State-of-the-art CCTV installed in Taman Sahbat by June 2024

Kuching: Kuching South City Council (MBKS) has embarked on a ground-breaking project to update the outdated surveillance system in Taman Sahabat.

Mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng said the city council had taken decisive action to introduce cutting-edge technology aimed at enhancing safety in the area.

He said Taman Sahbat’s outdated closed-circuit television (CCTV) network, launched 10 years ago, is becoming increasingly unreliable and most of the equipment will fail by 2023.

“The council has submitted a proposal to the Sarawak Ministry of Public Health, Housing and Local Government seeking funding under Malaysia Plan 12 to replace the aging CCTV infrastructure in Taman Sahabat.

“Funding was approved at the end of 2023, leading to the project being tendered in March 2024.

“Work has begun on the latest CCTV project, with cabling work commencing in April,” he said in a statement.

The revamped surveillance network, scheduled to be completed by June 2024, promises to revolutionize security in Taman Sahbat.

Boasting unparalleled features such as high-resolution image processing, expanded storage capacity, and cutting-edge AI analysis, the new CCTV system is poised to become a powerful tool in the fight against criminal activity.

“MBKS expresses its deepest regrets to the victims of this unfortunate crime and asks for the understanding that this matter has already been resolved at an early stage and is on its way to being resolved.

“The council seeks to reassure the public that their safety and security is always the council’s top priority,” he added.

Looking to the future, he assured that the City Council remains steadfast and dedicated to promoting a safe environment for all residents.

He said more appropriate and innovative solutions would be introduced to further guarantee the peace and security of surrounding residents.
