In Herning and Silkeborg will increase the security of urban inhabitants, and it must be done by setting up fixed cameras to film around the clock.
The new cameras have been placed in and around the Østergade in Herning, denmark in Silkeborg, they must cover the area around the Skoletorvet.
It informs the Middle - and Vestjyllands Police in a press release.
placement is a sign, so you know you are entering a surveillance zone. The intention with the cameras is not to monitor citizens, although it is being filmed around the clock. The plan is that the footage will be used, if there is a concrete reason for it, as in fights or theft.
It explains the vicepolitiinspektør and head of the lokalpolitiet in Silkeborg, denmark, to Jens Ole Pedersen.
- It is not England, it is here. We do not sit and stare into a screen all the time, that we have not manning. We will look at the footage, if there arises a need in the context of a clearing.
The nine cameras were installed a few weeks ago, but it is only in the last week, that they were connected to the system and switched on.
The many hours of recordings directly onto a server, which is associated with the police headquarters in Holstebro, so that not even the local cops can keep an eye on what its citizens are doing.
- You can keep an eye on what happens live, but it will the ushers do not do. They will more than look with the live, if there is a huge brawl in time, says Jens Ole Pedersen.
Why should mrs Jensen of Silkeborg not feel monitored when she takes the trip over Skoletorvet in the future.
the Possibility that the police can monitor citizens were adopted in the budget in 2018.
That was allocated for the police to be able to increase their video surveillance of freely available places. In total, has been granted 100 cameras across the country, and nine of them have ended up in the Middle - and Vestjyllands Police.
the Appropriation from the finance is the reason for that Middle - and Vestjyllands Police now have set up four security-building cameras in denmark, and five in Silkeborg, denmark.
the Location of the cameras has been out for consultation in Kredsrådet in the Middle - and west Jutland, and is thus in close coordination with the municipalities of Herning and Silkeborg.
