La Trinidad eyes putting up of surveillance operations center
by Ofelia C. Empian

An operations center complete with surveillance technologies is being eyed to be put up in the La Trinidad, Benguet.

Councilor Roderick Awingan said the operations center will help synchronize the municipality’s program on peace and order, disaster risk reduction, and waste management.

Awingan said they are aiming to put up 36 CCTV cameras initially within the central business district such as at the vegetable trading post, public market, and around the town hall.

He said a P700,000 fund was set aside for the installation of the CCTVs from the 2018 budget.

“This will be a real-time reporting with the use of high resolution surveillance cameras,” Awingan said.

The CCTVs will be set up along with speakers to use to warn people who are committing crimes or violating municipal laws.

The program supports the local government’s neighborhood watch program, which is a community-based approach in crime prevention and maintenance of peace and order.

Town Ordinance 12-2018 or the “La Trinidad Neighborhood Watch Program” authored by Awingan, aims to enhance and strengthen the cooperation, coordination and partnership between communities, the municipality, the barangays and the municipal police station towards crime prevention.

Components of the Neighborhood Watch Program are the Bantay Paaralan or Eskwela, Bantay Kalsada and Bantay Barangay Patrol Action Teams.  

Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Officer Yoshio Labi said the operations center will be manned by an accredited disaster volunteer, one from the police and fire department who will work on shifts.

Labi said the MDRRM building, which will house the operations center, is currently under construction.

Awingan said they are also encouraging barangays to setup CCTV cameras in their respective areas as a tool in strengthening peace and order.
