New Security Cameras to Aid in The Current Crime Situation in the Country

With the increase in criminal activities the security forces will soon be able to link faces to crimes as the government announces its plan to install several closed circuit television cameras around the city. The project is expected to come on stream and be completed by August.

Cabinet Secretary, Dr Roger Luncheon said the increased criminal activities still remains a challenge for the administration and he hopes that the new system could boost the security sector.

The presidential spokesman noted that the headquarters for the monitoring and storage of the footage gathered will be housed at the national intelligence centre.

Dr Luncheon stated that in addition to the surveillance system more police presence is expected around Georgetown. He also stressed the need for greater community involvement in fighting crime. But while the cameras will be set up and stationed in the busy downtown areas, those areas may not necessarily be the hive of criminal activities.
