In an effort to improve labor efficacy in the province, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government has approved a project worth PKR 50 Crore that will deploy contemporary drone technology in policing, agriculture, and mining.
While presiding over a meeting with the Chief Secretary Dr. Shahzad Bangash, the Additional Secretary, the Inspector General of Police, and other administrative secretaries, the Chief Minister of KP, Mahmood Khan gave his approval for this initiative this Wednesday.
The project intends to improve the investigation capacities of police agencies and boost rescue operations in the province. It is also expected to ensure efficient service delivery, and reduce security threats by scanning broad areas at the same time.
Concerning this, CM Khan has directed all the relevant authorities to ensure that the necessary modalities are fulfilled within 15 days.
He also briefed the officials present in the meeting that the project will first be implemented in police agencies and PDMA before being expanded to other sectors like mining and agriculture.
During the discussion, Mahmood Khan also emphasized the significance of implementing drone technology in the PDMA, mining, and agricultural sectors.
He expressed his vision of making Khyber Paktonkhwao the leader in the use of contemporary technology in policing, inspiring other provinces to follow suit.
Drones for KP Police patrolling are expected to cut workloads while also improving job efficiency and production, CM Khan added.
It is also worth noting that, in addition to policing, the drones will also aid in other areas of crisis, such as rescue operations, flood surveillance, and the supply of emergency materials.
