Officers who control them receive more than 40 thousand phone calls a day from the 3.5 million residents in the city.
The cameras are said to work perfectly day and night.
Nairobi, in addition to being the capital of Kenya, is also the country’s largest city by population.
The primary languages of Nairobi are Swahili and English.
Crime is high as the city is the location of one of the largest slums in the world, and approximately 22 percent of the city’s residents live in poverty.
It is a very ethnically city, and Kenya’s major ethnic groups all reside there, including Luo, Luhyia and Kamba.
