The Jakarta Police have submitted to the city administration a proposal for a Rp 33 billion (US$2.2 million) grant to procure more CCTV cameras for the Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE) electronic-based ticketing system.
“The Rp 33 billion grant will be used to procure new cameras to be installed in 20 intersections,” the acting head of the Jakarta Transportation Agency, Sigit Wijatmoko Sigit, said on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com.
He said the administration was discussing a mechanism in which to disburse the fund, given that the 2019 budget did not take into account the grant.
“We could add the grant to the 2019 budget revision. However, the police traffic unit would want the fund to be disbursed as soon as possible,” Sigit said.
Previously, the Jakarta Police proposed that 50 additional CCTV cameras be added to support the ETLE system.
Four of the system's cameras currently monitor Jl. Sudirman and Jl. MH Thamrin in Central Jakarta.
The ETLE system was implemented on Nov. 1 following a trial period that began the month prior. (rai)
