MOSCOW, July 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has called to ensure video monitoring of every entrance to apartment blocks in Moscow at a meeting with head officials of Moscow power structures held in an extended format on Thursday.
The Moscow government has already began work on the establishment of a comprehensive system of video monitoring in public places and residenatial sectors, he said. A total of 1,280 video cameras have already been installed and connected to corresponding centers, Sobyanin said. The video cameras were established in streets, on squares, near metro stations, in public places where mass events are held. Around 1, 200 more cameras are to be established by the year's end, Sobyanin said.
Over the past six months a total of 8,000 video cameras have been established in yards of apartment blocks, and 4,000 video cameras have been established in the stairway of such houses.
"We hope that after the system operates in full its effectiveness in respect to ensuring public security will grow considerably," the mayor said.
For purposes of ensuring traffic safety a total of 150 monitor complexes ensuring video registration of violations have been established since the beginning of the year, which helped track down more than 830,000 offences and find more than 6,000 stolen vehicles.
Since April 2012 ten mobile video registration complexes were commissioned in Moscow streets. Until the end of 2012 a total of 450 permanent mobile video registration complexes and 100 mobile complexes will have been commissioned in Moscow, Sobyanin said.
