Nat’l law on CCTV installation pushed

Nov. 24, 2015

DAVAO CITY — The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (PDRRMC) passed a resolution Monday asking Congress, through the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), to a pass a national law on establishment of CCTVs.

The resolution was the result of the discussion  to institutionalize the Oplan Lambat Sibat in  the province that came after the presentation of Davao del Norte Police Provincial Office (DNPPO) director, Police Senior Superintendent Samuel Gadingan.

In a Philippine Information Agency dispatch, Gadingan said “lambat or net tackles crime prevention strategies through fusion of anti-criminality campaign activities such as checkpoints, boat patrol and mobile patrol, while the sibat or spear is intelligence-driven operation requiring dedicated tracker teams to arrest most wanted persons and criminal groups”.

He said the Oplan Lambat Sibat is expected to result in “deliberate, systematic and sustainable crime solution that is rights and ethical-based.”

“The analysis of crime situation would no longer be anecdotal,” he said.

Gadingan said there is a need to install CCTVs in business establishments with capitalization of P300,000.00 and above as information gathering helps resolve crime.  (
