We would like to inform the public that the installation of the Hi-tech CCTV cameras for the KMP area now stands at 68%.  The work has been carried out as part of the police investments in the CCTV provision across the country, on the Directive of H.E. The President.

So far 2547 cameras have been installed out of 3233 (78%), sites installed are 1038 out of 1248 (83%), cameras online are 1565 out of 3233 (48.4%), trenching 1083km out of 1258km (86%), monitoring rooms on line (Divisions) 11 out of 18(61%), fiber cable laying 1000km out of 1258km (79.5%), construction of the National Center (40%).

The purpose of the use of the CCTV is to monitor public places, where they are installed to assist in the prevention and detection of crime.  The completion of phase I, of this innovative project, will mark a significant point in what is a complex and intricate project.  The program works have been huge and we are grateful to the CCTV project team for all their hard work.

We are also actively using the CCTV system for gathering information, supporting patrols within the KMP area, directing investigations, tackling anti-social and criminal behavior, which range from nuisance to assaults and wounding, and other offences such as burglary, robbery and murder.  The recordings show the whole incident from the point the offender began to commit an offence to the end.
