More cameras to help police fight drug trafficking near the German border

The Plzeň regional government is planning to install new security camera systems in border areas to help the police catch drug traffickers. New high-tech cameras will be installed in towns and on the road particularly in the Klatovy, Domažlice and Tachov districts, which are closest to the border with Germany. The west Bohemian border areas have long been the focus of international drug trade investigations, with methamphetamine Pervitin being one of the main products taken across state lines. German authorities have repeatedly criticized the Czech Republic for failing to effectively fight drug trafficking on its side.
