Use of metal detectors in shops mulled in proposed ordinance
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

Installation of metal detectors in establishments will soon become one of the requirements in the application or renewal of business permits.

The city council approved on first reading a proposed ordinance requiring malls, supermarkets, groceries, convenience stores, restaurants, night spots/bars, and other similar establishments in the city to provide security metal detectors in their entrances.

The measure, authored by Councilor Leandro Yangot, Jr., states that the move will be a means to curb crimes and other forms of violence inside establishments.

It cited the Constitution, which provides that the maintenance of peace and order, protection of life, liberty and property, and promotion of the general welfare are essential for the enjoyment by all people of the blessings of democracy.

The proposed ordinance states that “news of violence in public place is becoming more and more common. Today’s security devices such as metal detectors can spot any item that can be used as a weapon. The maintenance of peace and order and the prevention of crime is of primordial consideration. This legislative fiat is being advanced to help prevent the occurrence of crimes in public places.”

The measure proposed that violators will be fined P5,000.

Closed circuit TV cameras have become one of the most commonly used equipment in law enforcement, now even by private property owners and commercial building operators for surveillance and crime prevention. It is also used in traffic monitoring and industrial processes under conditions dangerous to humans.
