Sindh Police Can Now Trace Calls Using New 4G Call Locators

Sindh Police have acquired multi-million rupee 4G mobile phone call locator systems. The Sindh police will now be able to trace calls.

The call or phone tracing and call bugging were previously limited to intelligence agencies only. Now, with the acquisition of this expensive new system, Sindh Police and the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) will have the technology at their disposal.

The new call locator systems are 4G enabled

The system will be operated by the trained CTD officials as they are more likely to deal with heinous crimes. Other departments will also be able to contact the CTD to get the info when required.

The enforcers will be able to log private data with pinpoint accuracy which is most important against terrorist activities, robberies, kidnappings, blackmailings etc.

A police source said,

“In fact, the Sindh police have acquired two 4G mobile phone call locators, which have been handed over to the CTD for use in the entire province. The police have been using the technology for more than two years but the latest one is a modern [gadget] to trace smartphone communications.”

The Sindh police had already acquired two sets of similar system which were handed over to the Special Branch. However, those were only limited to 2G and 3G technology and now that nearly all mobile operators offer 4G services, it was imperative that the systems be updated.

The Sindh Police can now locate phones with pinpoint accuracy

Sindh Police wanted to acquire the technology back in 2010, but the idea was shelved due to opposition from high ranking individuals. The police will no longer be able to excuse by citing the lack of modern technology in most cases.

According to the sources, these systems have been locally designed and developed. The technology has been tested for tracing criminals and kidnappers in interior Sindh.

Let’s hope Sindh Police uses this technology positively and no misuse occurs resulting in any violation of private data. Enabling Police technologically is a good step by the Sindh Police following the advancements by the KPK Police during the past few years.

  • Sindh Police : They didn’t understand URDU language in CNIC.
    Jab Ye Phochne K Liye Pakarty hai “I was provided them to CNIC & they said where is your name mentioned ???'”
    Even Rangers they all not know what is the diffrences between Linces Card & Police ID Card
    Ranger Ne Roka i provided them LTV license they said “Sir Ap Pehly Bata Dete K Ap Police Main Hai Hum Mangtay He Nahi” I said Sir this is LTV License not Police ID Card

    ALLAH Malik k Andriod Ka to :

  • “trace smartphone communication” if that means VOIP and messenger apps then that is a breakthrough because with end-to-end encryption and VPN proxies, even the security experts worldwide are struggling and we should export this local marvel.

  • NO network in Pakistan puts through your call on 4G (yet). You phone is always shifted to 3G or 2G when a call is placed or received. Spending millions and not understanding the technology first.
    But that is none of my concern.
