Every traveler’s face enjoying a tour of the Nusa Penida beach area, Klungkung, Bali will be monitored with a camera. The Klungkung Regency Government plans to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera that can recognize faces at several tourist locations.
“This is one of the important steps to integrate information and communication technology in daily governance, of course for the safety and welfare of the community,” said Klungkung Regent I Nyoman Suwirta in a written statement, Thursday, February 11, 2021.
Suwirta said the surveillance camera was able to recognize faces 25 to 50 meters away. The surveillance cameras will be installed on the beaches of the Nusa Penida area, namely Atuh Beach, Kelingking Beach, Pasih Uug, Angel’s Billabong, and the Devil Tears area.
These surveillance cameras will be installed to tighten the security of travelers and residents around Klungkung. Suwirta hopes that the cameras will reduce crime in the Nusa Penida Beach area.
“We hope this can increase efficiency in improving public services, and increase the comfort of residents and tourists,” said Suwirta.
