By setting up video surveillance of public areas, the Capital and the Ministry of the Interior want to influence the reduction of crime, traffic safety and the general safety of all citizens, while respecting the highest standards of privacy protection.
This was announced after a meeting between the Minister of Interior Affairs Mevludin Nuhodzic and Mayor of Podgorica Ivan Vukovic.
During the meeting, Nuhodzic emphasized good cooperation with the Capital’s Protection and Rescue Service.
"In partnership with the Capital, we will also work to create a National Training Center for members of the protection and rescue system," Nuhodzic announced.
According to the Ministry of Interior, Vukovic said that this cooperation would soon result in new projects aimed at improving the security situation in Podgorica.
"The most important project in this part is the establishment of video surveillance in the capital, on which the people from the Ministry of the Interior have been working hard for several years, so that in this way we get a very effective tool to combat the various negative phenomena we have in the city, which influence all of us together, Vukovic said.
It was jointly agreed that cooperation in the field of traffic safety, as well as communication with representatives of local communities, would be intensified in the coming period, in order to bring the Capital, the Ministry of Interior and the Police Directorate closer to the citizens.
