Bauko Mayor Abraham Akilit has ordered the installation of CCTV cameras in all 22 barangays of the municipality.
The Mountain Province politiko said the move aims to further deter crime in Bauko.
Akilit said the pilot-testing of the CCTV cameras in Barangay Guinzadan yielded good results.
He explained that people are now more conscious of their actions because of the presence of CCTVs.
“The successful pilot testing of the installation of the CCTV cameras in strategic areas in Guinzadan served as our basis in deciding to work out the installation of CCTV cameras in all the town’s twenty two barangays within the year,” he said.
