Sindh police chief Ghulam Nabi Memon on Wednesday chaired a review meeting on the Sindh Smart Surveillance System (S-4) during which he ordered that the personnel deployed under the S-4 system should be trained on highway protocols.

In this meeting held at the Central Police Office, a representative of the DG IT and NRTC covered details about the installation, importance, utility and functionality of the system. The RRF DIG briefed the participants about the procedure for the recovery of stolen and snatched vehicles through police deployment.

IGP Memon said the S-4 project would play a key role in establishing peace and preventing crime. This project will not only reduce crime but also strengthen the police’s grip on criminal elements, he said, adding that the digital intervention in the Sindh Police will cause difficulties to the criminals and the fear of arrest before committing the crime will prevail over them at all times.

Memon said that under the S-4 system, regular training measures should be taken for the personnel deployed at all the entry and exit routes and toll plazas of Sindh regarding the protocol of highways, while the use of bulletproof jackets should be made mandatory during duty by setting up SOPs related to the duties of the deployed personnel.

He said cash prizes and certificates of appreciation should be given for the best performance. In addition to “Talaash” app devices, vehicles and necessary equipment should also be provided to the deployed personnel so that the elements involved in crime can be brought to book using modern equipment.

The DIG IT informed the meeting that training of staff deployed for the S-4 project has been completed. In addition to providing modern equipment, cameras have also been made available. The DIG RRF said RRF personnel have been deployed for the S-4 project while steps will be taken to deploy 300 more in the near future. Besides, he has also visited the Karachi-Sukkur S-4 project.

The SSP AVLC said AVLC staff are also serving on the S-4 project. The meeting was also attended by the DIGs of Headquarters Sindh, Establishment Sindh and Traffic Karachi.

Meanwhile, on getting directives from IGP Ghulam Nabi Memon, Additional IG Operations Sindh Khadim Hussain Rind has issued a formal notification waiving the fines and punishments imposed on 597 personnel serving in the SPU (CPEC). He took this step in view of the recent visit of SPU and the CPEC personnel on the occasion of Ardali Room.

He said Eidul Azha is approaching and on such an occasion the imposition of fines on the officials for only minor mistakes and recovery of money in this regard is not worthy of departmental values in any way.
