Trinidad: Cops to get help in identifying criminals


by Sharlene Rampersad (Trinidad Guardian) Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says the Government has spent $80 million to install 2,500 CCTV cameras across the country to give the T&T Police Service an extra boost in its fight against the criminal element.

Speaking at a People’s National Movement (PNM) meeting in Chaguanas last night, the Prime Minister said during a meeting with the TTPS’ divisional heads on Monday, the issue of a lack of CCTV cameras was highlighted.

Rowley, as head of the National Security Council, met with the divisional heads at the Diplomatic Centre in St Ann’s amid the rising crime surge in the country.

PM Rowley said when he asked the senior officers what the Government could do to assist in their crime fighting efforts, several of the heads said CCTV cameras would allow the TTPS to identify criminals.

“We were able to tell them that we are on that track because the Government has just spent $80 million to provide 2,500 cameras at various locations across the country and they are being installed as I speak to you now,” Rowley said.
