The Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA), established under the Punjab Safe Cities Ordinance 2015, will ensure establishment, development and maintenance of an integrated command, control and communication system (PPIC3) for Police in major cities of the province for public safety. The Safe City is a concept for returning security and quality of life to today’s complex cities through the use of technology, infrastructure, personnel and processes. In order to realize the vision of developing safe cities in the province, PPIC3 Centre has been developed for Punjab Police in the city of Lahore, which will be subsequently established in the larger cities of the province. Recently, PSCA has identified 2000 locations for installing more than 10,000 cameras for surveillance through a comprehensive survey. That includes the coverage of public institutions, key infrastructure, public roads, crime hotspots, VVIP routes, entry & exit points and public places.
