CCTV cameras to be launched this week

Government will launch the long talked about closed-circuit television (or CCTV) programme this week.

Minister of National Security Dr Errol told the Senate Monday that the security cameras will help the crime fighting effort.

“We can’t put police men and women in every street corner,” the minister told parliament on Monday.

Over a year ago, government announced plans to embark on the project but cited financing as the main challenge.

In January, government entered into an arrangement with Digicel for the procurement, installation and maintenance of a CCTV system in St John’s city and the surrounding areas.
