MANILA, Philippines — The local government of Quezon City will soon install 1,500 closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) to amplify safety in major thoroughfares in the city.

In a statement on Monday, Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said this was made possible after the Quezon City government partnered with the Department of the Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) Safe Philippines project launched in November.


“We are glad to receive the CCTV cameras from DILG. This is a smart solution as we improve our monitoring system in the city,” Belmonte said.

“With our policies and programs, we can better provide fast, efficient, and reliable emergency response services to all our citizens,” the Quezon City mayor added.


Aside from intensifying security in the city, Belmonte said the security cameras will also heighten its “disaster risk reduction and management measures.”
