20,000 CCTVs for Bangkok
Bangkok Governor MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra Tuesday promised to have more than 20,000 security cameras up and running across the capital before the end of this year. So far, half of them are already in place.
"We will install 10,000 more," he said, adding that many of these cameras would be installed in areas where student brawls have taken place in the hope of preventing such violence.
"Cameras will also be installed at communities with a high concentration of schools," he said, adding that the cameras would be linked to 88 police stations across the capital to boost public safety.
