Islamabad Safe City Project to be launched

Islamabad: After long debates and discussions, the Interior Ministry finally decided to launch the multi-billion rupee “Islamabad Safe City Project” on Monday, particularly after the wave of terrorist attacks in the twin cities.
Security cameras and CCTVs will be installed all over the city and other security measures will be taken under the project. Under the security plan, the capital city will have an online security system and the security forces of the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) would also be equipped with modern weapons that would be imported from China. The Planning Commission under Dr Samar Mubarakmand approved the technical proposal for the project. The framework agreement for a soft-term loan for the project was signed between the governments of Pakistan and China in December 2010. A senior official seeking anonymity told this scribe that under this project, some 1,500 security cameras would be installed throughout the federal capital and some would also be installed in Rawalpindi in order to ensure the security of the twin cities.
He added that under this mega project, the security forces, especially the Rapid Response Forces (RRF), would be equipped with stun guns, and strict security measures with the help of modern technology would be taken at all checkpoints and police pickets of the capital. Moreover, he informed that under the Safe City Project, electronic system would be installed at all police stations and check posts, FIR system would be made computerised and the capacity-building of police would be done.
He noted that this plan would equip the police personnel with modern training and equipment. In addition to this, he said that new vehicles would be provided at all police stations of the capital and one vehicle would be at the disposal of each SHO. The $124.7 million project involving the installation of 1,500 security cameras and import of modern weapons from China for the security forces of Islamabad was directly awarded to Huawei Technology after the tendering process was waived by the prime minister.
