Less than half of the 264 street surveillance cameras installed around the city work, Mexicali Police Chief Pedro Ariel Mendívil said.
The chief told La Voz newspaper that only 120 or 45 percent of cameras are working in the city.
Chief Mendívil said it is positive that the state plans to repair those cameras that are not working.
Some of those cameras are owned by the police, while others belong to other city and state agencies. So far, the authorities have repaired 30 of the 64 poles where some of the not working cameras were installed, Chief Mendívil said.
