CCTV Camera installation at Police Stations

August, 2014

Registering FIRs at Police Stations by the public, in particular by Women, have been a harassing experience for many. B.PAC raised this issue with the Police Commissioner and got a very positive response. It was decided that CCTV will be installed in all Police Stations in Bengaluru in phased manner. B.PAC readily offered to take up the CCTV installations as a project, and put forward a solution to facilitate the beginning of this process, starting from our neighbourhood police stations.  There are 108 police stations in Bangalore city and B.PAC in collaboration with Bangalore City Police has installed CCTVs in 48 Police Stations so far and more are in progress. This will enhance transparency and accountability in the police functioning and  promote friendly policing.
