The Sindh Threat Assessment Committee met on Tuesday to plan a significant security shift in the province.
The committee, chaired by Sindh’s interim home minister, Haris Nawaz, decided to shift extra police officers deployed for VIP security and protocol to a thorough operation against criminals.
Sindh Threat Assessment Committee Major Goal
Moreover, the major goal of the committee was to examine the existing security challenges faced by significant individuals and venues throughout Sindh.
Following their analysis, they reached an agreement to limit the excessive security deployments associated with VIPs.
Additionally, divisional threat assessment committees, led by different commissioners, have been charged with reassessing and suggesting security measures for people under threat.
However, one of the most important topics covered at the conference was the initiation of a “grand” operation to combat street criminals, drug traffickers, illegal immigrants, and smugglers operating in the province.
The authorities stressed the importance of removing criminal elements within two months.
