Islamabad (HRNW) Body cameras and special tablets have been given to the Islamabad police.
Initially, only 10 cops have been given the devices. These personnel have been posted at five different pickets across the city.
The police will reportedly procure more cameras and tablets soon.
The cameras will help record conversations between citizens and officials, while the tablets will allow them to check people’s criminal records using their CNIC numbers.
Islamabad IG Muhammad Aamir Zulfiqar Khan met Interior Minister Ijaz Shah and briefed him about the use of the body cameras.
On January 17, the Karachi traffic police also announced that they have decided to buy 500 body cameras for on-duty traffic police personnel to monitor their behaviour with the public.
