Rep. Duterte: Install CCTV cameras in commercial establishments to help deter crime
QUEZON CITY - Lawmakers led by Davao City First Congressional District Representative Paolo Duterte have pressed Congress to swiftly pass a measure requiring business establishments to install and maintain closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras in their workplaces and exits, as a means to deter crime and aid investigations conducted by law enforcers.
With Benguet Rep. Eric Yap and ACT-CIS Partylist Rep. Edvic Yap, the Davao City lawmaker filed House Bill (HB) 8068 that aims to mandate all businesses employing more than 20 workers and with work premises of not less than 50 meters to install CCTV or surveillance cameras and maintain these in good working condition.
Rep. Duterte cites need for stricter regulations on firearms control
after traffic enforcer gunned down in Cavite
DAVAO CITY - First Congressional District Representative Paolo Duterte has called on the Philippine National Police (PNP) to strengthen its efforts in regulating gun ownership, starting with imposing more rigid screening procedures in issuing licenses to possess and carry firearms.
A traffic enforcer who was shot dead in cold blood by a drunk motorcycle rider in Tanza, Cavite, is just one case that shows why the PNP should revisit its regulations and procedures in issuing gun ownership licenses, Duterte said.
