Lucknow, Jun 22 (UNI) In order to keep a close watch on people's activity at crowded places, the Uttar Pradesh Police today introduced a high-tech pilot project called ''Integerated Life World Security'' by installing Close Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras at six busy places in the capital city.
Inaugurating the project, UP Director General of Police (DGP) Vikram Singh here told newspersons '' the six places that have been indentified for installation of CCTVs are -- Hazratganj crossing, Hazratganj police station, in front of Vidhan Sabha (dharna-sthal), Mayfair crossing, entry point at Janpath and ICICI Bank near Divisional Northern Railway Manager Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) office.'' After the success of this pilot project in Lucknow, it would be soon introduced in other parts of the state, Mr Singh assured.
The installation cost on each CCTV would come around Rs 55,000, while the one which is being fixed at Hazratganj police station would be done for free, the DGP said adding, it would help the senior officials to monitor the work of policemen in the police station.
