CCTV public works to start


The Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) Company, which is the official pro-vider for the CCTV project of Dumaguete City, will negotiate with the management of the Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative II (NORECOII) for the free use of their electrical posts so that the cameras can be mounted safely and strategically.

Installing the CCTV cameras on the posts would speed up the completion of the project, according to PLDT. Officials from PLDT and the City Government have finalized the details so that the service provider can go full blast in its civil work for the installation of 330 modern high definition CCTV cameras for the entire city.
