VĨNH LONG — The Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Vĩnh Long will instal 114 traffic surveillance and security cameras by 2023 at a cost of nearly VNĐ200 billion (US$8.7 million).
Of them, 47 will be used to monitor the traffic and 67 to ensure social order and security.
Trần Hoàng Tựu, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said they would be installed at 79 sites and three operation and management centres.
The installation would help improve the effectiveness of crime-fighting, he said.
“Installing traffic surveillance cameras is necessary to help improve traffic control and raise public awareness of traffic rules.”
The province has more than 6,100 security cameras in 73 of its 109 communes, but most of them are old. — VNS
