The ‘Kasur safe city project’ is nearing its completion with over 95% work completed, announced Punjab Safe Cities Authority, according to media sources.
Under the project, sensitive and crime-riddled areas were identified and 450 CCTV cameras were installed in those locations, said the authority.
To make the process smoother, Kasur can be observed remotely from Lahore after the authority, using fiber optic cable, connected the integrated command, control and communication (IC3) center in Kasur with Lahore.
This is a noteworthy development as Punjab government has started on this after seven-year-old Zainab’s rape-murder case came to light, showing that the rise in child abuse cases in Kasur has been noted by the authorities.
Punjab Inspector General of police, earlier in January, had said that 7 new safe city projects would be started in Bahawalpur, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Kasur, Multan, Rawalpindi, and Sargodha after the formation of Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA) in Lahore.
