KUCHING (Apr 26): Close-circuit televisions (CCTVs) will be installed at 18 strategic locations in Batu Kawa, said Local Government and Housing Minister Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian.

He said the project is a collaboration between his ministry and the Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA).

Dr Sim, who is also Batu Kawa assemblyman, said the installation of the CCTVs aim to strengthen and improve the security and safety of the public.

He also said the project covers the jurisdiction of four local councils in the southern region namely Kuching South City Council (MBKS) with 317 CCTVs in 80 locations; Kuching North City Commission (DBKU) with 310 CCTVs in 80 locations; MPP with 119 CCTVs in 30 locations; and Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) with 79 CCTVs in 20 locations.
