It is the time that Punjab police system should also be made computerized.
- If we will not make an entry into this IT world then we will not be able to give service to the common people. Without IT and computerized checking systems, there will be no accountability. He told the media that though a post an Additional Director IT was made, a branch of computerized checking systems in Qurban Line was setup but nothing beneficial was gained because of these initiatives.
- By far in 210 of the police stations, computerized front desks have been setup. In the remaining 502 police stations, computerized front desks will be set up by 15th Dec 2016. With regard to the funding of this system, each of the police station has been handed over 7 lakh rupees.
