UNDP Pakistan’ has established a Command and Control Centre for Gilgit Baltistan Police to connect digitally in Gilgit.
Inspector General of Police Gilgit Baltistan, Mr. Saeed Khan Wazir, and UNDP Pakistan Resident Representative Mr. Knut Ostby inaugurated the newly established Command and Control Centre today.
The north of Pakistan suffers from internet connectivity issues due to the desolate terrain. The pandemic has also increased the need to connect virtually to work efficiently.
Operational now with relevant equipment including cameras, sound systems, screens and licensed Zoom accounts, the Command and Control Centre will enable the Gilgit Baltistan Police to conduct conferences and meetings virtually—within Gilgit Baltistan and with officials in other provinces as well.
The centre, established through UNDP’s Amn-o-Insaf programme, will also help the capacity building of police officials to use digital platforms and thus save time and reduce costs significantly.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Inspector General of Police Gilgit Baltistan, Mr. Saeed Khan Wazir thanked UNDP for extending its support.
