After the successful launching of Project SAFE KAm in Pasay Rotonda, Secretary of the Interior and Local Government Mar Roxas ordered the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) to install more closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in the Bonifacio Monumento-Caloocan area.
During the Philippine Semiconductor and Electronics Convention and Exhibition at the World Trade Center in Pasay City, Roxas said investing in Filipinos’ capabilities and human capital is like planting the seeds of a better tomorrow for the whole country. Roxas cited the huge leap in infrastructure projects and other development programs that aim to improve the delivery of quality healthcare, education, and access to basic utilities such as power and water for Filipinos.
The first 32 CCTV cameras were installed along the busy intersection of Pasay Rotonda, located at the corner of EDSA and Taft Avenue in Pasay City. “About one million people from all walks of life pass by the EDSA-Taft area every day, and one way to make this area safe for them is to install CCTV cameras in strategic locations that will capture all the happenings from all the corners of the area,” Roxas said.
