Crime control can solely and unequivocally be accredited to deterrence; deterrence is fundamentally created by justly and timely prosecution, prosecution depends on comprehensive and correct investigation, and investigation is subject to correct and timely apprehension, based on intelligent assessment and carefully made plans. Contrary to highlight demands, SECURITY & VIGILANCE Directorate has no domain to conduct or even partially influence said three pillars or stages i.e. apprehension, investigation and prosecution, which only if professionally done, can lead to successful crime control. The only factor where SECURITY & VIGILANCE can contribute is prevention, which is done by patrolling and with whatever possible assistance can be rendered to LEAs, within legal frame work. DHA is cognizant of the crime factor and endeavor to provide a platform for a joint mechanism involving Police and rangers to do whatever possible for crime con.

SECURITY & VIGILANCE is not responsible for municipal functions; however, in order to facilitate residents SECURITY & VIGILANCE registers the complaints received through own monitoring staff or as complaints from residents and promptly relays it to concerned agency i.e. CBC, KE, SSGC etc. In case of non-address, the complaints are pursued but at times, the responsible agency has some technical issues forcing delays.

Anti-encroachment ops are regularly conducted but owing to the absence of strong deterring factor for violators, it keeps coming back despite warning and confiscation.

In order to conform to legal demand, SECURITY & VIGILANCE Dte endeavors to ensure presence of magistrate at demolish site. Through CBC, who has the availability of magistrate for only 4x days in a month; out of which the magistrate is made available for a day or two (at best) to DHA. This enforces delay in execution of demolish orders.

Firstly, apprehension may not be a right word to be used here, as it is an exclusive domain of LEAs only. Secondly SECURITY & VIGILANCE Dte does two things i.e. confiscation of the bicycles / motorcycles used by these garbage / rag pickers and handing over of these boys to Police. The problem confronted by police is that gradually every Afghani boy is being found in possession of valid CNIC. Nevertheless, whatever possible, is being done by S&V Dte to discourage them e.g. as per new policy, confiscated items are not being returned before 4 - 6 months.

Enforcement of DHA bye-laws is one of the two primary roles of SECURITY & VIGILANCE Directorate; whereas, general area security of DHA / residents is an obvious the responsibility of Sindh Police.

While living abroad if you wish to authorize any individual here in Karachi you should simply adopt a procedure through which any individual can collect your Information Letter and Membership Form. Write an application along with your signature, attach copies of CNIC of both (self, to whom you are authorizing), get the application and CNICs attested through the Embassy of Pakistan and post it back to the authorized individual, who would be able to collect documents on your behalf from DHA Head Office Karachi.

Firing in a densely populated city like Karachi, can be seriously double edged. The risk factor does not permit asking a non-governmental body to fire; as it can have serious legal complications. Nevertheless, SECURITY & VIGILANCE in coordination with Rangers / Police, patrols the areas, because whether fire or no fire, presence of SECURITY & VIGILANCE still deters criminals; to at least wait for any patrolling vehicles (whether Police, Rangers or SECURITY & VIGILANCE) to leave before the crime is committed.

SECURITY & VIGILANCE is principally a Directorate raised and structured to ensure implementation / compliance of DHA bye-laws and to provide security to DHA assets. However, over a period of time, the scope of duties has enhanced to entire DHA. The intent and drive behind highlighted enhancement is hard to conclude; either DHA had to step out of mandate, owing to the receding role by concerned agencies or SECURITY & VIGILANCE’s self-assumed proactive role made others agencies to retreat, in order to focus more on areas other than DHA. Whatever be the case, SECURITY & VIGILANCE recognizably works more and well beyond the call of duty.

SECURITY & VIGILANCE is principally a Directorate raised and structured to ensure implementation / compliance of DHA bye-laws and to provide security to DHA assets.

Whatever be the case, SECURITY & VIGILANCE recognizably works more and well beyond the call of duty.

SECURITY & VIGILANCE has no authority of detention; hence despite a will for stern action, the action as per legal dictate has to be restricted to a more facilitation i.e. collecting beggars and handling them over to police and if police shows inability to detain, the beggars are dropped off outside DHA; needless to say how fruitful that can be. The real issue here is that as long as these professional beggars continue receiving charity, they not only would keep coming back but will keep increasing as well.

As concluded from the accident data, main factors causing traffic accidents are over speeding, under influence driving and jumping traffic signals. It needs no emphasis that if heavy tickets are issued in all above referred violations, the consequent deterrence will help reducing number of accidents saving invaluable human lives. On said account SECURITY & VIGILANCE is persistently pushing the case with traffic police Karachi for strict enforcement i.e. road checks and heavy challans.

Issue of Prostitutes and Transgender is a sensitive and demands requisite legal authority and expertise to handle the scene; which needless to say is held with Police only.
