Moscow Metro Police Will Identify Drunken Passengers Via CCTV
June 18, 2014 17:31


Moscow metro Police will identify drunken passengers via CCTV cameras, for which the special software is being currently developed.

This was reported on Wednesday by Moscow 24 with the reference to the head of Department of Internal Affairs in Moscow metro Igor Bozhkov. According to him, the intelligent video surveillance system will allow cameras to react to people with shaky gait and altered facial expressions. Now metro experts prepare technical documentation for the development of such a system.

“It is possible theoretically, but it is not clear exactly how the camera will work," added Bozhkov. According to him, it is assumed that the camera will respond to suspicious persons, and then will send the signal to the monitor, drawing attention of the police officer on the offender. While an ordinary police officer can only detain a drunken passenger, but the report will be filled by an inspector at police desk, which can be found on every station. Metro security staffs that watch turnstiles do not have the right to arrest violators as well. They can only stop the offenders and call the police. In this regard, experts expressed their doubts that intellectual surveillance system will really help reduce the number of drunken passengers. Now, on each station there is only one inspector, while it takes about half an hour for him to fill an administrative offense report and besides that he has to look for witnesses.

During this time, the camera will likely record a few drunken passengers more. Head of the Moscow subway Ivan Besedin demanded to apply more stringent measures against violators who deprive passengers comfort. "The tougher measures against violators of the metro rules of conduct to be taken, the more order to be on the stations and more comfortable the passengers will feel. Everything will be done to toughen the penalties for those who deprive passenger comfort and create inconvenience to them," he said. According to the Moscow metro police department, in 2013 Moscow police filled nearly 70,000 cases for being intoxicated in a public place. Fines range from 500 rubles to 1.5 thousand.
