Tourist Police Department in Azad Kashmir
For the convenience, safety, and best experience of the tourists, the government of Azad Jammu and Kashmir has initiated a new department of police - Tourist Police - a force to help the travelers and tourists. AJK PM Raja Farooq Haider Khan has officially inaugurated the project in Mirpur.
The steps have been taken after dozens of misbehavior and poor cooperation complaints against the Kashmir Police by the travelers.
The police force can be identified by the green shirts and khaki trousers with department name, Tourist Police, written over the shirts. Faster bikes and better training in their particular field have been provided to the force. The main goal of this initiative is to promote tourism in the territory by establishing guaranteed security for the tourists in the region.
