Government to install RM50mil surveillance system

In a bid to curb crime, the government is planning to install 480 closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. These cameras would monitor public areas such as pedestrian walkways and parks.

These cameras to be installed by year’s end are intended to fight crime in dense urban areas such as Bukit Bintang, George Town, Ipoh and Seremban. The entire system including personnel and surveillance centres to monitor the CCTV footage would cost about RM50mil.

It would be manned by personnel from the ministry, police and local municipal councils.

The private sector is urged to intensify efforts to install CCTVs in their indoor areas, while the Government would put up cameras outdoors.
