The administration was finalizing a plan to install 4,000 CCTV cameras under Rawalpindi Safe City Project on the roads to monitor all the city areas, according to official.
In order to monitor the city’s areas, the Rawalpindi Safe City Project has identified over 950 locations for the installation of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.
A Commissioner’s Office spokesman stated that the administration was putting the finishing touches on a plan to instal 4,000 CCTV cameras on the roads as part of the Rawalpindi Safe City Project to monitor every area of the city.
He mentioned that Saqib Manan, the commissioner for Rawalpindi, had stated that the project would help reduce crime and strengthen the city’s law and order situation while reviewing the project’s progress.
He said the Punjab government had chosen to enter into an agreement with the Safe City Authority to install CCTV cameras in the city and keep a close eye on criminal activity in Rawalpindi.
Along with helping the police and the local government manage traffic signals, the project’s cameras would operate as part of an integrated system that would also aid in vehicle surveillance and tracking. Additionally, the project would be crucial in ensuring security at significant public events. He claimed that contemporary technology is used throughout the world to uphold law and order in major cities, control traffic, and operate other public facilities, and that Rawalpindi would also use this system.
According to the spokesperson, the City Police Office would establish a control and command centre that would oversee quick emergency and police responses, including intelligent traffic management, dispatch of police units, Rescue 1122 response, criminal identification, and virtual surveillance.
The Safe City Project is a public safety initiative that aims to improve the safety and security of urban areas through the use of technology. There are many different components to a Safe City Project, but common elements include the use of surveillance cameras, license plate recognition systems, and other sensors to monitor and detect potential threats.
Other components might include emergency response systems, crime mapping and analysis tools, and community engagement programs. The goal of a Safe City Project is to create a safer and more secure environment for citizens and to reduce the incidence of crime and other safety concerns in urban areas.
