The Karachi Safe City project is part of a security initiative to increase safety by controlling crime and monitoring traffic.
The project comprises a range of highly integrated Safe City systems, focused around a large-scale CCTV installation that will transform police operations and provide a new working structure in the city.
Governor Sindh Imran Ismail said this while addressing the concluding session of Safe City Conference at a local hotel on Sunday, said that the effective digital systems are required to maintain a secure city environment for the community.
“The overall objectives of the project is to achieve more effective public safety incident tracking and response, reduce traffic violations and improve behaviours; and overall better transparency and automation in police operations”, he added.
He said the project should have been started much earlier as Karachi is one of the largest city of the country and contributes more than 70% of the revenue in the government exchequer.
The conference was told that the project comprised a range of highly integrated Safe City systems, focused around a large-scale CCTV installation that would transform police operations and provide a new working structure in the city.
It was also informed that as many as 10,000 CCTV cameras would be installed in the city in three phases under the project.
