“I salute you all, I am pleased that the first Sword of Honour was awarded to a female police officer. I am proud of all of you. Since I took the oath as chief minister, I have been waiting for this ceremony,” said CM Maryam while addressing the passing-out ceremony.

Maryam said she was pleased to see 530 women participating in the passing-out parade, and she was delighted to see women officers on duty in the police force. She emphasized the importance of wearing the uniform and expressed pride in women serving in the police department.

She said there are 7,000 women police officers in Punjab, and she wanted to increase the number of women in the police force. “Lady police officers are superheroes; they are soft-hearted, so they forgive, but there should be no softness in their hearts for oppressors. They should seek justice for the oppressed and bring the oppressor to justice.”
