The presence of CCTVs in crowded or sensitive areas will also increase public confidence and deter miscreants, he said.
“In cases of vehicle thefts or cheating of people in public or even contract killings it is difficult to establish identities of suspects. CCTVs will be useful in linking an accused person to a crime scene and bringing him to book,” an official said.
A state of the art video monitoring center will be built at the office of the police commissioner to maintain a real time vigil in parts of the city on the lines of the Traffic Management Centre. The project is under technical evaluation and the police department will call for tenders for the installation of the CCTV cameras.
