3200 cops to be deployed to ensure foolproof security


Rawalpindi District Police on Thursday finalized a security plan for Christmas under which all churches have been divided into three categories and over 3200 police personnel including Elite Force commandos would be deployed to ensure foolproof security. According to a Police spokesman, no one would be allowed to park vehicles in 100 feet radius of Churches. Walk-through gates would be installed at the entrance of the Churches and the visitors would be checked through metal detectors. Best possible security arrangements would be ensured to avoid any untoward incident in the city, he said. The security duty at public places including parks would be made more effective, he said adding, that security had also been tightened at the entry and exit points of the city and special checking was ordered for this special occasion.

He said, the City Police Officer (CPO) Rawalpindi Syed Shehzad Nadeem Bukhari had directed the SPs, DSPs and SHOs to ensure effective patrolling in their respective areas.
