CCTV should be installed in all public roads

ACT-CIS Partylist Representative Rowena Niña Taduran proposes the installation of closed circuit television cameras in all public roads which can be both detrimental to commission of crimes and beneficial in the investigation of criminal acts and other events.

CCTVs which should be placed in all electric light posts, particularly in national roads, can be effective in crime monitoring, according to the House Asst. Majority Leader.

Local government units can take care of other public roads in their jurisdiction, adds Taduran.

“Kung mayroong CCTV sa public roads, madali nang maisasagawa ang imbestigasyon sa mga pangyayari, tulad ng sinasabing misencounter sa pagitan ng QCPD at PDEA. Imumungkahi ko rin na tanggalin na ang paghingi ng court order para lamang makuha ang mga CCTV recording kahit sa mga pribadong establishments lalo na kung may kinalaman sa imbestigasyon ng krimen. Nakakapagpabagal lang kasi ito sa resolusyon ng kaso,” says Taduran.

“Kung mayroon tayong mga CCTVs sa public roads, hindi na kailangang manawagan ni PDEA Director Wilkins Villanueva sa publiko na ipadala sa kanyang Facebook page ang mga cellphone videos ng insidente para makatulong sa imbestigasyon,” adds Taduran.

Under the Data Privacy Act, CCTV recording or footage can be retrieved and used when it is for responding to national emergency, or to comply with the requirements of public order and safety, or to fulfill functions of public authority which necessarily includes the processing of personal data for the fulfillment of its mandate.

Taduran also calls for a deeper investigation into the purported misencounter between the policemen and the drug enforcement unit.

“I am calling the attention of law enforcement agencies to ensure proper coordination to avoid these unfortunate incidents and to prevent unnecessary injuries and loss of lives,” ends Taduran.
