In the capital, it is planned to adopt a new plan to ensure security in shopping centers by equipping with panic buttons to connect visitors with law enforcement agencies.
Officials emphasize that security services and representatives of shopping centers often try to hide thefts and other offenses on their territory. At the moment, alarm buttons are equipped in shopping centers, but only employees can use them. Shopping centers will be required to install alarm buttons at their own expense.
In addition, shopping centers will have to transmit data from their CCTV cameras to law enforcement agencies. The Moscow authorities intend to conduct constant monitoring of malls, as well as publish "black" and "white" lists on the portal "Our City".
A month ago, the first official results of security checks of shopping centers located in areas with the most aggravated criminal situation were published. The most "dangerous" with an indicator of 372 crimes in 2013 was named TC "Gorod-2" on the Entuziastov highway, in second place was the TC "Evropeyskiy" - with an indicator of 322 crimes. The third on the list was the Pike - 181 crimes.
