Lahore is no longer a safe city to live in or even visit. Murders and crime are on the rise. Police do nothing about crime and more so focus on other little things which have nothing to do with their jobs. Only recently has a sharp spike in murders and robberies happened. PTI is doing nothing about this and heck I would say that PML(N), a more corrupt and dystopian kind of government did a better job of securing Lahore and preventing crime from happening. Corruption problems are only getting worse as time passes on.
Qasim Khan on Mar 23, 2021:
The situation on ground is really alarming. There is phenomenal rise in crime in Lahore in last few months. Corruption is rampant and you cannot get anything done without greasing the palms of police officials. No proper forum to complain in Lahore Police. Heard that police leadership of Lahore is busy infighting and in conspiracies against each other. Where is PM Imran Khan’s good governance ?
Rana Azhar Naveed on Mar 02, 2021:
Very bad crime and law and order situation. People are being looted in broad day light and PM Imran and CM Buzdar (Wasim Akram Plus) are enjoying. No place to make any complaint. How such a situation is allowed to continue. Only Allah Almighty can help in such a critical situation.
Qaiser Ali Malik on Jan 30, 2021:
The crime situation is getting worse on ground. There is phenomenal rise in crime in Lahore in last few months. Corruption is rampant and nothing can be got done without greasing the palms of Lahore police officers. A friend of mine has personally suffered at the hands of corrupt police officers of Lahore Police. Shame on PM Imran’s government.
Hashim Raza on Dec 20, 2020:
Crime and security situation in Lahore is getting bad every day. Police needs to focus on street crime and crime against property . Police has to improve its performance as reportedly there is no political interference now. PM Imran Khan is standing firmly behind CCPO Lahore. No more excuses for such poor showing by Lahore police. Patience is running out for Lahories !!

I dont think this city is safe anymore. Too many murders happening for it to be a coincidence.
Asif Nisar Gondal on Dec 05, 2020:
The situation on ground is really alarming. The CCPO Umer Sheikh is the worst officer that has headed Lahore police. How come such a person has reached this position. He needs mental treatment immediately. There is phenomenal rise in crime in Lahore in last few months. Corruption is rampant and you cannot get anything done without greasing the palms of police officials. No proper forum to complain in Lahore Police. Heard that police leadership of Lahore is busy infighting and in conspiracies against each other. My close friends have personally suffered at the hands of Lahore Police last month and nothing response so far. Where is PM Imran Khan’s good governance ? He needs to wake up from his deep slumber!
Mian Majid Ali on Nov 14, 2020:
The crime situation on ground lis very bad. There is phenomenal rise in crime in Lahore in last few weeks. Corruption is rampant and you cannot get anything done without greasing the palms of policemen. No proper forum to complain in Lahore Police. I have personally suffered at the hands of Lahore Police. Time is running out fast for PM Imran government !
Raja Fazal Rehman on Nov 14, 2020:
Police needs to focus on street crime and crime against weaker segments of society like children, women and minorities. Police must improve its performance as there is no political interference now. No more excuses for poor showing by Lahore police. Security and crime situation is getting worse day by day in Lahore. Needs immediate response
Ishaq Husain on Oct 31, 2020:
Very bad situation. Crime is soaring, people are being looted in day light and PM Imran and Wasim Akram Plus are making merry. No place to complain. How such a situation is allowed to continue. Only Allah Almighty can help in such a critical situation.
Hafeez Khan on Oct 31, 2020:
The situation on ground is terrible. The new CCPO Umer Sheikh is the worst thing that has happened to Lahore. It is amazing how such a person has reached this position. He needs medical treatment immediately. Consequently, there is phenomenal rise in crime in Lahore in last few months. Corruption is rampant and you cannot get anything done without greasing the palms of police officials. No proper forum to complain in Lahore Police. Heard that police leadership of Lahore is busy infighting and conspiracies. I have personally suffered at the hands of Lahore Police last month and nothing positive have come out so far. Very bad situation. PM Imran Khan needs total notice of it immediately.

