Crime-fighting through CCTVs 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Spot a criminal in his act and track him with that visual footprint. Packing Bengaluru's Central Business District (CBD) streets with CCTVs, the city police are revving up their surveillance game. But how does that work in those dark, desolate roads on the city's outskirts? Danger lurks in every corner for thousands of working women walking that last mile home. As darkness envelopes the streets, CCTVs, even if installed in big numbers, will hit a blind alley. The message is clear: Unless the city police, BBMP and Bescom work in tandem, safety will remain a weak point. More cameras The addition of 679 CCTV cameras by end of April will see the number skyrocket to 1,008. But that is impressive only in the CBD. The City Police Commissioner admits that without adequate streetlighting, reliability of the cameras will remain under a shade. Illuminating the streets is clearly the BBMP's task. But maintaining the estimated 4.8 lakh street lamps in the Palike's jurisdictional area of about 800 sq km is not an easy ...

BBMP budget: high property tax target receives flak 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The BBMP budget evoked a mixed response with some criticising the high property tax collection target while others lauded it. Urban expert R K Misra said high expectations from property tax may sound absurd, but the high target of Rs 3,723.25 crore reveals that the Palike has started cleaning up its house. "It is not that the BBMP does not have the potential to generate such huge revenues. All that the BBMP needs to do is to bring in some Aadhaar equivalent for identity of properties. It is high time the BBMP stops thinking that people are honest and will declare the actual size of their properties," said Misra. He felt that the BBMP has started streamlining its finances. He, however, was doubtful about the emphasis given to the plantation drive. "I am always skeptical about plantation drives since there is no proper monitoring system." Sridhar Pabbisetty of Namma Bengaluru Foundation said, "Over promise, under delivery - that sums up the 2017-18 budget of BBMP." He observed that the allocation of Rs 89 ...

A big boost to crime prevention 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The City police will soon bring more areas of Bengaluru under CCTV camera surveillance to prevent crimes and enhance convictions. The process to procure 679 CCTV cameras, 579 for law and order wing and 100 for traffic wing is on.The cameras will be functional in another two months. City Police Commissioner Praveen Sood says Bengaluru needs to have more CCTV cameras to help the law enforcers track down suspects and prevent crimes. "Content generated by CCTV cameras provide inputs for post-incident analysis, which may lead to detection of cases," he explains. Sood is convinced that CCTV cameras will act as deterrence to crimes. He elaborates: "Just a caution line reading 'the entire area is under CCTV surveillance' helps in crime-prevention." The number of cases being reported, especially those related to molestation, has gone up due to CCTV camera footages. "Molestations occurred in the past and occur even now. However, most cases would go unreported in the past. Thanks to CCTV footage which has evidence ...

With Assembly elections slated for 2018, the BBMP toed the state government's line by focusing on welfare schemes, but did not announce new taxes in its 2017-18 budget presented on Saturday.

Police have detained a self-styled human rights activist on the charge of assaulting a BBMP assistant engineer. According to police, the suspect Srinivas (47) is a resident of Lakshmipura and claims to be the leader of "Karnataka Human Rights Panel."

He threatened to kick Girish, an assistant engineer and teach him a lesson. When Girish objected to it, Srinivas assaulted him.
