HÀ NỘI — The General Supervision Centre will be established by the end of this year to connect with and manage present camera systems.
According to a representative of the Hà Nội Department of Information and Communications (DoIC), CCTV systems of one-stop shops at local agencies are managed by district authorities but have not been connected on a city scale.
Hà Nội will, therefore, integrate all CCTV cameras for better efficiency in the near future.
The main public CCTV systems are set up at the headquarters of the National Security Guard Force, Hồ Chí Minh’s Mausoleum Command, Hà Nội City Police and Voice of Việt Nam. Besides this, there are private security cameras at hotels, restaurants and shopping malls. However, those systems are not fully invested and utilised, according to DoIC.
“Hà Nội has 400 public CCTV cameras and plans to have 4,000 more. An integration centre to direct and save data with superior technology is essential. We are developing a plan by the General Supervision Centre for Võ Chí Công Street and will inaugurate the project’s first phase by the end of 2017,” Nguyễn Đức Chung, head of Hà Nội People’s Committee, said.
He added that to build a centre with the latest innovations, Hà Nội was calling for investment from the private sector.
Also, the DoIC will review all public CCTV systems in the city in the aftermath of a case related to the CCTV at Văn Miếu Ward People’s Committee which stopped working in 2015. — VNS
