Municipal police are considering implementing high-tech security cameras from China to help solve traffic accidents and crack down on crimes in the capital.
Lieutenant General Sar Thet, chief of Phnom Penh police, said on Facebook that he led a delegation in China yesterday to observe locations where the security cameras are in use.
He also visited an unnamed company that develops security cameras. Lt Gen Thet said the company’s lenses can zoom in from 10 kilometres away in high resolution.
“This latest technology has many benefits for police. For example, when there is a traffic accident, the camera can help us know the colour of a shirt, the colour of a car, and number plates and hair colour,” he said. “When there are many cameras installed, we can also reduce the number of forces working on the street.”
