The camcorders could have been operating since January of this year when, from the Government Delegation, authorization was granted to the Government Team of the Popular Party to start the recordings.
The Councilor for Citizen Security, José Luís Ruiz Guillén, has been surprised at the demand made this morning by the Popular Municipal Group on the implementation of the network of video surveillance cameras installed in various parts of the urban area of â€‹â€‹the city.
Ruiz Guillén has been surprised to know this requirement by precisely the former Councilor for Citizen Security, María Belén Pérez, since "to launch the connection to the operating system, that is, a comprehensive computer system is necessary to invest near of 18,500 euros, money included in municipal budgets that the Popular Party has had to spend well during the first six months of the year. "
The Edil has detailed that "in addition, to launch these video surveillance cameras it is essential to have an authorization that must be granted by the Delegation of Government and that was denied to a popular government that failed to properly justify its use."
José Luis Ruiz Guillén has informed that "currently there is only authorization to launch the surveillance cameras located on Avenida Juan Carlos I. An authorization that was granted last January and that the PP could carry out until May this same year. "
The Councilor for Citizen Security has assured that "they will be put into operation as soon as budget availability is exhausted due to the disability in the management demonstrated by the Popular Party."
