Iloilo villages urged to put up CCTV


ILOILO CITY: Leaders of 180 villages in this were urged to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) system to monitor the peace and order situation and prevent crimes in their respective areas.

City Councilor Nielex Tupas said the proposal was welcomed by Liga ng mga Barangay President Carlos Guarin to level up the communication technology in the villages.

However, Guarin said there are many barangays which cannot afford to pay for CCTV cameras and its installation.


Tupas said he is campaigning for benefactors to donate the CCTV units to the barangays. A family has donated two CCTV units each to selected 22 city schools.

Tupas said the proposal is not mandated in the CCTV ordinance but village officials are fully supporting it.

Only 267 out of the 577 registered but high risk business establishments were issued with CCTV certificate of compliance.
