Integrated security system to become functional in December
The Kozhikode railway station is all set to unveil its integrated security system in December.
Two scanning machines to scrutinise baggage have been installed at the entry points to the station. An additional one has been installed in the parcel office to check the parcels being loaded from the station.
The three machines will become functional after configuration by next month.
“As part of the integrated security system, 50 closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras will be installed in different parts of the station. Some of these will be able to zoom in to specific points. A vehicle scanner will be installed at the entry points to the station. Once these systems are set up, complete security surveillance of the station will be possible,” R. Anil Kumar, Inspector of the Railway Protection Force, said.
In future, the security systems at different stations will be integrated to the respective divisions through satellite links to enable real-time monitoring.
