The City Police have planned to enhance security within its jurisdiction by linking surveillance cameras installed at various places with the modern police control room for round-the-clock monitoring.

The technology-aided security mechanism that is to be put in place soon is aimed at curbing crimes, regulating vehicular movements and maintaining order within the city limits.

Under Phase -I of the security-related surveillance mechanism, steps have been taken to link 300 surveillance cameras installed at important thoroughfares and traffic junctions with the modern police control room for effective monitoring.

The cameras also include those put up by private agencies at busy thoroughfares and traffic intersections.

The modern control room will act as the nerve centre in the long run for monitoring activities taking place across the city through linkage with surveillance cameras, said the police. The control room will be equipped with 40 LED display system through which the movements taking place across the city will be monitored, said Commissioner of Police A. Amalraj.

Twenty-four LEDs had already been installed inside the control room and the remaining will be put in place soon, police sources said.
