A study trip to North Police Station, Lahore Cantt was organized by the Sociology Department on 01 April 2019. Students enrolled in SOCL 220: Introduction to Criminology class went to visit the Police Station under the supervision of Assistant Professor, Mrs Shamaila Athar and Assistant Professor, Mr Athar Azeem from the Department of Sociology.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Mr. Ishtiaq Khan Nawani assisted the students in the understanding of the process of registration of complaint. We are thankful to him for his support during the visit. The students interacted with the police staff over there and also asked questions from the criminals who were on remand in the lockup. This visit helped them in understanding the police system.
