The installation of CCTVs project in Ipoh city was initiated after working papers on the Safe City Implementation Programme was presented to the Cabinet on 14 July 2004. The crime prevention strategy was formulated following a number of discussions with various Departments/Agencies (particularly PDRM), Institutions of Higher Education and Non-Governmental Bodies such as the MCPF, FOMCA and REHDA.

One of the proposals was the installation of CCTVs in areas with high street crime rates. In achieving the intended aim, 25 LAs, including the Ipoh City Council, were selected to install 496 CCTVs. The Ipoh City Council received 24 units.


To fulfil the initiative of the National Key Result Area (NKRA) in reducing crime, particularly street crime, throughout the country. The use of CCTV can be optimised through careful planning, efficient management and continuous monitoring to improve safety.


The CCTV control rooms are located one each in the MBI Enforcement Office and IPD Operations Room in Ipoh. The control rooms operate 24 hours a day. Cooperation between the two agencies has made the optimisation in the use of CCTVs in Ipoh a success.
