Coronavirus: Thermal cameras to be used for traffic checks during curfew

Police will be using a number of thermal cameras belonging to the national guard and drones to monitor traffic during the night-time curfew it was announced on Wednesday.

The national guard system includes a number of long-range cameras with a range of up to 20 kilometres which are installed at fixed points while unmanned aircraft will be used for aerial observation, daily Phileleftheros reported. Mobile cameras located in 4×4 wheel drives will also be operational from Wednesday.

The images will be transmitted in real time to the research and rescue coordination centre, police and other government services from Wednesday on.

The system is usually used to identify and monitor targets near the coast but will now be used to monitor road traffic under the new stringent measures which ban traffic from 9pm until 6am.
