Punjab Government Initiates Restoration of Thousands of Safe City Cameras

The Punjab government has recently announced its decision to restore and repair more than 2,000 dysfunctional cameras within the Safe City network during the initial week of November. This move comes as part of an extensive upgrade plan for the Lahore Safe City Project, aligned with the vision of Punjab Caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi. The directive was issued following a high-level meeting, emphasizing the need to ensure the operational efficiency of the surveillance system.

The restoration of these cameras is expected to significantly benefit law enforcement agencies, enabling them to promptly address emergencies and effectively deter criminal activities through the utilization of advanced technological solutions. Furthermore, the ongoing efforts also involve the installation of surveillance cameras on various buildings across the city, with plans to extend similar measures to key cities in the province, including Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, and Gujranwala.

A Chinese company has reportedly undertaken the task of repairing the non-operational cameras installed on major roads in Lahore, with a target to fully reinstate approximately 6,500 cameras by August next year. Inspector General Police Punjab Dr. Usman Anwar, along with officials from Huawei and the Chief Operating Officer of Punjab Safe Cities Authority Kamran Khan, discussed the initiative during a recent meeting, highlighting the importance of bolstering the city’s surveillance infrastructure.
