Tagbilaran will be pushing for the installation of CCTVs on business establishments as part of the growing need for security and to help law enforcement in its campaign against crime.
The move comes with much emphasis on peace and order in the city.
The Tagbilaran city mayor said the move “further reinforces our campaign of strengthening the protection and security.”
In his Facebook, Mayor John Geesnell Yap posted that the implementing rules and regulations of the ordinance mandating business establishments to intall CCTVs have been polished and ready.
He said businesses with more than 20 employees and in a workplace of at least 50 square meters are mandated to install CCTVs.
Businesses that don’t meet the criteria mentioned earlier but have daily transactions of no less than P100,000 and operate beyond 8 pm, are also required to install CCTVs.
Meanwhile, City Traffic Management Officer Tony Samonte reported to Yap that his office remitted more than P4.5 million to the Treasurer’s Office after a year of the clamping ordinance in the city together with other fines from traffic violations.
Yap revealed the information also in his Facebook post.
The mayor posted a screenshot of the text message sent to him by Samonte.
