Kuwaiti officials are planning to install surveillance cameras to monitor beaches and expose vandalists of public utilities there, according to a municipal official.
Head of the Construction Department at the Kuwait Municipality Ahmed Al Hajairi said,“Although there are teams following up maintenance works, every now and then, acts of vandalism and subversion of toilets in particular are discovered.”
“This has raised the idea of installing surveillance cameras on beaches after coordination with the Interior Ministry to monitor subversion attempts,” he told Kuwaiti newspaper Al Jarida.
“There is no intention to impose certain fees. Toilets are accessible to everyone. The municipality works to properly develop them.” The official said that notices will be put up to warning and hold to account “saboteurs” of public utilities.
“These facilities have been provided to serve members of the public. Damaging them can hamper emergency teams and rescue operations, a matter that puts people’s lives at risk, ” he added.
The official also cited acts of vandalism against street signs and lampposts.
