CCTV In All Museums

By Indika Sri Aravinda

Closed Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV) will be installed in all the museums around the country, Director General of Archaeology Dr Senarath Dissanayake said.
Dissanayake told The Sunday Leader that the CCTV cameras will be installed in 32 museums with some of them already having police security.
The move comes after the Colombo national museum was broken into and Dissanayake said that security in all the museums will be strengthened by next year.  He said CCTV cameras will be installed at museums in Kotte, Tissamaharama, Matara, Kataragama, Kandy, Sigiriya, Anuradhapura, Pollonaruwa, Thanthirimale, Mihintale, Jaffna, Vavuniya, Deegawapiya, Trinco, Kuchchuweli, Panduwasnuwera, Yapahuwa and Dambadeniya. He also said that lightning protectors will be installed at Adams Peak and Kotte.
However he also said that reports that lightning had struck the Sigiriya rock and damaged it were false.

    It is a good move.Not only installing CCTV is enough I suggest all these CCTV s
    must be linked to Police CCTV division so that they can be monitored 24 hrs365 days.For a start Colombo museum will be first I suggest so in future Police Dept will not be shamed not protecting Natonal Museum which is situated very closed to PM office SIS Office etc.
