BANGKOK, Thailand-- The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) is upgrading all close circuit televisions (CCTVs) installed in the capital to be automatically connected with its all control centres and police stations, the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.
It quoted Bangkok Governor Police General Asawin Kwanmuang as saying that the electronic circuits of all 34,000 "stand alone" CCTVs in the city would be upgraded for the automatic function.
"Once upgraded, all the 34,000 CCTVs in all 50 districts in the capital will be functionally-connected with the City Hall's 12 control centers and 88 police stations in the city," he said.
The upgrading exercise should be completed within the next two months.
He said he has also instructed all district authorities to fix within one day any CCTV in their areas that was out of order.
He also noted that BMA will continue to join forces with soldiers of the King's Guard Regiment, royal staff and general volunteers to clean water sources, roads and public sites in the capital, as assigned by King Maha Vajiralongkorn.
