THE local government has initiated Security and Surveillance Equipment and System Project (SSESP) or the Public Safety Program aimed to promote a safe Zamboanga City, is now in full swing.
Costing P117 million, the SSESP is a priority project of Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar aimed to provide a command center that will act as a coordinating center for security, intelligence and disaster response.
The center will coordinate the city ordinance implementation such as peace and order and traffic.
Christopher Mandi, the designated head of the Command Center, said the project will involve the installation of 130 full high definition cameras with nine-kilometer fiber optic cabling with industrial data center.
Mandi said the system will use intelligent video analytic powered by Huawei with state of the art and future-proofed.
The fiber optic cabling will also interconnect the different offices of the command center, according to Mandi.
Alan Aizon, in-charge of the technical side, said the center will utilize technology to augment the limited traffic enforcers and ordinance implementation unit of the local government.
The center will study and implement contact-less apprehensions: “Meaning we will implement traffic rules using are CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) footage. Like in other cities like Makati, wherein even if there are no enforcers, the CCTV system can capture a snapshot of you beating a red light or doing a U-Turn on double-lined street” Aizon emphasized.
