Earlier this year, the capital police department started using a new security mechanism to ensure the safety of its citizens whilst removing the hindrances caused by the regular checkposts. The “Smart Stop & Search” mechanism, as it was termed, allows law enforcers to use smart patrol cars to monitor different zones.

According to the new mechanism, the police have established snap checking points in each zone of Islamabad which will be a mobile checkpoint. Furthermore, the checkpoint will be changed after every two hours. Each mobile checking point will include 4 male constables and 1 female constable to ensure the safety of the citizens.
