At least 120 traffic wardens have joined training courses being organized in collaboration with the Punjab information technology board at the Arfa Karim IT Tower. The wardens will be imparted computer education during the weeks-long courses as part of the “paper-less working” project launched by the Lahore police in recent months. Chief Traffic Officer Rai Ejaz Ahmed says that the traffic officers were being facilitated with modern computer technologies. “For paper-less working, computer courses have been launched at Arfa Karim IT Tower with the assistance of Punjab information technology board”.
According to the CTO, initially training would be given to at least 120 wardens . The computer-trained traffic wardens would be appointed as Duty Officers and Ticketing Officers in the future. Similarly, Daily Duty Roasters, Order Books, and traffic arrangement program would be sent online in all offices of the city traffic police department instead of dispatching bundle of papers. Also, challaning or ticketing will be ensured through computer software on a daily basis. Rai Ejaz Ahmad also said that computerized system would not only improve the performance of traffic wardens but also the fine collection data would be saved automatically. –Staff Reporter
