No CCTV camera, no biz permit

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Jan. 4 — The Cagayan de Oro City police said on Friday that it will recommend the “no CCTV camera, no business permit” policy during the renewal and issuance of new business permit this year.

Senior Supt. Graciano Mijares, chief of the city police, said his office has dispatched a team of police officers tasked to inspect all business establishments in the city in compliance with the closed circuit television (CCTV) Camera Ordinance.

He said the team will also find out if the installed CCTV cameras function since some establishments simply install CCTVs only for compliance.

Mijares said the police team will also examine if the installed CCTV cameras would operate according to the standards set, especially in image resolution so that the cameras could provide a clear picture of things and objects.

According to Mijares, financial and lending institutions were required to strictly install CCTV cameras in their premises.

Mijares said the installation of CCTV cameras was covered by a city ordinance as part of security measures to deter and resolve crimes at the earliest possible time through footages and images of possible suspects.

He said that the police investigation team will recommend whether a business permit would be denied or issued in favor of the establishment. (PNA)
