BHUBANESWAR: The Commissionerate Police is all set to expand the scope of its CCTV surveillance network to suburbs of the Capital City by installing 100 more cameras. Besides keeping a track on traffic offenders, the CCTVs will also keep a watch on criminal elements on the outskirts of the City.

Police Commissioner Dr RP Sharma on Thursday told mediapersons that a list of about 100 locations has already been drawn for the second phase of the CCTV surveillance exercise. This time though, the surveillance quality will be improved as provision for pan-tilt-zoom features in the cameras will be chosen. Some of the major junctions of the City will also have similar cameras.

Since the Odisha State Police Housing and Welfare Corporation executes the project, it will take a decision in consultation with the police. A detailed project report will also be prepared for this purpose by the Corporation.

This proposed phase is expected to be completed next year. Currently, there are 116 CCTV cameras installed in the City.
