Peshawar Safe City Project KP Govt Allocated Rs500ml

Peshawar: The KP government has once again allocated a handsome amount of Rs500 million for the execution of the long-lasting Peshawar Safe City Project. Under the Safe city Project, more than 6000 Closed-circuit television cameras would be installed at more than 850 points in various locations of the provincial metropolis. All the points would be monitored live by the senior officers as well as through the centralized monitoring system. The idea is to improve the law and order situation in the city. The safe city projects were announced initially for Islamabad Lahore and Peshawar many years ago.

 The projects have been executed in Lahore and Islamabad but the Peshawar Safe City Project could not get the attention of the concerned authorities and remained pending for the last 13 years. This project costs millions of rupees to the govt every year but nothing is being done practically. an official concerned said that the CCTV cameras would play a vital role in maintaining the law and order situation in Peshawar city. He said, “CCTV cameras and technology help prevent crimes and keep an eye on suspicious elements besides monitoring the behavior of the cops,”

Earlier the concerned authorities had a plan to start phase-1 of the project from Hayatabad before its execution in the other areas but the program remained stuck between the various government departments. The poor handling of various governments resulted in an inordinate delay of the project despite of the fact that the employees of the Safe City project are drawing their salaries for many years. It is relevant to mention here that the Punjab government has also decided to launch the project in other cities as well after it completion in Lahore. In this regard, a special safe city Authority was set up in Punjab in 2015. But in Peshawer despite several meetings under the CM, no practical work on the ground could be seen.
