The managing director told the gathering that police communication officers deputed in PSCA have limited and controlled access to data. All cameras installed in the city monitor only public places, he added. Mr Ali Amir said that due to specific angles of CCTV cameras, nobody can monitor private/residential areas or private gatherings. All the officials of the Authority are constantly under the supervision of senior police officers. Sensitive cases are supervised directly by senior officers, he added. The chief operating officer said that the authority guides the field force in matter related to prevention of crimes and effective emergency response. Justice (R) Ali Akbar Qureshi expressed his views at the Data Privacy Conference, saying that the authority's steps to secure the data were satisfactory. Legal experts praised the efforts of the Punjab Safe Cities Authority and said that more awareness about privacy needs to be spread at the public level.
