SINGAPORE: As part of moves to enhance security measures in Little India, 26 CCTVs will be installed in the vicinity of Race Course Road and Buffalo Road.
Police started installing the CCTVs on December 10.
The police had also announced it will be stepping up its presence at places where foreign workers usually congregate, such as Geylang, Golden Mile and Little India.
The move was welcomed by several shop owners and members of the public.
Tan Boon Huat, general manager of Grassland Express and Tours, said: "It gives people peace of mind. There's an additional layer of security. Even if something were to happen again, they can react immediately."
When Channel NewsAsia visited Little India on Wednesday, police were seen patrolling the area.
CCTVs were also being installed on lamp posts in the vicinity.
Sidewalks, which were damaged during the riot, were also being painted.
But what caught the attention of many is a board for people to pen their condolences to 33-year-old construction worker Sakthivel Kumaravelu, who died after a private bus hit him on December 8, and that allegedly sparked off the riot that night.
