Vientiane Police Office is in discussions with Vientiane Police Headquarters and the Ministry of Public Security to replace or repair more than 50 broken closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras around the city.
The office recently reported a number of cameras were broken in areas across Vientiane; cameras normally used to help in investigations on crime and road accidents.
Earlier this month the office spoke to police headquarters and the ministry to establish why the cameras were breaking and how to solve the problem.
Vientiane Police Office Deputy Chief, Lieutenant Colonel Phommachan Suanbounma, said 51 cameras were down due to technical problems, high temperatures in control rooms and cables damaged in fires. “We have had to work harder to follow targets of crime as well as road accidents and traffic jams in Vientiane after the cameras broke,” he said.
Vientiane Police Office has warned government departments and private businesses to be more wary of office security during the rainy season after a recent spate of thefts.
Vientiane Police Chief, Lieutenant Colonel Salong Sengathith, said the wet weather sometimes meant security guards spent less time inspecting premises at night, which has led to the theft of valuables from offices becoming a major problem.
“Thieves will take the opportunity when security don’t do their job, and will jump into an office and steal valuables. The problem has been occurring in Vientiane for a few weeks now,” he said.
The number of crimes in Vientiane continues to rise despite police efforts to crack down on the criminals, according to a weekly report from Vientiane Police Headquarters on Wednesday.
From July 17-23, a total of 54 criminal cases were recorded in the capital, six more cases compared to the previous week, with robbery among the major crimes this week.
Some of the more brazen crimes recorded by police included: The robbery of Ms Mee Malayvieng, aged 24, a trader from Dongpalaep village in the capital’s Chanthabouly district. On July 17, she rode with her niece on a motorbike to visit her relatives in Donkoi village, Xaysettha district.
At around 2pm she went out from her relative’s house and shortly afterwards, two criminals followed her, using a motorbike without a number plate. The criminals rode their motorbike up beside her and used a sharp implement to threaten her before taking her motorbike, jewelry and other properties to escape the scene. Police are looking for the criminals.

Fairport, US – Bosch Security Systems has launched the Automatic Fire Detector 440 Series of analog addressable devices. The new series, consisting of seven detectors and four bases, includes detectors with photoelectric, heat and carbon monoxide sensors for maximum reliability and reduced false alarms.
The detectors are also designed with Bosch’s powerful Dual Ray Technology, which provides extremely reliable fire detection. The technology’s dual-optical sensor uses two LEDs (one infrared and one blue) to scatter light. The detector compares the intensity of the different wavelengths to determine smoke density and particle size. This allows it to differentiate between smoke particles and other particles – such as dust or steam – that can cause false alarms in other detectors.
