Nottage Upset Over CCTV

National Security Minister Dr. Bernard Nottage said he is upset at how the CCTV programme has been operating so far and noted that less than half of the cameras that should be up and running nationwide are in operation.

He said so far major issues have arisen with this programme, most significantly with the quality of the images some of the cameras have been capturing.

“I’m concerned about it because we ought I have been up and running now with 260 cameras or so by July 1 at the moment there are only around 100-plus cameras that are able to transmit.”

However, Dr. Nottage said he is assured by those installing the cameras that the remaining 160 should be ready by the end of the month.

However, he said there is still no way to say if those technical and transmitting problems would be solved by then.

Dr. Nottage said the countless delays in properly getting this programme properly off the ground upsets him.

He said he is hoping the partners working on the CCTV programme get it together fast.

“What is supposed to happen is that this week they are supposed to start the training of people monitoring the programme. There is supposed to be a soft opening and by early September there should be a hard opening.

“While we are already late, I hope we meet those deadlines.”
