United States Consul General Brian Heath provides carriers to Sindh Police

Karachi, May 21, 2015 (PPI-OT): U.S. Consul General Brian Heath and officials from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) transferred four carriers to the Sindh police. Sindh Inspector General Police Ghulam Haider Jamali and INL Attaché Brooke de Montluzin were present at the handover.

This is the second instalment of vehicles, specifically for Sindh female police officers. The troop carriers — valued at $126,000 — will improve mobility and officer safety. Since 2011, the INL Police Assistance Program has provided $36 million in assistance to the Sindh police. This includes armoured personnel carriers, pick-up trucks, forensic equipment, bulletproof jackets and helmets, thermal imaging devices, and global positioning systems (GPS).

In addition, INL also assists Sindh Police with curriculum development, including specialized skills such as investigations, human rights, officer safety, and forensics. INL assistance equipped three women police stations in Karachi, supplying communications equipment, personal protective gear, first aid kits, coaster buses, vans, and pickup trucks.
