All community parks of Punjab have been dedicated to families to ensure their security. According to a Rawalpindi Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) spokesperson, Punjab Advisor to the Chief Minister Asif Mehmood has directed the authorities concerned to make proper security arrangements at parks to ensure their safety.
She said that the advisor has further directed the authorities concerned to provide all possible facilities to the citizens in the parks. She said that the adviser, after attending a briefing on the ongoing projects across the province, instructed the authorities to install CCTV cameras, particularly at all major parks of the province besides completing the repair work of the faulty cameras as soon as possible to ensure the security of the visitors.
The authorities were also instructed to hire the services of security companies for the parks besides setting up a central control room to monitor security arrangements.
All PHAs of Punjab were asked to organise appropriate arrangements for the training of the guards so that the security of the citizens could be ensured at parks, she maintained.
