Nasa PhP45-milyong natipid sa procurement ng Body-Worn Camera System (BWCS) ng PNP ang gagamitin sa CCTV Rapid Deployment System para sa counter-terrorism operations ng kapulisan.
Ito ang isiniwalat ni PNP Chief PGEN Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar sa isang pahayag nitong Hunyo 6 matapos ang naging launch ng BWCS.
Sa PhP333-milyong badyet, nasa PhP288-milyon lang ang naging halaga ng procurement ng 2,696 body-worn camera units sa isang public bidding, kasama na ang accessories, video management software, computer servers, storage at connectivity systems ng camera units, installation ng central data center, national management at monitoring center, 17 regional monitoring centers, at 81 provincial monitoring centers.
“Medyo malaki po ang natipid natin sa pag-set up ng ating BWCS at ito ay nagpapatunay na ang perang ipinagkakatiwala ng taumbayan sa ating PNP ay fully accounted hanggang kahuli-hulihang sentimo,” pahayag ng PNP Chief.
Isinama ang natipid na halaga mula BWCS sa nasa PhP19-milyon namang savings mula pagpapaganda ng PNP Command Center para sa procurement ng CCTV Rapid Deployment System na nasa PhP60-milyon.
Mayroong 10 CCTVs na may artificial intelligence, video management, 10 CCTV mobile trailers, at 10 generators ang CCTV Rapid Deployment System. Bawat camera ay pwedeng lagyan ng nasa 200 litrato ng mga wanted na kriminal at terorista.
Bawat trailer naman ay may tatlong cameras.
Nasa PNP na ang cameras at hardware at inaasahang makukumpleto ang delivery itong Hulyo 2021.
