Wired: CCTV expansion in Cherng Talay

CHERNG TALAY, PHUKET: A construction company has built a new office for Cherng Talay Traffic Police entirely free of charge.

Wasi Construction Company spent 400,000 baht on the new building, which includes a CCTV control room for monitoring the 17 CCTV cameras in tambon Cherng Talay.

A second room will be used as a ‘one stop service’ center for the collection of traffic violation fines.

At 10am on Saturday, Phuket Provincial Police Deputy Commander Col Chalit Tinthanee presided over the opening ceremony for the new office, which is next to Cherng Talay Police Station on Srisoonthorn Road.

The building took around one month to build.

Lt Col Prawit Engchuan, who heads the Cherng Talay Traffic Police, said all the office equipment, including TVs for monitoring the CCTV cameras and the tables and chairs, had been donated to the police by the Wasi Construction Company, Laguna Phuket and the Wan Angkarn (Tuesday) Club of Phuket.

The new building is “very comfortable”, Lt Col Prawit said.

The CCTV control room will be manned by 11 Cherng Talay Traffic Police officers as well as two volunteers from Cherng Talay Municipality.

Of the 17 cameras the officers will be monitoring, 11 are operated by Cherng Talay Municipality and six by Cherng Talay Tambon Administration Organization.

Some of the cameras are used to monitor intersections, while others monitor crime hot-spots such as Soi Cherng Talay 16, where there are two cameras.

There are three at the junction just outside Cherng Talay Police Station.
