Sixteen more Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Cameras are to be installed in strategic locations to add to the 17 that are already in place in an effort to beef up security in the city.

In a consultative meeting last October 4, 2013 at the Office of the City Mayor in preparation for this undertaking, 8ID G6 Office (Communications and Electronics Information System) Unit Head Lt. Col. Jigz Gesolgon stressed that the CCTV cameras are mere tools and that a system should

be in place to maximize its functions.

This will entail massive planning particularly in identifying critical spots concerning not just peace and order maintenance or crime investigations, but also for the purposes of search and rescue operations, emergency response and disaster management.

Other participants in the consultation included City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Action Officer Eliot Lopez, who presided over the meeting, PINSP Serrano Robediso from the Philippine National Police, Engr. Arnaldo Aroza City Planning and Development Coordinator and representatives from the Bits ‘n Bytes Computer Services who will be in charge of the maintenance.

The City Planning and Development Coordinating Office has agreed to provide a more comprehensive city map to better determine which areas are in need of a CCTV Camera. The PNP has likewise agreed to assist in identifying such areas based on their knowledge of the city’s critical areas.

The said meeting came at a time of mounting concerns on peace and order after two shooting incidents claimed the lives of a former barangay chairman of this city and a current first councilor of Barangay Tagbayaon in the neighbouring town of Jiabong.

The city mayor had already released a press statement in the form of a status posted yesterday around 2 o’clock PM in her Facebook page wherein she described the series of events as “alarming”.

The first victim, former Brgy. Lagundi Chairman Filomeno Cabarriban, 47, was shot last September 30, 2013 in broad daylight. While the second victim, identified as Narciso Lagbo, a first councilor of Brgy. Tagbayaon, town of Jiabong was shot last October 3, 2013, ironically the same day that a joint meeting of the Peace and Order Council and City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management was held.

“It is for this reason that I am appealing to the Philippine National Police to step up necessary actions to curb these crimes that are happening in our city,” she said. The lady mayor then called for everybody’s vigilance and cooperation so as to bring resolution to these crimes. “Let us not allow violence to rule over our beloved City. Let us, at all times protect our peaceful abode against criminal elements who are trying to wreak havoc on our society and demoralize our people”, she added.

Although the CCTV cameras are meant to serve as extra eyes during a time of police personnel shortage, these will also be complimented with the installation of additional streetlamps.
