Ordinance on CCTVs in Boracay, time to be modified

It is time to modify the ordinance regarding Close Circuit Television/CCTV Camera on selected establishments in Boracay.

This is what SB Member Rowen Aguirre said during an interview.

He said that the island have an ordinance for this, but only selected establishments like banks and pawnshops are required to have CCTVs.

This is the reason why they wanted this to be changed in order for other establishments to have their own CCTV cameras to protect their business.

Although he acknowledged the fact that this will be costly for the owners, he said this will be of a great help in apprehending bad entities and resolving crimes.

He also admitted that even the local government of Malay plans to set up CCTV cameras in strategic areas in the island especially at the front beach.

Nonetheless the LGU has no fund for this at the moment, but they already had communicated with technical people for installation and supplies.

Recently there have been a number of theft and snatching and even chasing incidents with the suspects who unfortunately had gotten away.

However, when the CCTV of some establishments was checked it was not clear and the incident hasn’t really been caught by the camera.
