Punjab has retained the provisions of the Police Order 2002 subject to a few amendments though the Amendment Act 2013. The amendments have provided for recruitment of educated investigators and better qualified SIs as potential SHOs; improved supervision and unity of command in investigations; locally convenient and efficient change in investigations; incentivized merit based fast track promotions for Constables, Head Constables and Assistant Sub Inspectors and allowed the posting of qualified Sub Inspector as SHOs to provide more suitable options to the City/District Police Officers for posting SHOs. The Supreme Court, however, shall decide the fate of the deletion of Article 184 of Police Order 1 2002.
