CCTV cameras vs. “spaghetti” cables

The PARADOX of modern CCTV cameras for Dumaguete are mixed with WWar II ventage dangling telephone wires (left) which defeats the purpose of modernizing in the midst of primitive cables.

The installation of 336 high definition CCTV cameras continue and is expected to be completed by July in the poblacion areas and before the annual fiesta for the outlying barangays. For every camera installed, live and vivid images are sent to the command center inside the city hall compound to prevent and solve crimes, monitor traffic and serve as early warning during calamities.
