Faryal Fareed, a female police officer, made history in Balochistan as she assumed the role of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) last week. Her appointment marked a significant milestone, as it was the first time in the province’s history that a woman had been entrusted with such a high-ranking position within the police service.
Hailing from Haripur, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Faryal officially assumed her duties as the SSP of Jaffarabad on September 1st. Her arrival was met with a warm welcome from the police personnel at the Jaffarabad district police office. Upon taking charge, SSP Faryal wasted no time and promptly convened a meeting with her subordinate police officers and personnel in the district.
The district where SSP Faryal is now stationed borders the province, and ensuring law and order along the National Highway has consistently presented a formidable challenge.
SSP Faryal received a warm reception, with bouquets and salutes, from the police personnel stationed at the Jaffarabad district police office. Her initial action upon assuming her role was to call for a meeting with the subordinate police officers and constables in the district.

It is worth noting that SSP Faryal had previously made history within the Police Service of Pakistan (PSP) when she became the first female police officer to be awarded the prestigious “Sword of Honour.” This recognition was bestowed upon her in 2018 while serving as an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), in recognition of her outstanding performance during her training at the National Police Academy.
Notably, Faryal’s husband, Dr Sami Malik, is also a part of the police force and has been assigned as the SSP of Naseerabad, coinciding with Faryal’s appointment as the SSP of Jaffarabad.
