The Bangalore city police who have used CCTV cameras to regulate traffic flow in the IT city for the past couple of years will now employ the technology for law and order purposes.
The city police will install CCTV cameras in 18 police station jurisdictions in the central part of the city to exclusively monitor law and order situations. The project will cost Rs 8.5 crores.
“The purpose of these CCTV cameras will be routine monitoring and surveillance. It will pick up suspicious movements or activities that can be later used as evidence,” police commissioner Raghavendra H Auradkar said.
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.
