It is planned to equip Kyiv gateways, avenues and parks with street monitoring cameras in the margins of the program “Safety city”, worked out by the department on emergency control. The system is called to “trace” thieves and murderers, fixing their crimes, and send police, rescuers and ambulance to a scene.

The system will be connected with the data base of the city citizens. Officials assure that files will be kept on criminals only, but there is no guarantee that ordinary citizens will not get in it.

According to experts’ estimation, Kyiv needs to install 35-40 thousand of such video cameras. Installation and connection of one camera will cost one thousand dollars minimum.

Police department asks the Kyiv city state administration to allocate 17 mln hryvnias for installation of 168 video cameras in the most crowded places. According to police representatives, at first this system will not reduce the number of crimes, but will assist with investigation.

Among cities “under observation” are London, Moscow, Perm and Tel-Aviv. Pilot project will be realized in Donetsk from the beginning of the next year.
