The city took the lead after satellite-based global positioning system (GPS) started functioning regularly from Sunday airing signal to police functionaries that they are being watched by their superiors. With Rescue 15 Centre at Qasim Bagh as its headquarters, the system gets information from the satellite about the whereabouts of a vehicle fitted with a satellite censor and shows it on the monitor screen as a blinking cursor on the map. Initially the satellite censors have been fitted with four police patrolling vehicles whose movement was first checked through wireless and then was confirmed through the system during the demonstration. The number of vehicles under monitoring would increase up to 25 within a month.
