Additional Inspector General (AIG) of Pakistani Police, Helena Iqbal Saeed, has been appointed as the first-ever Pakistani woman to UN Police Commissioner’s slot in Khartoum, Sudan.
It is notable that she also has the honor of becoming the first AIG from Quetta, Balochistan, for this rank. She is also the first person to reach flag rank in the history of the Police Service of Pakistan.
Helena is also the highest-rank female officer of the Police Service of Pakistan.
Helena Belongs to a Minority Group in Pakistan
Often minorities in the country are unable to climb the ladder to success due to several biases. However, Helena belonging to Christian background didn’t let any such obstacles bring her down or her ambition, as a matter of fact.
As soon as the news was out of her latest accomplishment, Pakistanis all across the world poured in their congratulations on social media platforms for her being appointed as a top cop in Khartoum.

Breaking Stereotypes by Joining the Police Force
Saeed broke the stereotype a long time ago by joining the Police force and climbing the stepping stool of progress consistently. She joined the Police force as soon as she passed her CCS 23rd CTP as ASP.
She was the most taught lady to join the administration while working as the main colleague administrator of police (ASP). She was also filling in as the Extra Overseer General at the Exceptional Branch, Islamabad, before turning into the Delegate Investigator General.
Once during a press conference, she told the media: “Police officers must be recruited, assessed, and advanced on their own legitimacy and not as tokens to fulfill the public authority’s measurable necessities or political requirements. Acknowledgment of ladies’ function in policing is critical to convince them to perform better and urge more ladies to join the police to accomplish a gender balance”.
