Assembly bill criticized.
The Chairman of the state Public Safety Council Juan Manuel Hernández said Baja California is not ready to move forward with a project that might created a new law enforcement super center.
The state has plans to approve a new public-private agreement that will lead to open the first system of coordination, command, control, communications, computing and intelligence, also known as C5.
The system would include around 400 street cameras statewide, among other features with an investment of 690 million pesos or $40.5 million in the next decade.
Hernandez said the state lacks enough police officers and doesn’t have adequate emergency protocols to respond to emergency phone calls. Council members have stood against the project until other public safety and justice administration needs are addressed.
Members of the legislative Commission on Tax and Budget approved the bill that would create C5.
According to lawmakers, the system would attack criminal activity by decreasing emergency response time.
A protest Wednesday that lead to the cancelation of an Assembly special meeting was caused by the bill.
