HÀ NỘI — Twenty surveillance cameras have been installed in key locations in nine communes and towns and on provincial road No. 8 in Cư M’gar District in the Central Highland Province of Đắk Lắk.
The district is the first locality in the Central Highland region to have surveillance cameras installed to help police inspect traffic flow and incidents in a timely manner.
Thanks to the cameras, relevant agencies detected and cracked down on 10 illegal timber trafficking cases, seizing over 20cum.m of timber, and charged five traffickers.
The police, meanwhile, cracked down on a case involving a drug dealer and drug users. They also arrested three motorbike thieves and succeeded in curbing illegal motorbike racing.
The district plans to install more cameras in crowded residential areas and administrative centres to ensure better public order and security and improve public service delivery quality.
In the last few years, surveillance cameras have been installed in public places in large cities such as Hà Nội and HCM City.
These cameras have proved very effective in curbing crime, ensuring public security and detecting traffic violations in the country. — VNS
