Pagadian City - Speaking before the local media early this week, Mayor Samuel S. Co announced that the city government is planning to come up with an ordinance requiring all businessmen in the city to install a close-circuit television (CCTV) camera in their respective business establishments.
Co said this move is in response to the increasing crime rate in the locality. Based on the assessment made by authorities, the recorded number of crimes such as robbery, hold-up, carnapping and other related crimes had increased in the past year.
According to Mayor Co, he will ask the members of the City Council to sponsor a city ordinance requiring all business establishments in the city to put up their own CCTV camera in their stores in order to help our local authorities to easily identify the criminals when a crime happens.
The local chief executive made it clear, that it is possible the said ordinance will be implemented in the next few months. This is because, Co said, the city government has not prepared this earlier especially so the members of the city council are still reviewing the provisions on this particular ordinance.
If this law will be implemented Mayor Co stressed, this will be an additional requirement for those who wish to put up their business and secure or renew their business permit.
