CCPO recommends creation of ordinance requiring establishments to install CCTVs
CEBU CITY, Philippines — Cebu City police will again raise to the Cebu City Council the need to implement an ordinance that will require all establishments to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Wilbert Parilla, deputy director for administration of the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO), expressed that proper installation of CCTVs in establishments, especially those that capture the roads, would be an effective crime deterrence.
So far, Parilla said that there are some establishments here that remain unequipped with security cameras.
“Mao na atong gisige gyud og pursue sa atoang city council to have an ordinance requiring all establishments to have CCTVs not only sa sulod sa ilang establishments but also outside so that it can capture any incident,” Parilla said.
Since police could not cover all areas in the city, Parilla said that this could greatly help them with faster investigation of different incidents.
Parilla cited a recent incident, wherein two men who appeared to be drunk, were captured in a security camera causing alarm by throwing bottles in Barangay Lahug. Parilla said that they continue to work on finding out the identities of the two men as of this posting.
