Performance of Rapid Response Force in Pakistan: A Case Study of Madadgar-15 Karachi

Mustafa Hyder


This study seeks to explore the issues that hinder the performance of rapid response force of Pakistan especially in Karachi. In the late 90s, the higher authority of police launched a rapid response service that has been given different names in the past, but now is known as Madadgar-15 (M-15). The research is carried out using questionnaires, office visits and interviews through random sampling and site visits using convenience sampling. Results showed that the three key agents; the government, the higher officials of Madagar-15 and the people are responsible for the performance, which should work together to achieve its real objectives and rebuild the image of Police. This study is intended to identify key indicators affecting the performance of rapid response force in Karachi. The study will highlight the police’s perceptions uncovering factors that affect public support for community policing.
