Who doesn’t want to have a safe and secure living and peaceful atmosphere around themselves? Quite obviously the answer to this pertinent question is a big yes as there can be no other reply to this. Realising this dire need of the citizens of the big cities of the province, the Punjab Government has done well to launch somewhat unique Safe City Projects for big cities which aim at providing crime-free peaceful atmosphere for the citizens .

According to the reports, Provincial Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif presided over a meeting which reviewed progress on the Safe Cities project and expressed satisfaction over the pace of work on the Safe City Project of Lahore saying the initiative will be model in quality and transparency.

The chief minister quite emphatically said that the use of the latest technology is the need of the hour to further improve law and order situation and that the provincial government has been vigorously promoting this in the public sector.

Needless to mention the provincial government attaches great importance to protection and safeguarding life and property of the people and in view of this is fully benefiting from modern technologies which is an important need of the hour. For providing peaceful and safe atmosphere and effectively checking and controlling crime, the unique Safe City Projects are also being in the process of being launched in other major cities of the province as well in phased manner.

Use of modern technologies to ensure safe and secure cities and curbing crime in major cities of the province is quite commendable pro-people work of the provincial government .
