Saint Lucia has introduced 180 CCTV cameras providing coverage from Gros Islet to Castries,as part of measures to fight crime.
The announcement came Monday from Prime Minister Allen Chastanet during a press briefing at his office.
“We have just signed off on another $11 million to add now another 380 cameras that will be in Rodney Bay, Gros Islet the Northern part of the Island, saturated in Castries as well as in the South,” Chastanet told reporters.
“We believes that we need to be able to get up to something like 3 or 4,000 cameras in order to have full coverage on the Island, but we believe we are going to make a huge dent with this next batch of cameras coming in,” Chastanet asserted.
He outlined a number of other measures implemented by his administration to assist with law enforcement.
