Sindh government has decided to launch the Safe City Authority in the province. Following the footsteps of Punjab government, Sindh is launching the Safe City Project.
A committee has been formed on the directives of Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah. It aims to facilitate the closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed in the major cities of Sindh province.
Members from the Information Technology and Interior ministries and police department will be included in the committee.
Murad Ali Shah chaired a meeting at CM office in which he said that the Safe City Project proposal had been echoing ever since he was appointed as the Chief Minister.
He guaranteed that he will complete this project at the earliest. Also, he issued directives to establish the authority under the Chief Secretary’s supervision.
Initially, the project will launch in Karachi and later will be expanded to other cities in Sindh.
Over 10,000 CCTV cameras will be installed in different locations of the metropolitan, under the project.
The committee has been asked to present a feasibility report in a couple of weeks’ time.
