The Negros Occidental provincial government is conducting a feasibility study for the upgrading of its closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system that will interconnect coverage of all its facilities in the province, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said today, November 25.
A project proposal will then be submitted to the governor for approval, he said.
Renelo Lastierre, head of the Capitol’s Security and Safety Division, said the system will cover all the provincial government-run hospitals and facilities.
This will enable the governor to view what is happening in provincial government facilities around the province with just one click on his cellular phone, he added.
A monitoring system at the Capitol’s security office will be able to cover all areas with the upgrade, he said.
He said the CCTVs of the provincial government need to be upgraded to provide clearer videos of persons going in and out of its facilities, Lastierre said.
The old CCTVs took blurred videos that would make it difficult to identify thieves, he said.*
