Erfurt (dpa / th) - According to the will of the Thuringian CDU parliamentary group, the state government should check whether video surveillance can be used in public places that are classified as dangerous.

The members of the Thuringian state parliament are discussing a corresponding proposal from the Christian Democrats today (session begins: 9 a.m.).

The CDU calls for a nationwide concept of how such video surveillance could also be properly implemented in terms of data protection law.

In Thuringia, there were three places classified as permanently dangerous last year, all of which were in the state capital Erfurt.

The classification allows police officers to check people's personal details without a specific reason or suspicion.

Under certain conditions, bags can be checked, for example.
