PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Wednesday unveiled a dedicated web portal for citizens to know about the performance of all tiers of the government through the use of information technology.

Mr Atiq said that the new system would help in effective service delivery to citizens, promote accountability and transparency in government functioning, support better governance through e-governance and ensure a culture of quantified performance management for government employees.


Officials say step to lead to greater transparency in govt affairs


He said that the system was aimed at making information about the work of government functionaries accessible to public.

Traffic warden police equipped with body mounted cameras

PESHAWAR: The newly established Traffic Warden Police, Peshawar has taken another leap towards modernization by equipping its personnel with the body mounted cameras.

These cameras are equipped with both voice and video recording, says a police spokesman in a statement here on Wednesday.

The traffic staff has been directed to switch on the camera each time he proceeds to stop a vehicle for imposing fine. All the proceedings from stopping a vehicle till issuing a fine ticket to the driver would be recorded in real time in the camera memory.

In this techno-savvy age of the smart phones where almost anyone can record live events in real time, the question of imposing illegal fine and misbehavior on the part of on-duty traffic police staff has come under intense scrutiny.

Since the camera is an unbiased witness, it will provide substantial evidence of the sequence and happenings of the incident which would in turn help the supervisory officers as well as the courts to unearth the truth, establish true facts and make decisions on merit.

Secondly, these cameras would have a deterrent effect on the public as well as the traffic staff by holding both of them accountable. These cameras would help in neutralizing the defiant attitudes of the public
and criminal orientations of suspects. Further, the dread of being caught red-handed would have a remedial effect on the behavior and demeanor of the traffic staff.

Therefore, it is anticipated that the cumulative effect of these body-worn cameras would lead to a drastic drop in complaints of misbehavior, seeking gratification and imposing illegal fine.

This is another initiative of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police which is in line with the best international practices. The law enforcement agencies of almost all the countries of the developed world are equipped with body mounted cameras. The KP police is the first police force in Pakistan to take this initiative.

This project will be implemented in three phases. In the first phase the traffic police of Peshawar has been provided these body-worn cameras.

In the second and third phases the traffic police of remaining districts and the local police respectively would be equipped with the modern cameras. – APP
