Already, tourist security forces and Indian reserve battalion (IRB) personnel guard the beaches. The high power monitoring committee last week, approved the proposal to install CCTV cameras.
The CCTV cameras will be installed with the help of Goa Electronics Ltd (GEL). However, the cost of the project has not been finalized.
With its high-end beach resorts, parties and restaurants, Goa is one of the major tourist attractions in the country. In North Goa, Calangute-Candolim and Baga stretch receive maximum tourists during the season, whereas in South Goa, tourists throng beaches at Colva, Cavelossim and Palolem. Other major tourist spots include Old Goa world heritage church complex and some temples located in Ponda like Shantadurga temple, Kamakshi temple, Mangueshi temple and Ramnathi temple.
