Erum Mohmand’s entry into the Balochistan Police is a big step for women’s representation in law enforcement in Pakistan. She is the first woman from Mohmand, a tribal district, to join the police force as a sub-inspector.
Her father, SSP Sajid Khan Mohmand, was a police officer who tragically lost his life in a terrorist attack in 2017. Following in his footsteps, Erum is determined to continue his legacy of service.
Inspired by her father’s dedication to duty, Erum pursued a degree from Peshawar University and now wants to play a unique role in community policing.
She sees herself as a torchbearer, defending her country and serving as an inspiration to other women who may want to join law enforcement. Her recruitment is a source of pride for her family and a sign of progress for gender equality in traditionally male-dominated sectors.
Erum’s historic induction into the Balochistan Police encourages other women to consider careers in law enforcement and contributes to a more diverse and inclusive future in the field.
