Shaheen Motorbike Squad has been introduced in Islamabad. The objective of the squad is to prevent street crimes.
The Islamabad Traffic Police—ITP has been working for managing and monitoring the traffic of the city in a better way. Previously this year, they made the announcement that a traffic management system would allow a smoother traffic flow and would prevent the traffic jams throughout the major thoroughfares.
The Islamabad Traffic Police has made the announcement of an e-challan system as well for helping in facilitating the citizens in the city. For assisting in controlling the street crime in the capital city and to instils confidence on the streets.
The Deputy Inspector General of Police (Operations) Islamabad—Waqar Uddin Syed said that a police motorbike squad would be patrolling the city.
DIG Islamabad tweeted about this development on social media account.
The motorbike patrol looks very much like the one implemented in Lahore, which is called the Dolphin Force, under which two police officers on a motorbike patrols the entire city all through the day.
This again is a good initiative taken by ITP. This would ensure the safety of the citizens.
Similar types of initiatives are highly needed in other cities of the country as well, especially in Karachi where the street crimes rate has surged during the past few days.
People feel insecure and safe, and such an initiative would provide some relief and a sense of protection to the citizens.
On the other as per the latest reports, the President House is to remain open for the general public on the 7th of December that is today. People would be allowed to visit the place from 11 am to 2:30 pm, however, they would not be permitted to carry their bags or mobile phones along.
