Another cutting-edge element, namely electronic wristbands for chronic criminals, would be introduced as part of the provincial Inspector General of Police’s (IGP) ongoing effort to modernize the Sindh police in terms of high-tech procedures.
The Sindh cabinet has already given its approval to the proposal, and the law would be submitted during the ensuing session of the provincial legislature.
Officials claim that IGP Memon has created legislation to tag repeat offenders with electronic wristbands, which is another daring measure.
The suggested measure was sent to Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, who discussed it with his advisory group and unanimously approved of the idea. As a result, it is now anticipated that the bill will be tabled at the subsequent provincial assembly session.
The new proposal for law calls for the electronic tagging of anyone who are accused of robbing or stealing from others, attempting to kill someone, snatching or lifting cars or motorcycles, or using or trafficking drugs.
Officials added that the new law will allow police to track habitual criminals’ whereabouts with the approval of the relevant court by having them wear electronic bracelets. For the initial phase, it is anticipated that the Sindh police will purchase more than 5,000 of these bracelets.
Before this the Sindh Police develop an app to track down stolen and lost mobile devices. He said that mobile market groups and the police were working together on the scheme.
Furthermore, it is now simple to distinguish between law-abiding residents and criminals thanks to the recent release of Talash app devices. According to the former IG of Sindh, Syed Kaleem Imam, police work today would be impossible without contemporary technology.
The IG Sindh stated that Sindh Police was taking steps to segregate the investigation process totally and to give officers and staff members working in the investigation department up-to-date, high-quality training. A committee has also been established, according to him, to offer official recommendations in this respect.
