کچھ عرصہ پہلے میں نے تجویز دی تھی کہ ہانگ کانگ کی طرز پر ویڈیو کیمرہ پولیس کی یونیفارم کا حصہ ہونا چاہئے تاکہ پولیس ناکے پرہونیوالی گفتگو رویہ اور کاروائ ریکارڈ کا حصہ بنے مجھے خوشی ہے کہ موٹروے پولیس اور اسلام آباد پولیس اب اس طریقہ کار پر عمدرآمد کیلئے تیار ہے

Islamabad Police’s official handle also confirmed the development:
“Islamabad police have decided to arrange body-worn cameras for personnel deputed at police checkpoints. Footage from these cameras will be connected to the Safe City system.20 cameras have been obtained to check their performance, resolution, and results.”
Fawad had offered the suggestion a few months ago when Punjab police imposed a ban on the use of mobile phones during duty hours.
