PSCA providing ‘crime heat map’ to Lahore Police

LAHORE, Aug 18   -  The Punjab Safe Cities Authority has taken a proactive mea­sure to curb criminal activities by providing a visual representation of crime data, called a ‘crime heat map’ to the Lahore police. This heat map allows police officers to identify areas and times with higher crime rates within each police station’s juris­diction. Additionally, the Safe City initiative is equipping the police with information about crime patterns and the locations of suspects. The crime heat map as­sists law enforcement in better understand­ing crime trends. This knowledge enables them to strategically al­locate resources, such as patrolling and personnel deployment, to effective­ly address the issue.
