Special Investigations Unit Commandant, Dr. Farrukh Ali Lanjhar, expressed hope that the new force will help reduce, possibly eradicate street crimes in the city. Apprising local news outlets of the new development, he added,

Foot patrolling is an extremely tedious job. Roller skates will give an edge to chase and apprehend [suspects].

He suggested that the team consists of 20 weapon-yielding men and women who have been extensively trained. All personnel and stationed officials have been notified, and roller skates will soon become a frequent tool for apprehending criminals in the city.

  • This news must be a joke! Has the police chief recently watched some kids movie where kid in roller skates goes as fast as cars? Have you even seen the “narrow streets” where “standard police vehicle cannot access”? Why not take a demo and broadcast it on TV channels to show its effectiveness before making decision?

    • They mentioned, it is for foot patrolling though. Skating is better than walking and plus if they have announced this, they must have kept in mind its feasibility and must have only chosen routes where skating in possible
