17th December: Balochistan’s first female cop, Pari Gul Tareen establishes a special desk to encourage women to report abuse. She has fought against all odds in her province and finally, last month, she was designated as assistant superintendent of police in Quetta.
Pari has fought all her life for education, and later her place in the police force. She knows better what women need in her region and she is giving them exactly that: a female front desk at the Bijli Police Station in Quetta. Her goal was to stand up for the rights of women and she has started her journey by taking this first step.
25th November: On Tuesday, for the first time, a woman police officer, Pari Gul Tareen has been appointed in the Balochistan’s police force as an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI). The female officer hails from Balochistan’s Pishin district. Tareen passed her Central Superior Services (CSS) exam and later joined the Police Service of Pakistan (PSP) and has been posted in the Quetta Cantt area. Back in 2015, she earned her Master’s degree in English Literature from the National University of Modern Languages (NUML)
Pari Gul Tareen is the first woman in the history of Balochistan to be appointed to this post.
In an interview with Punjab Safe Cities Authority, Tareen expressed how the police uniform motivated her to protect and serve the country.
“46th common PSP (ASP) lady police Officer from Balochistan ASP Pari Gul Tareen. She passed CSS exam and joined PSP group as a first choice to become a Police officer. ASP Pari Gul is the first lady from Balochistan to come in Police department as a PSP officer”
Tareen dedicates her victory to her husband, who has encouraged her to give the exams and later her career.
A local media site says:
“She dedicated all her success to her husband who supported her to prepare for her CSS exams.”
Twitter congratulates Pari Gul Tareen on her latest achievement.
