Business sector interested in CCTV project

The local business sector is demonstrating an interest in the government’s initiative to set up CCTV cameras around Castries  to combat crime.

National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis, has disclosed that he had a very informative discussion last week with representatives of the Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce.

Francis told reporters yesterday that the Chamber seems to be very interested in the initiative.

“They are going to bring it to their members. They have also told me that they are going to invite me to speak to the members as to how they can work with us on the CCTVs;  so I am very happy that the Chamber of Commerce seems to have bought into the idea of having Castries as a pilot project – having CCTVs all over,” the minister said.

Francis revealed that a report is expected next month from a CCTV company.

In November last year  the minister said that some fifty two CCTV cameras had been installed with some twenty-six  being operational.

However Francis said at the time that the system is “a little archaic” and needs to be revamped.

    I really believe that the government should put up these cctvs and not tell the public exactly where it is… Let the public know the cctvs will be installed but not excatly where they are… if my memory serves me right, it was already done and it didn’t last to long.

    A very good suggestion. From the first comment I intern says never say were they going to be installed.
    Am suggesting that they should give electricity workers to install those CCTV cameras.
