Facilitating public order
Centres monitoring public security to be set up countrywide
Over the past six years, there has been a reduction in ‘street’ crime within the Republic, thanks to advanced information and telecommunication technologies in use by the militia. These have enhanced operational capability and efficiency. The installation of video surveillance systems in heavily populated locations has helped greatly, with almost 16,000 sites now covered, via over 4,600 video cameras serving the Internal Affairs Department. Their footage has helped detect over 800 crimes this year and, in future, every urban settlement will be covered, as will regional centres.
Internal affairs bodies have launched contemporary technologies to ensure sustainable digital closed radio communication and efficient management of guard duties. Moreover, there are plans to provide all regional branches with similar equipment within the next two years.
