This website is about the GOAN Christian Community of Pakistan. Every Goan has ancestral roots in Goa, India, formerly a Portuguese colony. All Goans of Pakistan are predominantly Catholic. Although the 'Christian Community of Pakistan' has contributed immensely to nation-building; this endeavor is solely dedicated to researching, highlighting and archiving the GOAN community's historical background, cultural heritage, significant achievements and contribution to Pakistan, before and after independence.

Police Force

The Police Service of Pakistan had several Goans who served the force with great distinction - in administration, crime and traffic. These men were of staunch character, honest in their dealings and worked diligently beyond their call of duty. Their services were lauded by the government, aptly decorated and continued to serve the force until retirement.

The Police force included Cyril de Souza (PPM), SP who was also Principal of the Police Training School, Shadadpur and commanded great respect among his colleagues, having trained many police officers of high repute and integrity. Cyril Almeida, SP-Traffic (he was one of the most respected and well-known police officers of his time. The Karachi Traffic Police built a special Police Kiosk called 'Almeida Chowk' on the main Shahrah-e-Faisal (Drigh Road), opposite the Cemetery) to honor their colleague.

Then we also had Hubert D'Cruz SP (Sanghar), Eric Mendonca SP, Walter Rodrigues, Tony Rodrigues, Anthony Franco, Ronald de Souza, Martin D'Souza, William Monteiro and Eddie Martyres (who at the request of the Pakistan government, wrote "The History of the Hurs"). John Cyril Falcao was a DSP-CID.

There are no Goans in Pakistan's Police force anymore.
