Dumaguete City officials led by Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo visited Hangzhou to learn and be exposed to the latest and full range of intelligent security solutions available in China including Traffic Light System, most advanced drones in the market today, comprehensive command center monitoring and CCTV system with facial recognition and thermal capability.

This is in line with the objective of the Remollo administration to upgrade the CCTV system of the city that will now be capable to identify all the citizens, frequent guests, tourists and police characters with vital information registered in a virtual library or data base accessible to law enforcement agencies around the world for easier coordination and boosting the anti-crime campaign to create a safer and smart city.

Mayor Remollo’s delegation included Councilors Joe Kenneth Arbas, Michael Bandal, Edgar Lentorio, Dione Amores, Assistant City Administrator Dr. Dinno T. Depositario and City Legal Officer Manuel Arbon. The group left the Philippines November 28 and returned on December 2.

The administration of Mayor Remollo is now moving forward not only with the upgrade of the CCTV system but also the installation of Traffic Lights System and free Wifi connection throughout the city.

The visit to the headquarters of HikVision Technology, one of the top professional manufacturers of video surveillance in the world, was designed to showcase the latest inventions and innovations of their security solution products that featured the CCTV cameras now already installed throughout Dumaguete City.

These are the same units utilized in Hangzhou, China, a mega city of 10 million known as the hub of giant Chinese and international companies.

The trip was sanctioned by the Chinese government and while the travel was authorized, no government funds were used or spent during the entirety of the trip.
