At least 46 body-worn cameras were handed over to law enforcement officers of the Land Transportation Office Region 7 (LTO-7) on Thursday, Sept. 2.

LTO-7 Director Victor Caindec himself led the deployment this morning at their office.

These cameras are part of the more than 1,500 distributed at various LTO-7 offices nationwide.

All district offices under LTO-7 here in Central Visayas will be provided with it and it will be assigned to each member of their law enforcement teams.

Caindec explained that it was also procured so that they could use it when they needed to document its “critical activities” such as when they will be conducting apprehensions of violators.

Apart from this, he added that it will also protect law enforcement officers against traffic law violators.

Each camera is directly connected to the LTO Central Operations Center in the capital. It has a sim card and GPS to easily locate its user in real-time.

All data, Caindec said, will be collected in their server dock once their enforcers are already off from work.

To ensure that altering or tampering with the content of this footage does not happen, only the LTO head office has the capacity to access its data.

LTO-7 is still waiting for the official guidelines and go signal from their head office for these cameras to become fully operational.
