MONTEGO BAY, St James — A $55-million Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance system, outfitted with 19 cameras to monitor the streets of the resort city of Montego Bay, was formally handed over to the St James police yesterday.
Security Minister Peter Bunting, in handing over the system, however, lamented the slow implementation of the project which had been under way since 2008.
Bunting was, however, upbeat over the prospects that the $55-million investment will have for the fight against crime.
He said that it will enhance the detection of criminal activities, help identify the perpetrators and should also act as a deterrent.
"... Criminals, over time, will identify where the camera coverage is and they tend to stay away from that area," he said, adding that it was evident in Mandeville where CCTV have been installed.
The security minister said, however, that the 19 cameras are not sufficient and announced that six additional cameras have been financed by the private sector.
