Karachi, October 25, 2016 (PPI-OT):DHA is a progressive and a leading residential estate of the country which has taken a number of proactive and effective measures to improve and enhance the security in the area. In this regard state-of-the-art electronic cameras have been installed at all exit and entrance points, focal venues and commercial centres in DHA which provide effective electronic surveillance in the area.

DHA Vigilance teams are putting up utmost efforts to transform the residential estate into a secure haven so that residents could move freely and fearlessly in the area. This is in accordance with DHA’s progressive vision to provide a qualitative, secure and safe living environment to its residents.

DHA Vigilance also assists/substantiates the Sindh Police efforts by carrying out patrolling, monitoring and checking of violations of byelaws on daily basis in DHA. The department has 800 CCTV Digital Cameras installed in DHA for early warning/reaction against crime.
