No more blindspots: Angeles City to install more CCTVs 

ANGELES CITY — The city government under the leadership of Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. will complete the installation of additional security cameras in 67 sites throughout the city by November 2024, leaving no blind spots. 

This is part of Mayor Lazatin’s project in expanding the city’s existing video safety and security systems.

Lazatin’s Chief Adviser IC Calaguas on April 25, 2024 shared this development when she presided over a meeting with Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel, Information Communication and Technology Division Chief Michael Lising, General Services Office Head Evangeline Malonzo, Angeles City Economic Development Investment Promotions Officer-in-Charge Irish Bonus-Llego, and City Engineer Officer-in-Charge Helen Ayro.

Calaguas said that it has been a priority program of Mayor Lazatin to implement advanced technology in addressing public safety.

With this move, Calaguas said, Mayor Lazatin undercores his commitment to proactive measures for further crime prevention, as well as law enforcement and emergency response.

Mayor Lazatin, Calaguas added, is also encouraging barangay officials and homeowners associations to complement this by installing cameras in all barangay roads and subdivisions in order to prevent small time akyat-bahay criminals from preying on innocent kababayans.

To date, the city government, through the Angeles City Emergency Disaster Command Center, has a total of 186 closed-circuit television (CCTv) cameras installed in Angeles City, including 62 PTZ Camera Spec 8mp with 36x Optical zoom with wide dynamic range;14 Bullet Cameras 4mp with wide dynamic range; and fully fiber optic cable.
