islamabad - Islamabad police revised their patrolling as well as security plans for the next 15 days after mapping timings of crime incidents in various locations of the city.

All superintendents of police (SPs) have been directed by Senior Superintendent of Police Najeeb-ur-Rehman Bugvi to ensure implementation on the patrolling and security plans, a police source said on Tuesday.

He said that research or mapping of the timing of crime incidents had been conducted last week following directions of the newly-appointed SSP and effective steps were being taken to curb the crime.

The SSP, he said, also directed for erecting mobile police pickets or halting points in various areas of the city and maintaining high vigilance and effective checking. Different halting points and pickets would be created to keep an eye over suspicious persons and vehicles to curb the crime and criminal activities, he added.

More than 44 vehicles have already been provided to these checking teams and their mobile pickets would work in different timings in the city and their locations would be changed after every 45 minutes.

All exit and entry points of Islamabad will be also cordoned off randomly along with other places at different venues and times. In order to prevent street crime within the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT), the source said that Islamabad police had adopted proactive policy and hoped success through its effective plans.
