The Karachi traffic police have decided to buy 500 body cameras for on-duty traffic police personnel to monitor their behaviour with the public.

The purchase will be funded by 15% of the money collected from traffic tickets.

These cameras will be linked to control rooms via online connections and are expected to be purchased within three months.

Another 210 cameras will be bought from the police budget for police who conduct snap checking in the city.

All the devices will be purchased for approximately Rs110 million.

The decision was made in meeting of a board responsible for the purchase of equipment for the city police department. It functions under Karachi AIG Ghulam Nabi Memon.

The Karachi police chief believes that it will help improve the conduct of policemen, as well as the public.

This story earlier incorrectly mentioned that there were 710 cameras being purchased for the traffic police. Follow SAMAA English on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
