AGARTALA, April 3 (TIWN): Three closed-circuits TV (CCTV) cameras have been already installed in Bishalgarh Police and nine other police stations also have been already brought under CCTV camera surveillance, and installation in remaining stations would be done in phases.The Tripura government has decided to install close circuit (CC) camera in all police stations of the State, said a highly placed source of traffic department.The source further added that a total of 30 closed-circuits TV (CCTV) cameras have been installed in Agartala to keep a close watch on street crime across the sprawling capital. But we need atleast 300 CCTV cameras to keep a close watch on street crime across the sprawling capital, the source added. Out of the 30 closed-circuits TV (CCTV) cameras 15 have been installed in Swami Vivekananda Stadium and one in Police Head Quarter (PHQ), 2 in fire service, 4 in Battala, 4 in Nagarjala, 3 in city centre and 3 in post office Chowmuhani, the source added.

The CCTV cameras will help the police in not only averting crimes on roads but collect evidence and quickly nab the culprits. Due to recent cases of many fatal accidents, Tripura Police are planning to install CCTVs at spots across Agartala which see frequent accidents.

 The footage collected will help traffic police understand how these accidents take place. Is there any set pattern to it or not? The police will then rectify the flaws,” the source added.

Last year, the traffic police had shortlisted spots with high fatal accidents. But this year the police have also added those spots where simple accidents are frequent.

According to this project, the traffic police will start with major intersections which are accident prone. It will begin as a pilot project. After analyzing the data and results, the police will then plan its further plan of action, the source informed.
