All private eyes to be linked to Gujarat's CCTV hub
An additional surveillance network of 10,000 CCTV cameras will be installed across the state covering 51 towns
The city's crime-fighting vision is set to dramatically improve from August when the government starts the process to plug CCTV feeds from private entities including residential societies into the state's main command and control centre, Trinetra, in Gandhinagar.
Next month, the state home department will begin constituting committees, making institutional arrangements, undertaking security assessment studies, and informing senior police officials to take appropriate steps.
"All residential societies will have to install IP-based cameras of stipulated specifications," said a senior police official.
An additional surveillance network of 10,000 CCTV cameras will be installed across the state covering 51 towns, with sharp focus on the state's entry and exit points with Rajasthan, MP, and Maharashtra.
