In this respect, the Mr. Robert A. Clark, Programme Manager on Anti-Terrorism and Mr. Danial Dy. Programme Manager visited the headquarters of NH&MP, where they have discussed different training programes, which can be imparted to motorway police.

I.G. National Highways & Motorway Police Dr. Wasim Kausar and the members of American team discussed the various training issues to be given to motorway police. They praised the performance of the motorway police and said that the NH&MP has been recognized worldwide and its officers established it as an Institution. Mr. Clark said although the NH&MP is excellent in traffic handling issues but due to the present environment of Pakistan, it is necessary to provide them training to control law & order situation on highways/motorways in the present environment and to combat all type of crime and terrorism, so that they could handle any criminal activity with professionalism. The IGP informed them that the motorway police had provided the training to other such police departments and the people are feeling positive results in some cities. He said that NH&MP has planned to impart training to SAARC countries and in first phase the traffic police of Maldives is due in near future, which would be given training in NH&MP training Institute at Sheikhupura. The IGP directed the AIG training of NH&MP to make training courses in consultation with Mr. Clark for the officers of NH&MP. The American police will train them and later on the officers of NH&MP may be sent US for training.
