CM inaugurates CCTV camera surveillance network in Surat

Chief Minister: “The project will show path to the nation in establishing reliable vigilance network for crime detection”

Rising above the PPP model, the project has become the best example of four ‘P’ formula of ‘People’s Public Private Partnership’

Chief Minister Narendra Modi today dedicated to people closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera surveillance network - ‘Safe City Surat’ - of the Surat police. Inaugurating this unique public safety project based on public private partnership (PPP) model, the Chief Minister exuded faith that the project will show path to the nation in establishing reliable vigilance network for crime detection.

The project will be exemplary for other cities of Gujarat and will also infuse new vigor in the judicial system, he said.

The vigilance network covers over 200 km. radius of Surat city. About 104 CCTV cameras are installed at 26 strategic places. The Chief Minister went to the command and control centre of the project at the police commissioner’s office and sought information on various aspects of the project. He said the CCTV cameras will prove to be a ‘third eye’ of Surat police.

The first-ever in India, this project has been equipped with the latest technology at the cost of Rs.10.50 crore. The Chief Minister congratulated the police for setting up the network which will be instrumental in crime check and traffic control. He also congratulated the police for adding one more ‘P’ to the PPP model and coming up with four ‘P’ formula of People’s Public Private Partnership.

He said the project is the best example of convergence of human and technological capacities. Speaking about the crucial role of technology for the checking of crime the Chief Minister said, “Today when people with criminal mentality have started misusing latest technology, the good use of the same by police for the security of common men has become necessity.”

The Chief Minister said that Gujarat is having 24 hour power supply and a well-planned optical fiber network, which has helped Surat in initiating such project. “Gujarat police force is the youngest in India in average age. The state government’s approach is to recruit IT-trained youths in all cadres of police from constable to Police Inspector”, he said.

He hoped the project will be proved effective in crime detection and in dropping the crime rate. He suggested that the project can also give additional benefits to the municipal corporation and to the judicial system.

Minister of State for Home Rajnibhai Patel said that during Mr.Modi’s leadership the state is witnessing a safe and secure atmosphere, besides scaling new heights of growth. The state government is working hard for the safety and security of the citizens, he said.
