LAHORE: The capital city police have launched an android mobile phone application ‘Welfare Eye’ to facilitate the families of the policemen who laid down their lives in the line of duty in getting their benefits.
Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Amin Wains inaugurated the application at his office on Monday. DIG (Operations) Dr Haider Ashraf, DIG (Investigations) Chaudhry Sultan, DIG (Security) Mr Moen, SSP Admin Rana Ayyaz Saleem and families of the martyred policemen were present on the occasion.
The CCPO said there were 281 martyrs of Lahore police and the mobile application was launched to communicate with their families to solve their problems.
He said the application was designed after complaints that the families of the martyred policemen were facing difficulties in getting benefit from different welfare projects announced for them.
SSP Rana Ayyaz Saleem told Dawn that the welfare policy covered three categories of policemen — those who lost their life in the line of duty, died in service and invalidate (retirement on medical grounds).
He said the families of all the martyred policemen would be registered through the mobile phone application and their profiles continuously updated from finance, welfare and establishment branch. The data was available at the computerised command and control room at the CCPO office.
He said any family registered with the system could send an SMS to the number 0301531515 in case of facing any problem in getting the welfare package.
