Ajman ruler issues decree to increase CCTV deployment

Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi calls on owners of buildings in emirate to install surveillance equipment

Ajman ruler issues decree to increase CCTV deployment

Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, ruler of Ajman, has issued a decree to encourage the deployment of security equipment and devices on buildings in the emirate.

The decree follows a report by the General Command of Ajman Police on the importance of issuing local legislation under which owners of buildings will be obliged to install security surveillance equipment, news agency WAM reported on Monday.

Brigadier Sheikh Sultan bin Abdullah Al Nuaimi, Commander-in-Chief of Ajman Police, said that that the decree aims to strengthen security and stability in the emirate.

In July, the Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre (ADMCC) announced the launch of a Falcon Eye system throughout the city of Abu Dhabi, including the Abu Dhabi International Airport, the main islands, and the areas of Bani Yas and Musaffah.

The system, which provides warnings and allows quick access to events and incidents, links thousands of cameras spread across the city, as well as thousands of other cameras installed at facilities and buildings in the emirate.
