Davao to install CCTVs at checkpoints

by Carina L. Cayon

DAVAO CITY, Jan. 04 (PIA)-- The city government here is pushing through its plan of installing closed-circuit television cameras (CCTVs) at three checkpoint sites in the city.

Davao City Public Safety Command Center (PSCC) chief Magno G. Adalin Jr. confirmed to the local media here the putting up of more CCTVs in the city to strengthen its security measures.

Adalin said the wireless security and surveillance cameras will be positioned at the checkpoint sites in Sirawan, Toril; Ilang, Tibungco; and Lacson, Calinan.

He said the city government has already allocated a P10 million budget for the project.

He added that one system provider has already submitted its concept proposal to the local government unit.

“It’s just a matter of implementation,” Adalin stated.

The PSCC chief also disclosed the intention of installing more CCTVs in key areas in the city such as at the City Hall, Sanguniang Panglungsod, People’s Park, Rizal Park and Sta. Ana Wharf.

The city government has already put in place CCTVs in 16 major intersections in the city as part of the Traffic Signalization System aimed to address traffic concerns and reduce traffic accidents.

Adalin said the system helped the apprehensions of around 13,000 drivers who were caught violating traffic regulations last year.

He said most of the violations involved cases on obstruction, illegal parking and swerving.

He noted though that there was a decline in the number of traffic violators in 2011, saying that drivers have become more disciplined.

“Even without the traffic enforcers, drivers have learned to follow the traffic rules,” he said, adding that authorities recently recorded an average of 30 violators per day.

In April last year, the Traffic Management Center reported that around 70 to 100 traffic violators were monitored everyday because of the presence of CCTVs. (PIA-11/Carina L. Cayon)
