The provincial government has decided to reduce the existing number of
 police training institutes by 50 per cent and strengthen those with
 optimal financial resources, besides requisitioning services of trained
 police inspectors for scientific training to 3,650 police officials
 every year across Punjab.
 Currently, police officials in Punjab perform multifarious duties
 including investigations, prosecution, administrative and traffic
 responsibilities, in addition to watch and ward duties.
 Due to shortage of duty staff a police official has to investigate an
 average of 400 a year, which means cases are not speedily investigated.
 "The creation of separate investigation cadre and recruitment of 700 new
 investigating officials will go a long way in bringing much-needed
 relief to the citizens," a government official said.
 It has also been decided to that no official will from now on be
 assigned more than 50 cases a year. Each would be provided a motorcycle
 and some additional staff. This year alone, 192 sub inspectors and 3,104
 constables have been recruited.
 The planned three-year police reforms for all the four provinces of
 Pakistan - Balochistan, Punjab, Sindh and North West Frontier Province -
 will cost $20 million. The federal government would provide funds.
