How to check criminal record?

This application is launched by Punjab Police and Punjab Safe Cities Authority. Now you can check the criminal record of anyone from your mobile phone. You can check records without visiting the police station. 

This application was launched in 2021. This application was launched in the era of CCPO Lahore Zulfiqar Hameed. The launching ceremony was held at the CCPO office. Different officers of the Punjab Police attended the launching ceremony of this application.

The main purpose of this application is to check the criminal record of someone. This application helps in the following processes.

  • Verification of employees
  • Matters of marriages
  • Matters of businesses

This is a good initiative by Punjab Police and Punjab Safe Cities Authority. Someone can easily access the criminal record by accessing this application. We can also check whether the person has FIR or not. But CNIC is compulsory for checking the criminal record of someone. 

If someone has FIR or any other guilty then his record will be displayed on the screen. Otherwise, no criminal record message will be displayed on the screen.

The result provided by this application is only Lahore based. 

Checking of a criminal record by CNIC:

Checking someone’s criminal record in Pakistan is not as simple as it sounds. There is no central database that contains all the criminal records in the country. Instead, each province has its own system for keeping track of criminals. This means that if you want to check someone’s criminal record, you will need to know which province they are from. 

Once you have this information, you can try searching the provincial government website or contacting the local police department. However, Keep in mind that it may be difficult to get accurate information this way. The best way to check someone’s criminal record in Pakistan is to hire a private investigator. A professional investigator will have access to resources that you may not be able to find on your own. They can also use their experience and knowledge to find out information that you might not be able to get on your own. If you need to check someone’s criminal record in Pakistan, hiring a private investigator is the best way to go.
