ISLAMABAD: In an attempt to jar the bad cops of the city out of their obstinate ways, the Islamabad police hierarchy has decided to put them to shame, Dawn has learnt.
A points system has been introduced to judge their performance and the first such list has already gone up on the notice boards of police stations and offices and will be posted to their wives soon, according to police sources.
Performance of the police officers from the ranks of assistant sub-inspector to inspectors will be rated every month and one`s standing on the list will earn him praise or sneers from the family and comrades, said Superintendent of Police City Zone Capt (retired) Mohammad Ilyas.
A bad report or low standing is expected to shame the poor performer and make him give up his bad ways and do better. Points earned by an officer for his performance will help his superiors to assess his chances of promotion and rewards.
Capt (R) Ilyas said he designed the performance assessment system on the direction of Inspector General of Police Bani Amin Khan.
