"No CCTV, No Business
QUEZON CITY, METRO
MANILA— Starting next year, businesses in Quezon
City will be required to install closed-circuit television cameras
Mayor Herbert Bautista has
directed the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) to make this
effective next year.
Bautista is expecting all
establishments to install their own CCTV after the set six-month
The BPLO is also ordered to
conduct inspections in establishments prior to issuance of business
Bautista said that this is in
line with achieving peace and order in the city and to prevent
robberies, which usually happen in high risk establishments such as car
traders, schools, convenience stores, gasoline stations and banks.
With the installation CCTV
cameras, the city government eyes that the city’s crime
resolution and efficiency rate will improve over the next three years.
This strategy will also be helpful in terms of improving
city’s road networks.
Government establishments are
also told to set up CCTV cameras in their areas of responsibility,
which will be useful in times of calamity.
