Iloilo City villages have started installing Closed-circuit Camera Televisions (CCTVs) in strategic locations as a preventive security measure and for easier tracking of evidence whenever crimes are committed.
Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog welcomed the development saying the support of barangays in establishing safer communities is very commendable.
Some 40 out of the 180 barangays in city already set up their CCTVs which are considered deterrent against crimes and a reliable source of information in solving criminalities.
Barangays are also encouraged to enhance their patrols and tanods for faster response to emergencies and serve as force multiplier in dealing with incidents.
Mabilog also sought stakeholders’ support in making the city safe for residents and visitors. (Iloilo City PIO)
