NCD to manage security surveillance cameras with police


National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop says they are in discussions with police to manage the security surveillance cameras in public areas to enforce law and order in Port Moresby.
Parkop said that they would relocate cameras that have been blocked by pillars with signs to welcome the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation delegates along main roads .
“Pillars won’t be removed. We will only relocate the CCTV cameras,” Parkop said.
“We are now discussing with the NCD police metropolitan command to now transfer the ownership of these cameras from the National Capital District Commission to them.”
Apec Minister Justin Tkatchenko had said that there were about 200 cameras installed on routes from the airport, over the Kumul Fly Over, Sir John Guise Drive, Waigani Drive, International Convention Centre, Wards Drive to Hilton Hotel, Hohola, onto the Poreporena Freeway, to downtown Port Moresby and Apec Haus.
The Chinese government had funded the cameras at a cost of more than K30 million as their support for PNG hosting Apec.
Tkatchenko also said that after the meeting, the cameras would be handed over to NCD police.
