In order to improve public safety a state lawmaker introduced a bill to regulate surveillance video cameras in Baja California.
Assemblywoman Daylin Garcia said the proposal seeks to take advantage of technology by regulating installation, operation and the monitoring of surveillance video camera systems in public and private properties.
The legislator said Baja California has no regulations on video cameras. Other states like Baja California Sur, Zacatecas and Durango do have laws that regulate such systems.
Garcia emphasized the need of using technology, including drones, to ease law enforcement activities to prevent crimes and enforce laws. According to the lawmaker the bill, if enacted, would prepare the state to better address its public safety crisis.
