KARACHI: Additional Inspector General (AIG) Javed Alam Odho has urged businessmen and industrialists to set up CCTV cameras across the city and help the police in fighting crime.

The Karachi police visited the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) at the invitation of Zubair Motiwala, Javed Jaskani, Younis Memon, Majeed Memon, and other businessmen to discuss the law and order situation and rising street crimes in the city. Senior officers of Karachi Police, DIG West, DIG Traffic, and others were also invited.

Karachi police chief urged businessmen to help the police by installing more CCTV cameras to reduce street crimes in the city as it helps identify the suspects much easier. He said the number of command and control centres should be increased which will include full support of the police.

The police chief admitted that street crime in Karachi was worse in the first week of September but soon declined due to the tireless efforts of the police.

“The crime rate has been reduced to a considerable extent. Kidnapping, child snatching, and theft of motorcycles has reduced considerably. Karachi is the lowest-ranking city in terms of murder cases. Target killing is negligible. The police have improved the situation in Karachi by sacrificing their lives,” he claimed.

The Karachi Police Chief requested the media not to spread hysteria and publicize the good works of the police. “Do not spread old videos or viral videos of other countries without verification. It creates fear and panic in the public. Share only data based on verified facts,” he added.

He said the police was using existing resources to provide security and control crime. He said the trust of the public and the business community is necessary for the success of the police.

He said that the Safe City Project is indispensable for Karachi. He informed that at least 6,000 CCTV cameras will be installed within a year and a modern data centre will also be established. He admitted that the incidents of mobile snatching have increased 18 percent during the last eight months.

He mentioned that if the Safe City project’s funding is slashed due to the floods in Sindh, then the business community must come forward and cooperate. He urges the businessmen to increase the command and control capacity of their monitoring centres to curb crime.

KCCI office bearers assured full cooperation and offered suggestions for further improvement in the police reforms.
