CCTV, no ID–no entry urged to prevent crimes in schools
by Briccio Domondon Jr.

The installation of closed circuit television cameras (CCTVs) and the strict enforcement of the no ID, no entry policy in school premises could help minimize, if not totally prevent, thieves from entering schools.

Councilor Edison Bilog made the proposal after a recent committee hearing where a school official revealed some civilians who enter school premises pose as parents or guardians and then conduct criminal activities.

The official said theft in schools has become rampant. Some of the thieves are said to be out-of-school youths  who usually join parents or guardians  who wait for their wards to finish their classes.

They pretend to be parents or guardians of the pupils, so they are able to enter the school premises and victimize teachers, administrators, and students.

In his proposal, Bilog requested parents-teachers associations of schools in the city to help in the purchase of CCTVs and have it installed in school premises to augment monitoring efforts to curb further incidents of theft.

Bilog added these incidents should be a wake-up call for school authorities to be strict in the implementation of their no entry policies, not just among the students but also the guardians or those authorized to fetch kids.

Noting the lack of budget for the purchase and installation of CCTVs and the hiring of additional security guards for the schools, the councilor proposed that the Benguet Electric Cooperative be requested if it could install CCTVs near school premises as it had done with the city’s  main thoroughfares.

Earlier, the Regional Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee asked the city government to require businessmen to install CCTVs in their establishments.

The role of CCTVs in the resolution of various crimes and monitoring of activities and transactions that may be used for future references have been reportedly proven effective in the city and elsewhere in the country.

A popular television news program has even started devoting a segment featuring captured videos  of crimes through the use of CCTVs.
