Message of the I.G Prisons

In continuity to our goals of improvement, we have constructed new Central Jail at Marden with all required modern facilities to prisoners, besides we have Automated Prisoner Data by introducing Prison Management Information System in all Khyber Pukhtunkhawa Jails. Our prime focuses in present and new Jails are on security to combat current security threats. In this connection facilities have been provided in all Jails i.e. Equipment’s like Thermal CCTV camera, Cell phone Jammers, X-ray Baggage scanners, Video Conferencing have been installed. We have miles to go in professional excellence. I am sure prison modernization efforts will get a new fillip in 2015. Our approach to integration of correctional services with social groups requires to given a greater thrust in coming year. I look forward to new initiatives from Superintendent of jails and his staff in this regard.
