    Don't call dummy cameras fakes, says Sukhumbhand

    Don't call dummy cameras fakes, says Sukhumbhand
    By The Nation
    Published on September 21, 2011

    Bangkok governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra yesterday maintained that installing fake surveillance cameras by authorities was practised internationally. He was responding to an online citizen board reporting a claim by pantip.com that 500 cameras in Bangkok were dummies.

    Sukhumbhand said all those cameras dubbed as fakes should not be called that. "There are many models, some of which just have outside frames. Some cameras are fake on purpose, because closecircuit television systems cannot fully be installed [in Bangkok]."

    Citing signboards promoting his policy of installing another 20,000 cameras throughout Bangkok, he said all were real and operational. He vowed an investigation into the issue, but said he needed to know where the fake ones were installed.

    Governor: No graft in CCTV purchase

    Governor: No graft in CCTV purchase

    Online news: Security

    People cannot accuse city authorities of corruption in the installation of the dummy security cameras, Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra said on Wednesday
    "Anyone has the right to criticise procurements by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, but people should not accuse the BMA of graft since the dummy cameras were also on the purchase list," MR Sukhumbhand said.

    He said the BMA decided to purchase surveillance cameras following the bombings during the 2007 New Year celebration in Bangkok.

    In November 2008, 2,046 CCTV cameras were bought and 1,325 of those were fake because of budget constraints. Bangkok authorities spent 330 million baht from the government's emergency budget to procure them, he said.

    The genuine cameras were priced between 34,000 to 130,000 baht each, while the dummy ones cost 2,500 to 2,700 baht, he said.

    330,000,000 baht / 2,046 = 161, 290. 323 baht / pcs

    Same procurement department who purchase GT200?

    I have real and fake cameras around my house. The fake ones are to deter criminals and the real ones are hidden so the criminals don't know there being videoed, if they go around destroying or avoiding the fakes.

    Sure. There are people very happy to give their bank details over the phone on receiving a call that they have won a major prize in a lottery they have never entered!
