Govt Launches Tech Based Safe-City Project to Make the Capital Crime Free
Safe City Project is a technology-based surveillance system that will guarantee security of inhabitants.
With the induction of 1,800 security cameras athwart the federal capital, the Interior Minister asserted to have disbursed a huge amount on the project until now.
The cameras are to overseer substantial buildings, entry and exit polls, roads, marketing centers and an important part of the city’s residential places, with its adjuration and restraint center in a bombproof building at H-11.
While paying close heed to police reforms, Nisar informed that:
“This project will be a failure if the deployed police do not perform their duties properly.”
Speaking at the launch of the Project Nisar revealed that this is exact vigilance, where each and every edge of Islamabad can be viewed on the camera.
He also said that:
“These cameras are not mere digital equipment but they may also be used as weapons. These will also help detect vehicle theft, robberies and other crimes.”
He further added that after a month’s supervision, the sum of checkpoints in the federal capital will also be abridged.
For the time being the provincial government has endorsed a total amount of Rs. 3 crore to turn Quetta and Gwadar into safe cities as well which needs an irreducible amount of Rs. 10 crore.
Such initiatives will make it easy to make the country crime free and the citizens will be able to live a fear free life and carry on with their tasks.