Crime and security situation is going bad every day. Police needs to focus on street crime and crime against weaker segments of society like children, women and minorities. Police has to improve its performance as reportedly there is no political interference now. No more excuses forsuch poor showing by police.
Mansoor Aziz on Jul 04, 2020:
Crime situation is getting worse day by day in Lahore. Police is in disarray in Lahore. Recent transfers of DIGs Operations and Investigation reflect poor state of affairs. Senior police leadership is busy in saving their posts at the cost of citizens' lives. Police must improve its performance as supposedly there is no political interference. No more excuses for poor showing by Lahore police leadership.
re on May 30, 2020:
is it just me or is safety declining rapidly in cities across the globe..?
Abbas Ali Chowhan on May 07, 2020:
The crime and security situation in Lahore is not improving at all. Street crime is on the rise and police is busy in providing protocol to the politicians. New police leadership in Lahore hasn't made any difference, rather they have been let off for the fiasco at PIC in December 2019. My God, four people killed in a cardiac hospital and nothing happens !
Now, the era of extra-judicial killings is back in full swing (la Umer Virk). This is not the "change" that we had voted for. God help this nation and the country, Aameen.

The situation on ground is terrible. There is phenomenal rise in crime in Lahore in last few months. Corruption is rampant and you cannot get anything done without greasing the palms of police officials. No proper forum to complain in Lahore Police. Heard that police leadership of Lahore is busy in renovating their offices and houses with millions of rupees and poor police station staff is getting nothing to run the day to day activities. I have personally suffered at the hands of Lahore Police last month and nothing positive have come out so far. Very bad situation. PM Imran Khan needs total notice of it immediately.
Raheel Ashraf Khawaja on Mar 03, 2020:
The crime and safety situation in Lahore has gone bad to worse recently. CM Punjab, Senior police officers in Lahore and Punjab need to take stock of the situation and take immediate necessary steps to make Lahore police public friendly, responsive and service oriented.Lame excuses won't work now as the PTI government has given free hand to the IGP and other relevant officers. Time to deliver now !
Shahbaz Rana on Feb 23, 2020:
The crime and security situation is not improving at all. Street crime is on the rise and dolphin units are busy in providing protocol to the politicians. PM's new police leadership hasn't made any difference, rather they have not been made accountable for the fiasco at PIC in December.

Qaiser Ali Sheikh on Jan 31, 2020:
The situation on ground looks quite different. There is phenomenal rise in crime in Lahore in last few months. Corruption is rampant and you cannot get anything done without greasing the palms of policemen. No proper forum to complain in Lahore Police. I have personally suffered at the hands of Lahore Police last months. Very bad situation. Needs surgical intervention to salvage some pride. Time is running out fast for PTI government !
Abdul Majid Hashmi on Jan 29, 2020:
The crime and security situation is getting worse day by day. The Punjab police has los its drive and commitment to eradicate crime and provide security to the common man. The newly appointed CCPO and his team needs to wake up from its deep slumber and take necessary steps to make Lahore police a professional organisation which is public friendly and service oriented. Time to overcome the effects of PIC fiasco, sooner the better.
Arshad Latif Khawaja on Jan 20, 2020:
Four murders during robberies in Lahore in last two weeks ! Where is the safe city cameras, dolphin force, police response units etc. Lahore needs to wake up and improve performance as there is extreme surge in crime in Lahore. Tens of millions are being looted everyday from the poor citizens. Can't keep blaming the previous government and it now 18 months that PTI is in power. Time to wake up and deliver otherwise nature will take its own course and some better people will take over !
Anonymous on Jan 17, 2020:
Situation getting worse day by day. Alarming rise in criminality recently. Police need to focus on treatment with under custody in police and other law enforcement agencies. Need to demilitarise the law enforcement agencies and leading role be given to the civilian agencies with strong civilian over-sight. Long way to go still.
