Yangon regional police have installed 411 CCTVs in 25 townships of Yangon in an effort to reduce crime, according to a report in the Myawady Daily yesterday.
The CCTVs have been installed in nine townships in the East district, six townships in the West district, five townships in the South district and five townships in the North district. There are altogether 411 CCTVs at 168 points in 25 townships.
The CCTVs will be monitored from control centres which are located at township police stations. Police will monitor the cameras and arrest those who are seen committing crimes, said superintendent of police Hla Wai from the Yangon regional police commander’s office.
Police have already installed 15 CCTVs at the Pazundaung night bazaar for the safety of the shoppers, said an official from Yangon City Development Committee.
To be able to reduce the crime in the Yangon Region, a combined team comprised of Yangon regional police and ward-based teams have been undertaking law enforcement measures since June 2016.
