The cameras would be installed on main streets, roads and squares. Jatav said that CCTVs had become a must owing to the burgeoning population of the city.

Panic buttons would be installed at Chhapan Dukan, Rajwada, Railway Station, Airport, Bus stand and Bhanwarkuan Square. As soon as the button would be pressed, an alert message would be received by nearby police station. This will enable a woman to secure police help immediately. The buttons would be installed in Monopole that would send audio-vide information to the nearby police station, said the collector.

Jatav said that CCTVs would also help Integrated Traffic Management System. He also announced that henceforth installation of CCTVs would be mandatory for granting permission for construction of a new colony.

CCTVs are proposed in schools and colleges too. These CCTVs would be installed in collaboration with social, industrial, academic and voluntary organizations. The company tasked with CCTV installation would also be responsible for their maintenance.

The cameras will run via internet. Presently 20 internet companies are working in the district. On this occasion other police officers were also present.
