Opinion polls-an unfair way to assess Police performance

Police Force of our country is a sacred organization responsible for our protection and fortification. Police Officers need our support, respect, and appreciation for all that they do for us by putting their lives on-line for us. To evaluate the Police Force’s professionalism, public opinion polls must never be used. Judging this great organization’s performance in this way is an unfair, unjust, and disrespectful practice. Policing is not a part of an entertainment business and it is never a contestant in a popularity contest. It is an exceptionally serious and distinguished segment of our society.

About samina iqbal

I am a free lance writer who loves to write on social issues in particular. I am a house wife and my husband Dr. Shams Iqbal offers all the support and encouragement so that I can pursue my passion for authorship and other cause which is dear to me. My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity. I am so inspired and fascinated to support this law enforcement group. On the other hand I like music, movies specially classics, I am a fashion geek, English and American literature are my passions.

    Nor should police performance be judged by their crime-fighting prowess,only by their competent response to the problems of crime and disorder they are expected to handle in a lawful manner.

    I wish at least half the Police community in every unit anywhere have the “protective” nature that we all so sincerely eulogise. And a good quarter part more are willing the exercise everything in their power to enforce the law. Sadly, very frequently these days, the nature of the criminals they deal with daily also rubs off on them; and the rest acquiesce in the name of “department honour.”

    But you, Samina, are exceptional ! Your generosity is of the order of the most noble amongst us.


    • Thank you so much for the comment and I do appreciate the input. I am very touched by your compliment for me. What can I say, it has moved me very much. I do believe in goodness and I think you will agree with me that goodness begets goodness. My mission is tough I know but I am getting good support. It is a beginning and a positive one I think. Thank you once again. Stay tuned. God bless you.
