Video: Premier, Senator Visit Police CCTV Centre

April 28, 2016

[Updated with video] Earlier this afternoon, Premier and Minister of National Security Michael Dunkley and Junior Minister of National Security Sen. Jeff Baron paid a visit to the Police Comops Headquarters in Prospect for an update on the CCTV monitoring centre.

During today’s visit civilian operators demonstrated the system and Supt. James Howard provided an operational overview of the security monitoring system, including its features and functions.


Premier Dunkley said today, “The use of technology in the prevention and investigation of crime is a critical tool for law enforcement.

“The CCTV network uses the 150 cameras in support of the hard work of the men and women of the BPS, and like them it is a 24/7 operation that continues to prove a sound investment. The public can feel confident that the cameras are well sited, well maintained and used to support the BPS in their public safety role.


“The planned expansion of the network into Dockyard and St. George’s will further strengthen the security of those areas of local and tourist activity. This government remains committed to providing the infrastructure support needed to enhance the work of the Police,” added the Premier.

    Excellent timing with today’s robbery. With such distinctive clothing it shouldn’t take that long to follow the thieves’ track and arrest them. If not, then this whole CCTV network is useless.

    Premier Michael Dunkley / Sen. Jeff. Baron must understand if the rod is spared the child is spoiled :-( It is well beyond time to change Laws pertaining to violence, guns or any other weapons used in crimes!These wanna-be-gangsters aren’t afraid to go to jail and in reality find it better in prison than on the street…Sad yes but true :-(

    Only because it was Front street.

  4. Realist says:

    Such a valuable tool, well done to the BPS and the civilians operating the CCTV.

      Real valuable, costs us like $200,000 a week and rising.

  5. San George says:

    Further fleece of the taxpayer – so gullible. Desperate men don’t think about cameras. You have not seen anything yet – these are the ones procreating. Still want to live here? We have a pathway.

  6. Melanin man says:

    How they don’t know if I see cameras all over the island. Smh they know

  7. Frank says:

    Just another tool of the NWO!! Nanny State coming sooner than we think… smh

    On North Shore, some cameras are still pointed at the ocean or in people’s yards from the last hurricane.

    My bike was stolen during 9-5 on a Thursday on the SAME block as the police headquarters… I followed up with the BPS 5+ times to get them to check the security camera which is situated on the corner of the block. No one cared, no one looked. The BPS are either extremely lazy, or the cameras are fakes.

    • sage says:

      That figures, you are’t alone. Like I said, real value for money. We still haven’t heard the make of bike, direction they came and went, where exactly they parked, or seen the video where someones gait may help to identify them.