Saadia Jamshed on Jan 17, 2020:
Lahore police leadership needs to pull up its socks and improve performance as there is extreme surge in crime in Lahore. There are four dacoities with murder in last two weeks. Millions are being looted everyday. No excuse what so ever for dismal performance. Can't keep blaming the previous government and it now 18 months that PTI is in power. Time to wake up and deliver otherwise move aside.
Manzoor Ahmed on Jan 06, 2020:
The safety and crime situation in Lahore has deteriorated recently. Even PM's nephew in Zaman Park and senior journalist Imtiaz Alam have been robbed. Senior police officers in Punjab need to take stock of the situation and take necessary steps to make Lahore police a professional organisation which is public friendly and service oriented.Lame excuses won't work now as the time is passing very quickly. Need to stand up an be counted.
Shahid Karim Mirza on Jan 03, 2020:
Lahore police needs to improve its professional conduct keeping in view its dismal performance during lawyers' attack at the PIC. No excuse what so ever for inaction on their part. Hope the enquiry committee by IGP doesn't put things under the carpet as the victims in PIC were poor patients with no political clout like PAT in Model Town incident !!!! Real test of IK government for rule of law and equality before law claims !
Qasim Rahim Khan on Dec 21, 2019:
The situation in Lahore has deteriorated recently. The role of Lahore Police during lawyers' attack at the PIC is shameful to say the least. Their plea of low police morale on account of model town issue doesn't hold ground as five years have passed since that incident and lot of water has flown under the bridges. The newly appointed IGP Punjab needs to wake up from his deep slumber and take necessary steps to make Lahore police a professional organisation which is public friendly and service oriented.
Uzair Ali Khan on Nov 30, 2019:
We need to give credit to the leadership of Lahore Police too for making best use of available resources. Need to appreciate the Lahore police and celebrate the good news with our countrymen and the well wishers abroad.
Ahsan Kayani on Nov 27, 2019:
Credit goes to Shabaz Sharif government, not to IK. Present CM of Punjab does not have such capacity. Shabaz Sharif established Safe City Project with the state of the art surveillance policing, latest technology based forensics laboratory (only few counties have such and only in South Asia) and improvement in policing. For your information, UAE also took help from Lahore Safe City Project to introduce in his system
Syed Khalid Hasan on Nov 24, 2019:
Good news. However, still a long way to go as there is lotto interference in police working by the politicians and bureaucrats in Punjab. Need to depoliticise the police as well as the judiciary. However, one can see there is a visible improvement in crime and security situation in Lahore. Need to focus more now. keeping in view the upcoming challenges.
Rafia Hamid Khan on Nov 22, 2019:
Nice to know that Lahore is getting better. Need to highlight through media and our diplomatic missions abroad to change the perception about Pakistan in the international community. Well done IK, we are proud of your efforts.
Nazir Ahned Qureshi on Nov 21, 2019:
What a pleasant surprise to hear that Lahore is better in safety and security than number of developed countries. Time to share good news and rejoice.
Noreen Ijaz on Nov 19, 2019:
Wow ! Good to see that Lahore crime and security situation is better than so many developed cities of Europe and USA. This is what an honest and dedicated leadership can deliver. Well done Imran Khan, you make us proud with your commitment and hardwork. Keep it up and stay blessed.
Hassan Zaheer Khan on Nov 14, 2019:
Need to work on police culture. Change behaviours in police department. Must depoliticise police at all cost as well as judiciary. Good work Lahore police.
Mohammed Iqbal on Nov 14, 2019:
Need to depoliticise the police as well as the judiciary. Still a very long way to go as there is lot of political and bureaucratic interference in police working in Punjab. However , one can see some visible improvement in crime and security situation in Lahore. Need to focus on changing the the behaviour of police and other law enforcement agencies who are there to protect the public not to humiliate them !
Ijaz Cheema on Nov 11, 2019:
Crime has gone down but police needs to work on their conduct and behaviour. Police's good work go unnoticed and remain under reported on account of one bad incident involving police officials. Need to depoliticise the police as it is heard that SHOs are changed frequently on flimsy grounds. Hope is still on with the PTI government ! Lets hope for the best in coming months !
