The Jakarta Police have installed 14 CCTVs along several roads throughout Jakarta to monitor traffic violations, but the city is not yet ready to levy penalties on violators based on the system.

Head of law enforcement at the Jakarta Police traffic unit, Adj. Sr. Comr. Budiyanto, admitted on Tuesday that the process would take a long time.

“The process takes time, especially in law enforcement in the form of reprimands,” Budiyanto said on Tuesday as quoted by kompas.com.

The CCTVs will be equipped with loudspeakers, Budiyanto said. Hence, they need to be calibrated to assure “validity”.

Other than that, coordination with the criminal justice system to maximize results is also needed along with the drafting of standard operating procedures.

Data on vehicles owners, the dissemination of information related to the CCTV system and trial runs before the implementation of the real thing is also required to make the system work effectively, Budiyanto said.

So far, out of 14 CCTVs, only the one on Jl. MH Thamrin in Central Jakarta has been equipped with a loudspeaker. (wnd)
