Punjab Home Department to Install 4500 AI-Powered Cameras in Jails for Enhanced Security

LAHORE: The Punjab Home Department has announced plans to install approximately 4,500 advanced AI-powered cameras across 43 jails in the province. This initiative was decided during a Reforms Committee meeting led by Punjab Home Department Chief Secretary Noor-Ul-Amin Mengal.

The meeting, attended by IG Prisons Punjab Mian Farooq Nazir, the Additional Secretary Prisons, and other senior officials, emphasized the need for comprehensive surveillance in various high-security zones within the jails. These zones include offices, prisoners’ barracks, security walls, jammers areas, kitchens, hospitals, libraries, and all routes within the prison facilities.

The modern surveillance system will employ artificial intelligence technology in cameras to monitor movements and activities within the jails more effectively. This implementation aims to enhance the security infrastructure and ensure better control over the prison environment.

Additionally, control rooms will be established within the jails, as well as in the offices of the Inspector General Prisons and the Home Department. These control rooms will facilitate real-time monitoring and swift response to any incidents, thereby significantly improving the management and security of prison facilities.

This move is part of broader efforts to reform the prison system in Punjab, leveraging advanced technology to address security challenges and improve overall administration. The initiative reflects the Punjab Home Department’s commitment to modernizing prison infrastructure and ensuring the safety and security of both inmates and prison staff.

The decision to incorporate AI-powered cameras is expected to bring a transformative change to the security dynamics of Punjab’s prison system. By enabling real-time data analysis and automated alerts for unusual activities, AI technology will not only enhance the efficiency of monitoring but also aid in the prevention of potential security breaches and misconduct.

This modernization effort underscores the Punjab Home Department’s dedication to leveraging technology for improved governance and public safety, setting a precedent for other regions to follow. The successful implementation of this project could serve as a model for nationwide prison reforms in the future.
