Subsequent to the meeting held with IGP Punjab All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Punjab and the CCPO have agreed on Tuesday to set up Industry Police Liaison Committee (IPLC) office to control growing incidents of industrial crimes.

In a meeting held at the APTMA Punjab office and chaired jointly by the Senior Vice Chairman APTMA Wisal A. Monnoo and the CCPO Lahore Aslam Tareen, setting up of a joint office was agreed upon for effective communication, control and cooperation under the arrangement.

The APTMA members shared their security concerns and mentioned the incidents affecting their day to day to business on ground. It was pointed out that some 35 complaints have recently been brought to the attention of the Inspector General Police (IGP). Moreover, potential criminal threat hampering an environment conducive to further investment was highlighted.

APTMA members proposed verification of labour force at factories to deter criminal activities. Both the sides also agreed upon the appointment of a focal person from either side for future liaison between the industry and the police department.

The CCPO Lahore agreed to the proposal that the liaison network should be set up at the APTMA premises, properly linked to the police department. He also offered training to the security staff of factories by the police trainers.

Next meeting of the two sides would be held on 27th April to finalize setting up of a joint office and further necessary arrangements.
