Ufone has initiated a distinctive CSR project for helping Islamabad Police in curbing crime.
A Police Mobile Verification System allows police to verify the registration details of vehicles, stolen vehicles record and criminal record using Ufone connections at the spot and without any cost. The Police Mobile Verification System has seen a 100% monthly growth since its inception in September, 2013, as more and more Police departments across the country have started using it.
The total inquiries done through this service in March alone are more than 240,000.
This Police Mobile Verification System starting from Islamabad has now been implemented by National Highways and Motorway Police, Police in all districts of KPK, AJ&K along with several districts of Punjab including Attock, Bhawalpur, Chakwal, Jhelum, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Sargodha.
The implementation of this process across the country can help to curb crime and terrorist activities since vehicles act as major facilitator in all sort of criminal and terrorist activities.
The service should also be able to decrease the overall crime rate on the streets.
Mr. Amir Pasha, Head of PR & CSR, Ufone speaking about the initiative said, “This CSR initiative by Ufone has been largely successful and will further help mitigate crime rate across the country.We fully understand the vulnerable environment we live in and on our behalf, we want to do all we can to help the authorities of this countryto fight crime. This is only the beginning and we wish to not only consolidate our support but also extend it with the same zeal and social responsibility. Our ultimate motive is to make Pakistan a safe country.”
Sultan AzamTaimuri, Additional IG Operations, ICT Police said, “This initiative of Ufone is turning out to be a national service helping police department to shrink crime rate thus making Pakistan a safer place.”
According to latest stats of March 2014, 191,290 registration details of vehicles were inquired from excise data, whereas 47,694 vehicles were inquired from stolen record.
Additionally, more than 500 vehicles were charged with the help of this verification system. Inquiry of 805 CNICs was made from criminal record.
Through this initiative, Ufone hopes to bring down the rate of crime in the country by a considerable margin.
