KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah inaugurated Sindh Smart Surveillance System (S4) project aimed at providing comprehensive and integrated municipal security solution for all major entry and exit points connecting other cities in Sindh province.

Inauguration ceremony of S4 was held at Chief Police Office. Ministers Saeed Ghani and Zulfiqar Shah, PSCM Agha Wasif, provincial secretaries, senior officers of Pakistan Rangers and members of civil society attended.

System will enable effective monitoring of entry and exit points, ensuring reliable security through integration of advanced technologies such as facial and number plate recognition at 40 toll plazas, including 18 in Karachi. Project also aims to enhance security responses and seamlessly integrate with existing Command and Control Centre at CPO Karachi.

CM Shah mentioned that S4 project aimed to facilitate arrest of over 80,000 absconding criminals and reduce vehicular crime. "System is designed to have capabilities for crime prevention and deterrence." He stated that system would assist police in identifying suspects and criminals, locating stolen vehicles and conducting surveillance and investigations.

This will enhance public safety and improve traffic management, and overall efficiency. Additionally, it will help police in analysing crime patterns. CM said he approved Rs 1.567 billion in 2022-23 to procure ANPR Camera System by direct contract with NRTC.

Just after inauguration, CM visited Command and Control Centre where he was given detailed briefing by Inspector General of Police. Chief Minister announced that 127,482 police employees and jawans are now covered by comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme, with total outlay of Rs 4.9 billion.

Under scheme, each family will have basic hospitalisation limit of Rs 1 million and room limit of Rs 10,000. Additionally, major medical extension pool of Rs 1 billion has been established to be used in case initial IPD limit is exhausted.

Insurance plan covers pre-hospitalisation charges (30 days before admission), post-hospitalisation charges (30 days after discharge), normal and C-Section delivery charges and includes spouses, sons/ daughters and parents as dependents. Earlier, Home Minister Ziaul Hassan Lanjar thanked chief minister for providing funds for installation of S4 system.
