“Mayor Relampagos specifically instructed a safe city by establishing more than 500 (security) cameras in the city,” said Disaster Risk Reduction Management Officer Prosper Dajalos during his interview on Ang Panabo Karon Radio 91.1 Program on October 2,2020. The installation is part of the Command System project of the city

The City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, headed by the City Mayor himself, allocated a total of 7.5 Million pesos for the first phase of the project which, besides the security cameras, includes early warning systems, a public address systems, and traffic signals. This is in close coordination with the Traffic Management Unit, Public Order and Safety Section, and the Information Technology Section.

Dajalos said that the Local Chief Executive needs to be aware of the situation of the city 24/7. “Complete with the visual data that he needs to direct action,” he added. The security cameras will function as traffic surveillance and surveillance system for peace and security. “We will be able to accomplish the phase one of the project by 2022. We will try to achieve the 500 cameras.”

The Second Phase of the project is the installation of surveillance systems at the upland or rural barangays. Dajalos mentioned that since there are new concrete roads in those areas, they will be expecting a significant number of traffic issues or vehicular accidents.

The Third or Final Phase of the project is the integration of the communication and the surveillance systems. According to Dajalos, the project will also take part in minimizing criminality in partnership with the PNP.

To date, a Command System (Center) worth 10 Million pesos is being constructed in front of the Disaster Center. There are also communication towers installed at the public market, near Land Bank, and at the Parks and Plaza.
