The police have identified 100 spots for installation of 162 cameras with the video footages to be monitored in a couple of centralised control rooms.

As per the plan, the cameras would be linked with the master control room and the office of the Assistant Commissioner of Police (Law and Order), Srirangam, through optic fibre connectivity.

The technical team of the police would review the functioning of the existing cameras installed at various places here.

Replying to a query, he said thrust had been accorded for free registration of cases.
