Introduction

National Police Bureau is the premier institution for steering the police reform effort in the country. We have the legal responsibility to act as the Secretariat of the National Public Safety commission, the highest body meant for accountability of police through society’s representation. We are the secretariat of the National Police Management Board, a body comprising senior police leadership, which provides leadership in professional police matters. We are the think tank for ideas on police and prison reforms and we act as the focal point for reform coordination.
The National Police Bureau is mandated to act as think tank on most criminal justice related matters and be the generator of policy initiatives on police reforms. The bureau also acts as the repository of knowledge about police professional standards, thereby helping the Ministry of Interior improve the quality of policing in Pakistan and take evidence-based decisions.
