ISLAMABAD: Islamabad police have introduced a parking solution developed on the QR code technology.
The technology named Park Secure will now be securing all the public parking areas, said an Islamabad police statement.
Park Secure issues a digitally created QR coupon using a mobile phone and will be tagged with the vehicle information upon entry of any vehicle in public parking areas.
At the time of exit, citizens will be required to get the same QR code verified by the police officer who will scan the issued QR code using his mobile phone and will allow the car to exit after matching the credentials. This system has multiple advantages beyond being an important step towards reducing the car theft from Public Parking areas. Police officials will be getting live statistics of cars entered, exited and currently parked at any given area. This will enable them sharing these statistics with the relevant authorities for better planning and management at their end as well. It is an extremely swift and efficient process as well which will add in to the convinience for public.
This system, developed with the help of JS Bank, has been launched today at Islamabad Sunday Bazar and will be replicated in other areas soon as well.
Speaking about this new initiative IG Islamabad Sultan Azam Temuri said: “safety of public and their property is of utmost importance for us and we are trying day and night to ensure the same. We are sure it will benefit the public at large. We are committed to introduce digital policing in Islamabad and like many others there are still many of these technology based initiatives are yet to be launched.”
Speaking about the system JS Bank Branchless Banking & Digital Implementation Country Head Noman Azhar said: Park Secure is a revolutionary initiative taken by Islamabad police and will be of good for both public and administration."
