KARACHI: The Sindh Police department has appointed a female superintendent as spokesperson for the first time in the history of the provincial law enforcement department.

According to an official notification issued here on Friday, the Inspector-General Sindh Police has appointed SP Erum Awan as its spokesperson.

Awan is expected to hold her first press conference today at 2:00 pm.

In April last year, female sub-inspector Ghazala Syed was elevated to Station House Officer (SHO) for a general police station in Karachi.

A large majority of men are employed in the police department in Pakistan, where women are rarely encouraged to pursue a career in law enforcement.

Women account for less than one percent of total police force in Pakistan, according to data by the National Police Bureau.
