CCTV cameras are necessary in every police station
CCTV cameras have done wonders in gathering solid evidence related to crimes and in nabbing the criminals. Even after this, the issue of installing CCTV cameras in the police stations is being slow. The central government should issue strict instructions to the state governments to install CCTV cameras. The state government should show special interest in installing CCTV cameras in police stations. Every police station should have CCTV cameras.

Police work will be affected
Installation of CCTV cameras at the police station will affect the independence, privacy and functioning of the police. Then due to lack of budget, administrative apathy, departmental neglect, the work of installing cameras could not be completed.

corruption in police department
The main reason for not paying attention to the installation of CCTV cameras in the police stations can be said that somewhere the corruption prevailing in the police department does not become known. How the police personnel in the police stations are treated with the general public, it is not hidden from anyone. Even today the common man remains scared in the name of going to the police stations. This is the reason why the installation of CCTV cameras in police stations is being avoided.

fear of being exposed
Despite the orders of the Supreme Court, many states have not shown interest in installing cameras. Even though there is no strictness to implement them, not much attention is being paid to them. By installing such cameras in the police stations, all the activities happening there will be recorded, due to which there will be a fear of being exposed.

in order to protect human rights
The work of the police administration is related to the safety of the general public and the protection of their rights, but cases of death or torture in police custody also come to the fore. Incidents of police atrocities on the general public have also become common. In such a situation, from whom should the public expect justice? Human rights should be protected. For this, CCTV cameras should be installed in all police stations.

crime is increasing
Nowadays crime has increased so much that no place feels safe. Crime is also being carried out in police stations. Many policemen are also involved in crime. Perhaps this is the reason why there is no attention to the installation of CCTV cameras in the police stations.

mutual trust will increase
Installation of CCTV cameras in police stations will increase the efficiency of policemen. Along with this, transparency in the work will also increase. There will be a reduction in the allegations and counter-allegations between the general public and the police in police stations. The behavior of the police with the people in the police stations will improve. An understanding will develop between the police and the general public.

administrative negligence
Due to budget constraints, there is no focus on installing CCTV cameras in the police stations. Then the police officers are also not serious about such a system. Nowadays cases of rape keep coming up in the police stations too. Therefore, CCTV cameras should be made mandatory in every police station.

transparent police system
Incidents of non-reporting of victims or misbehavior by the police keep coming to the notice of the police station. Installing CCTV cameras in police stations can be a better step to make a transparent police system, but the police administration is not paying attention to this. Today CCTV cameras are installed everywhere, so why are police stations being kept away from this system?

Privacy Required
CCTV cameras are a good tool to bring transparency in the work. The work of the police stations is different. In crime investigation, sometimes action has to be taken beyond the rules. This action also exposes crimes. For this reason secrecy in the police station is essential. Apart from this, the lack of adequate budget in the police stations also becomes a hindrance in the installation of cameras.
