Entering the world of information technology, the Sindh police have announced the launch of the Talaash app that can help the police, especially the investigation department, catch criminals involved in heinous crimes and the absconders.
The media briefing started with DIG Chandio announcing that Talaash is a super app for the Sindh police. It was developed keeping in view the field requirements to quickly help find information from huge data banks in a fast and efficient way.
He said the app is being introduced in Karachi in the first phase. But soon its scope will be extended to other districts of the province. The aim of the app is to combat street crime, as checking at the time of blockade will ensure identification. The app can also be tracked by GPS and it includes the data of the entire province.
The data of 1.5 million criminals will be available in this app. Police employment records in the app will also help catch potentially fake employees. Dead bodies will be identified by fingerprints. Fake number plates and fake licences can also be checked. Accused persons out on bail can also be traced with the help of the app.
