Police Commissioner A.K. Viswanathan on Monday reiterated that installation of closed circuit television cameras (CCTV) will ensure safety for all.
Releasing a compact disc of a short film, Third Eye, starring actor Vikram, on the importance of installing CCTVs, he appealed to people to install them in houses and establishments as his September deadline nears.
“Bringing the entire city under CCTV surveillance is an obligation. Moreover, the installation of such gadgets is essential since it is useful to deter and detect criminals. At times, it is easier for us to find out the truth in case of any fake complaint,” said Mr. Viswanathan.
Mr. Vikram said, “In Singapore, any woman can walk freely without fear even after midnight. By installing CCTVs, Chennai can also be made a safe place.”
