In the tribal area of Kurram in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, Samreen Amir has created history by becoming the first woman from the Christian community to be selected as a Station House Officer (SHO).
Samreen, a 35-year-old SHO at the Parachinar Police Station, has made a substantial contribution to the police department’s diversity and women’s empowerment. Her promotion honors her earlier professional accomplishments, which include organizing raids and actively taking part in police drills in the tribal district.
With this historic appointment, women who attend police stations to report problems with inheritance, domestic violence, and other difficulties experienced by women in the area should feel more secure.
Akhtar Hayat Khan, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Inspector General of Police, stressed that the department’s dedication to gender equality and women’s empowerment is demonstrated by the selection of a woman as a SHO.
A female deputy muharrir is currently working in a police station, further advancing inclusivity and diversity in the legal profession.
