MIRI: Strategic areas in this city will be equipped with smart cameras as part of the smart-city initiative, said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said these cameras would help reduce crime as they were linked to the police system.

“The strategic areas will be connected to cameras that have 360-degree vision that allows the city council (MCC) to monitor what is going on.

“I have seen this being used in Seoul as well as other cities that have advanced technology. We will expand this to other municipalities such as Bintulu, Sibu and Kuching,” he said.

He said this when officiating at the launch of the Miri City Hall here on Monday (Nov 15).

Abang Johari said Miri, like Kuching, would have a command centre, allowing the city to be in line with future technology.

“I congratulate Miri for transforming into a smart city and having an iconic building, which is in line with the state government’s post-Covid-19 development strategy (PCDS) 2030.

“The whole state will be equipped with digital equipment. In Kuching, we have one that controls road traffic and make sure the whole city is safe,” he said.

The chief minister added that Miri had been chosen to try the smart city concept with the required connectivity, connecting the utilities and public facilities to the command centre.

“In other words, the management, administration and the services rendered are also efficient. Utility bills and assessment taxes can be paid via the press of a button. This will change the whole relationship between the citizens and the local government,” he said.
