PSCA HAS IMPROVED THE SECURITY PROFILE OF PAKISTAN: FOREIGN DIPLOMATS
PUNJAB HAS LEFT BEHIND MANY INTERNATIONAL SECURITY OUTFITS BY COMPLETING SUCH NATIONAL SECURITY PROJECTS IN A SHORT TIME: DIPLOMATS
A Foreign Service Academy Islamabad delegation of under-training diplomats from 15 friendly states paid an academic visit to Punjab Safe Cities Authority. The 25-member delegation had in it young diplomats from countries such as Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kenya, Tajikistan, Maldives, Algeria, Antigua and Barbuda, Guatemala, Iraq, Liberia, Nepal, Papa New Guinea, Samoa, Sri Lanka and Sudan.
At PSCA, Chief Administrative Officer Muhammad Kamran Khan received and briefed the delegation about the project.
The participants were demonstrated real-time application of technologies such as Facial Recognition, Number Plate Recognition, Traffic Management and E-Challaning en-route to the project’s various sections namely the Emergency Control Center and the Operations & Monitoring Center. The diplomats praised the success of the project and termed it an achievement, by Punjab province that has left behind many international security outfits in comparison. This is indeed an improved security profile of Pakistan, said the participants of the informative tour. Punjab Police has both ability and will to achieve such a hi-tech transition, they added.
At this moment, the CAO apprised the delegation about the project being unique in a sense that it employed largest number of youths so far than any comparable project anywhere in the world. We also have a moderately capable Media Monitoring Center which also keeps an eye on Pakistani cyberspace – records and reports trends and sentiments, he added. The visit was concluded with the presentation of souvenir shield to the delegation from the PSCA’s end.
