The police are considered the most important of the law enforcement agencies because when a citizen has a problem related to crime, he first looks to the police for a solution.
Police officers working in every city of the country, including Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, and Islamabad, work against criminals to protect the lives and property of citizens and arrest and bring them to justice.
Such officials repeatedly arrest criminals and detain them in police stations, who are later released on bail. When they are released, the lives of most police officers are in danger.
Released criminals sometimes attack the police, but armed police officers know how to deal with such attacks. However, there is no record of how many policemen were killed by criminals.
The most dangerous terrorist attack is considered a suicide attack. A terrorist commits suicide by planting a bomb on his body and targeting a police officer or any other important person.
In the 18 years since 2002, there have been at least 450 suicide attacks on police officers, with at least 3,700 martyred.
Over the past 14 years, more than 7,000 Pakistanis have been martyred in suicide attacks, while more than 14,270 have been injured.

It should be noted that the police personnel has no personal enmity with the criminals but they come forward only for the protection of the people and sacrifice their lives while performing their duties.
Today, Police Martyrs’ Day is being observed in every province of Pakistan, keeping in mind that whether the martyrs belong to the police or to the Pakistan Army, the value of every human life is equal in the sight of God Almighty.
According to Islam, the savior of a human being is the one who saves the lives of all humanity and the police personnel is engaged in fulfilling the sacred duty of saving many human lives on a daily basis.
Now is the time to show solidarity with the martyrs because they are the ones who are always there to protect the lives and property of the people.
