The Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) announced on Monday that 2,500 of the 9,138 CCTV cameras planned for Bangkok have been installed.

 

The new CCTV project, expected to be completed by March, is part of moves to prevent crimes in the capital.

 

MPB deputy chief Pol Maj-General Jirapat Phumjit said the new cameras had been installed as a backup for the old ones. Also, officers can monitor the new cameras via their phones or monitors set up in their station.

 

Jirapat also said that each officer will be put in charge of eight to 10 cameras in their area of jurisdiction.

 

The installation will cost around Bt36 million and will be funded by the MPB, he added.

I hope they are the poor quality, low resolution ones that police seem to use the world over....the ones where you can never quite make out a face or a number plate.

Not sure about world use of cameras....in Australia the cameras can check on ones nose hair!!

In London you can be tracked everywhere. They have facial recognition and gait recognition, so if you hide your face you can be recognised by the way you walk, if you are in the database. Furthermore, you can be tracked almost all over the country too. Yes, Big Brother is watching you, and everybody else !!

"Also, officers can monitor the new cameras via their phones or monitors set up in their station."

Always enjoy their sense of humor. "Can" and "will" are very different words, ya know?

Yes unless Thailand learns that maintenance is also needed, they should stick

to the cheap cameras, as the life expectancy will not be long. Thieves will

be taking liberties as they continue to get poorer and more desperate.

Geezer
