A rendezvous at PSCA Qurban Lines today concluded in appraisal work of a “State Authority Project” to get into its stride in current week. The MOU was signed by Chief Operating Officer PSCA Akbar Nasir Khan and Board Member Center for Economic Research Pakistan Dr. Ali Cheema in the presence of Professor HKS Dr. Asim Khawaja, Research Manager HKS Ms. Fay Terrett and Research Fellow Ms. Julia Ledics. State Authority Project will analyze framework and symmetry of complaints received at Emergency Helpline 15 and Police Responses to redress and resolve the same. The Harvard Research Team will be based at PSCA and will directly probe the citizens for their opinions and feedback on the emergency responses provided by the much awed integrated Policing mechanism of the authority.

The Harvard Kennedy School and Center for Economic Research Pakistan teams were later taken to various arms and functions of the IC3 for first-hand insight. The project was lauded profusely with mentions of PSCA achievements by the visitors. This research will give a boost to the collective output of Law Enforcement Organizations, said an excited HKS Team.
