Pakistan’s Police Commander to be Police Adviser to UN Department of Peace Operations

Inspector General of Police Faisal Shahkar has been selected as Police Adviser to the United Nation Department of Peace Operations by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, becoming the first officer from Pakistan to have this prestigious position. The two-year assignment is extendable for another term of the same length.

IGP Shahkar has a nine-year experience of working at the UN Headquarters and had also performed various field duties in Liberia and Bosnia-Herzegovina under the UN Mission.

He has served in the Police Service of Pakistan for more than thirty years.

As his training course commander in 1989, I congratulate him and wish him the very best.
