PNP HOLDS MEETING WITH GOV’T, NGAs ON IMPLEMENTATION OF CCTVs IN METRO MANILA

The PNP through the Directorate for Information and Communications Technology Management headed by Police Director Rodrigo P. De Gracia, held today an Exploratory Meeting at the PNP National Headquarters with various government and non-government agencies on the implementation of the PNP CCTV Project in Metro Manila.

The said project was initiated by the Secretary of the Interior and Local Government (SILG) Mar Roxas II in response to the various crime incidents in the different areas in NCR with priority on the identified crime prone areas to maximize the effectiveness of the OPLAN “Lambat/Sibat” anti-crime initiative.

The PNP conducted the exploratory meeting in order to expedite the implementation of the project, share best practices and technology and to explore the possibility of using other government and non-government’s facility to enhance this project.

The project would closely monitor and record all incidents in crime prone areas for the police to be able to execute immediate police action based on the live feed of the CCTVs and recordings may be used in investigation and prosecution of criminal incidents.

Said CCTVs will have a direct link to the nearest police stations through the use of Internet Protocol radio where police officers could easily track, monitor, or capture all the incidents in the crime prone areas for immediate police action.

This project is the continuation of the initial installation of four (4) CCTVs on each 38 police stations and five (5) District Offices completed last January 20, 2015 under the NCRPO which aims to monitor the services and activities of the police.

The project is expected to be completed by second week of April 2015 for NCR and will be replicated in highly urbanized areas nationwide to complement crime prevention and solution. (PNP-PIO)
