Firm offers facility for no contact apprehension
by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

The city government will study an offer from a private company to provide infrastructure that would facilitate the implementation of the no contact apprehension policy in the city.

Advantech Solutions presented its technology before city executives and city councilors that promises enhanced fiber optic capabilities and no contact apprehension capability of international standards.

The project would involve the laying down of kilometers long conduits for fiber optics and no contact apprehension infrastructure side by side with the installation of the Smart City project platform using ultra-modern and “teachable” cameras that ensure high violation detection rate. 

Mayor Benjamin Magalong is convinced that the technology will complement the city’s Smart City venture as it will augment the number of cameras that the Smart City project could provide.

He said the fiber optics and no contact apprehension facilities will be constructed at no cost to the city and the company’s gain would come in the form of shares from the fines collected.

The P200-million Office of the President-backed Smart City project that would provide the city a state-of-the-art integrated and multi-purpose command center with the use of top-of-the-line technology and artificial intelligence to tackle peace and order, traffic and disaster response is set to kick off this year. 

However, it would only provide around 70 to 80 cameras in its area of coverage and Advantech offers additional 500 cameras and fiber optics facilities for optimal effectiveness.

The mayor said the city will consider the offer while he asked the city council under Vice Mayor Faustino Olowan to study the passage of a no contact apprehension ordinance.

Advantech is expected to submit its proposal to be studied by the city.

“The proposal will be evaluated and if in case we like it, we will provide a certificate of acceptance and give the company an original proponent status and then we will publish the proposal and accept other proposals to challenge it,” the mayor said.
