The local police will station three of its commandos outside Musharraf's farmhouse in the outskirts of Islamabad.
While the intelligence agencies have been less forthcoming about their contributions to security for the former military dictator, their officers are reported to be "performing their duties" around Musharraf's home, reports The Dawn.
The SP City will be responsible for providing security personnel during Musharraf's movements in Islamabad, coordinating with the former president's staff as needed.
The increase in security for Musharraf has been felt throughout the capital. Police have begun more stringent checking procedures at Islamabad's entry and exit points, and various other Islamabad locations have been identified for greater thoroughness.
Inspector General of Police Bani Amin Khan has ordered that additional police forces be deployed at 'sensitive locations' and important buildings, some of them plainclothes officers charged with 'remaining vigilant against suspicious elements'.
Other officers, armed with sophisticated weapons, have been stationed on strategic rooftops. Individual police stations have formed special police teams to patrol their jurisdictions more frequently.
The IGP said they will provide additional logistical support and manpower to all police stations. He added that the police have also organised a Quick Response Force, which is to remain ready in the event of any 'untoward situation'.
