The Philippine National Police is seeking to widen coverage of video security systems in all business establishments in the country as a crime deterrent measure.
PNP Chief, “Pulis Nyo Po” Director General Nicanor A Bartolome said the measure is among his proposals DILG Secretary Mar Roxas, that he will present before the National Peace and Order Council (NPOC) when the body convenes on its next regular meeting.
The PNP proposal seeks to replicate and expand local ordinances adopted by some local government units requiring business establishments to install CCTV security systems as a requirement for issuance of business permit.
“This is just a small investment on the part of business operators that will eventually translate to higher returns as losses due to crime are diminished,” Bartolome said.
“After all, it makes better business sense toinvest on security than take the risk,” the Chief PNP said.
Bartolome said he will convince the NPOC to adopt the measure for nationwide implementation by all LGUs in the country.
For his part, PNP Spokesman, Chief Supt. Generoso R Cerbo Jr. said CCTV security systems amplify the certainty of arrest and punishment of criminal offenders, thus, increasing its crime deterrent effect.
Most key cities in the country have already adopted the measure requiring business establishments to install CCTV security systems as a requisite for issuance of business license and permit to operate.
These LGUs have in fact, experienced improved peace and order situations upon adoption of the measure, Cerbo noted. (PNP-PIO)
