Shooting in Duisburg: NRW orders surveillance systems

After the shooting in Duisburg, the police set up cameras around the crime scene and ordered surveillance systems for nationwide use.

After the shots in Duisburg, in which four people were injured, the police not only set up cameras around the scene of the crime, but also ordered ten mobile surveillance systems for nationwide use. “The police cannot and must not rely on random amateur recordings,” said NRW Interior Minister Herbert Reul (CDU) of the “Rheinische Post” (Wednesday). The surveillance systems should be delivered in the third quarter of the year and used at neuralgic points in NRW cities.

At least 19 shots were fired last Wednesday evening during a clash between the Hells Angels rock group and a Turkish-Arab clan in Duisburg. The police then set up cameras on two trailers at the crime scene. Less than a week later, shots were fired again on Tuesday afternoon in the north of Essen. There is one seriously injured, a 34-year-old man from Bottrop. The background was initially unclear.

Conditions for video surveillance: Criminal offenses were committed at the location

A prerequisite for the use of the video systems is that criminal offenses have been committed repeatedly at the location or there is reason to assume that criminal offenses of considerable importance, such as murder, manslaughter, arms or drug dealing, are being arranged, prepared or committed there.
