The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police has taken another initiative to combat crimes and maintain peace in its jurisdiction.
With the help from modern technological tools, the KPK Police will be maintaining a computerized database of all the nabbed criminals in its custody, making use of up-to-date data to maintain order and peace in society.
Under the plan, the Peshawar police has digitized data for up to 981 criminals during the current year. These outlaws were set free after completing their jail terms.
The KPK police have started maintaining the record of criminals involved in heinous crimes and those languishing in jails to check their movement even after release.
The Mardan police completed computerization of data of 219 criminals, Charsadda 194, Nowshera 242, Swabi 135, Buner 80, Lower Dir 424, Chitral 32, Abbottabad 120, Haripur 123, Mansehra 107, Battagram 2, Kohat, 144, Karak 58, Bannu 224, Lakki Marwat 23 and Dera Ismail Khan 122.
Hopefully, this data collection drive will help the law enforcement authorities keep tabs on criminals, especially repeat offenders. It will also result in better information sharing between the various official agencies.
