The state of insecurity in the country has prompted the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu to begin urgent plans to install “closed-circuit television (CCTVs) and other cutting-edge technologies in major cities in the country for city surveillance”.
Adamu made the disclosure on Monday while reviewing the security situation in the country for the past one month with senior police officers in Abuja.
In addition to installing CCTVs, so as to enhance the fight against criminality, the IGP disclosed that there are “plans directed at re-organising and re-launching the Safer Highway and Safer City Models of Policing which will entail the acquisition of new fleet of vehicles that will be deployed to dominate the public space”.
