Punjab Safe Cities Authority helps police beat crimes

Published: September 9, 2018


LAHORE: Punjab Safe Cities Authority’s (PSCA) Integrated Command, Control and Communication Centre (IC3) claimed to have served e-data requests by Punjab Police and other law enforcement agencies. The requests were related to five cases of heinous crime and investigations in August.

PSCA shortcomings brought to the fore

Kasur’s Operations Monitoring Centre (OMC) secured more than 1,422 observations that warranted the interception of more than 308 suspicious persons and screening of 255 vehicles by Mohafiz Force. At least 61 such vehicles were detained pending further investigations, whereas three FIRs were registered accordingly. The OMC employs the state-of-the-art CCTV surveillance operations through the geo-strategic grid of cameras within the city.

On violations of traffic laws and felonies of wrong parking, 293 tickets were issued in August. Furthermore, in coordination with TMA and Punjab Police, PSCA Kasur managed to foil 131 bids of illegal land occupation.
