BTC Spends $2 Million To Create CCTV

The Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) is defending itself saying that it is close to the completion of a transport network that supports closed circuit television (CCTV) for the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF).

This week, National Security Minister Dr. Bernard Nottage complained that BTC is taking too long to begin the programme.

He claimed that BTC let him down.

CCTV is the use of video camera positioned in designated areas to capture and transmit moving images to a specific place such as a monitoring station.

BTC’s Senior Vice President of Technical Services said the 200 plus cameras presently installed, which provide for a dedicated surveillance network is presently up and running but requires additional optimisation.

“We have expanded our fibre optic network and built out the dedicated wireless infrastructure as a transport network to support the CCTV system,” he said.

“We will complete the remainder of the sites once the power source has been connected.”

BTC was contracted this past January.