Anonymous on Nov 07, 2019:
Crime situation has improved to some extent. However, still a long way to go. Need to build the capacity of police and depoliticise it if results are to be meaningful.
Taniya Rehman on Nov 03, 2019:
Pleasant surprise to see the results. Looks like Imran Khan’s government is working well. There is definitely some good improvement in the crime situation Masha Allah. Well done IK. Keep it up by the grace of God Almighty.
Sherzadey Ahmed on Nov 01, 2019:
There is still a long way to go as there is lot interference in police working by the politicians and bureaucrats in Punjab. Need to depoliticise the police as well as the judiciary. However, one can see there is a visible improvement in crime and security situation in Lahore. Need to remain focused more now.
Qadir Hussain Warriach on Oct 28, 2019:
Having lived in Lahore for last 23 years I have seen lot improvement in security and safety in Lahore in last year and a half. However, there is a need to focus on changing the the behaviour of police and other law enforcement agencies. The government agencies are there to protect the people not to humiliate them ! Point to ponder.
Anonymous on Oct 28, 2019:
The crime perception and sense of security has improved but police behaviour needs lot of improvement. Extra-judicial killings have stopped over the year but police conduct with citizens needs lot work. Lahore police must employ psychologists and stress counselling services to improve this aspect.
Rehman Ali on Oct 26, 2019:
Nice to see things improving in Lahore. Keep it up.
Naeem Akhtar on Oct 21, 2019:
The security and safety has improved to a great extent in Lahore in last one year. The recent visit of Sri Lankan cricket team, prince and princess of Cambridge, Head of English Cricket Board, Head of Ireland Cricket Board, number of other high profile dignitaries and peaceful holding of sensitive events like muharram etc is a clear testimony to such improvement. Keep it up Imran Khan, we are with you !
imran on Oct 12, 2019:
Crime is still very bad here. Not safe enough for me. Defo not safe for women either.
Syed Zaheer Shah on Sep 14, 2019:
Living in Lahore for last 29 years I have witnessed lot of improvement in security and safety in Lahore in last one year. However, need to focus on treatment with under custody in police and other law enforcement agencies. Need to demilitarise the law enforcement agencies and leading role be given to the civilian agencies with strong civilian over-sight.
Qaiser Warriach on Aug 08, 2019:
Pleasantly surprised to see improvements in Lahore crime situation. This is what a sincere and honest leadership can do !
Keep it up Imran Khan, nation is behind you.
Laeeq Sikander on Jul 21, 2019:
There is a visible difference in crime and security situation in Lahore. However, still a long way to as there is still lot interference in police working by the political and bureaucratic structures in Punjab. Need to depoliticise the police as the judiciary. Good beginning at least.
Shahjhan Khan on Jul 20, 2019:
Crime situation has improved under new government. However, still a long way to go. Keep it up.
Karim Dar on Jul 19, 2019:
Looks like IK government is working seriously. There is visible improvement in the crime situation Masha Allah. Well done IK. Keep it up by the grace of Allah.
Gohar Aziz on Jul 16, 2019:
Good to know that crime situation has improved. Need remain focused on social crimes like gambling and prostitution which remains the root cause for other more heinous crimes.
Rameez Faroaqi on Jul 10, 2019:
Good to hear that crime situation has improved. Hpwever, needs to be continuously on the toes. Police should be encouraged to get hold of land mafias and narcotics dealers. Corruption in police must be eliminated otherwise no tangible improvement is likely to occur.
Sohail Mehmood on Jul 09, 2019:
Security and safety has improved since new government in place. Reportedly, political interference has decreased in police which had resulted in better policing in the city. Still a long way to go !
Tahir Jamil on Jun 18, 2018:
Pain ray torture, excessive gang stalking & electronic harassment is present in some areas of Lahore like at Chaman park.
news.6aweb.com on Apr 18, 2018:
Sadly, there is heed worldwide. I have been facing hidden electronic weapons torture crime in Lahore for more than ten years.
