“We want to provide a sense of security or a safe zone to the estimated one million people who are passing the Monumento area each and every day. This is a whole government approach in our fight against criminality,” Roxas said.
Under the auspices of Oplan Lambat Sibat, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is spearheading the installation of CCTVs in key areas and busy intersections in Metro Manila including Monumento to monitor and help deter crime
Roxas launched the project on May 29 at Kabayan Hotel in Pasay Rotonda, where a total of 32 CCTV cameras were installed and “Safe Taxi Zones” monitored by CCTV cameras were established. Secretary Roxas initiated Project SAFE KAm to further strengthen the PNP’s operational activities under OPLAN Lambat-Sibat, a “deliberate, programmatic, and sustainable” approach in combating crimes.
