NIA To Commission Its CCTV Surveillance Program Shortly
NIA CHARLESTOWN NEVIS (July 07, 2021) – The Nevis Island Administration (NIA) has installed a number of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras around Nevis as it prepares for the imminent commissioning of its state-of-the-art CCTV surveillance program.
“One of the primary responsibilities of any government is to keep people safe. We shall shortly formally commission our CCTV island-wide coverage in phases to better prevent and detect crime and provide another layer of security to our people.
“We have been working on this all during this COVID pandemic…We had a snag in terms of equipment where the incorrect cabling was sent, but I’m advised that that cabling should be here shortly and once that’s installed then the Centre will be fully operationalized.”
Local technicians continue to install cameras all across the island.
He applauded the efforts of Mr. Wakely Daniel, Permanent Secretary in the Premier’s Office and Mr. Theon Drew in the NIA’s Information Technology (IT) Department in moving the project forward despite the unprecedented setbacks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Premier Brantley also thanked Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris, Minister of National Security in the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis and Mr. Osmond Petty, Permanent Secretary in Ministry of National Security for their strong support of this critical project for the island of Nevis.
