MOSCOW, February 9 (Itar-Tass) —— All Moscow squares and streets will be equipped with modern video surveillance cameras in 2012, which will make it possible for the law enforcement agencies to reach a new level in combatting crime, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Thursday at an enlarged meeting of the collegium of the Moscow main investigation department of the Investigative Committee.
The mayor noted that in order for the struggle of the law enforcement agencies to be successful they need the most up to date equipment in order “to create a new information environment in the city.” “This year all main squares, streets, courtyards and entrances will be equipped with high quality video surveillance cameras with high resolution, good signal transmission, processing and storage of information,” Sobyanin noted.
“All this creates absolutely new technical and analytical capacities in the process of struggle against crime. But to attain this goal, it is not enough just to equip them (the law enforcement agencies – Itar-Tass) with video surveillance cameras, it is necessary to develop the special software, special analytical and surveillance system for what is happening in the city,” Moscow's mayor said.
The new video surveillance system will allow all law enforcement agencies to simultaneously process a gigantic volume of information coming from the video surveillance cameras, Sobyanin pointed out. “So that the criminals in the city, including those coming to us, are aware that the city is protected,” the mayor pointed out.
“This is a new stage in the work of the law enforcers and the city. We should ensure it this year,” he underlined.
