National CCTV System to get additional funding for launch in February

National Security Minister, Hon. Robert Montague says nearly three billion Jamaican dollars is needed over the next two years for the full roll out of the national Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) System dubbed JamaicaEye.

JamaicaEye will allow citizens and business owners with cameras pointing in the public space to voluntarily provide their camera feed to a restricted team of vetted security professionals at two monitoring centres.

The national CCTV system will monitor public spaces islandwide and assist the authorities in providing a suitable response in the event of an incident, disaster or act of criminality. Government owned CCTV systems have already been several major towns across the island.
