Rawalpindi Safe City Project will be Initiated From January
Rawalpindi: The Caretaker Government of Punjab will install 350 surveillance cameras in Rawalpindi to ensure safety and security. The work on the project will be started in January and is expected to be completed in one year. The project will cost approx. 10 billion pkr.
According to the details, the CCTV cameras in Rawalpindi will be linked to the City Police Officer’s office control room. The CCTVs will be placed at sensitive and busy locations like railway stations, masajids, bazaars, entry and exit points of police stations, courts, prisons, and important bridges.
The Punjab Information Technology Board will be responsible for the installation of cameras. The project was approved in a cabinet meeting to enforce traffic rules and regulations effectively. The city’s commissioner, Liaquat Ali Chattha, said that these cameras would be helpful to manage law and order during occasions and events like religious possessions, cricket tournaments, etc. Hence, it will save money in the long run.
It is pertinent to note that similar projects are operational and effectively working in Islamabad and Lahore. After the completion of the project in Rawalpindi, the project will be launched in Murree and other cities of Pakistan.
