A BRIEF HISTORY OF KHYBER PAKHTUNKHWA POLICE
The areas that constitute present Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have witnessed Persian, Greek, Bactrian and Kushan influences. Later on, after the advent of islam, the land of Pashtun came under the rule of the Ghaznavi, the Gohori, the Temuri, the Afghan, the Mughal and the Sikh dynasties. These dynasties maintained various arrangements for watch and ward like Kotwal in cities, Chaukidar in villages, Barkandaz for supervising labour work of convicts and private militia in different Khanates of the that time.
In 1849 the land of the Pashtun was annexed by the British. Initially the British maintained the policing system of the Mughuls and the Sikhs in major part of the Pashtun land, however, to establish durable peace and security Punjab Frontier Force was raised. After War of Independence, a full-fledged policing system was established under Police Act of 1861.Police Act was extended to frontier territory in 1889.
