CCTV Islandwide cameras not operational yet says NSM Weeks

First announced in the 2021 Throne Speech, Bermuda is yet to see the full implementation of the much talked about upgraded CCTV system.

The system was supposed to be up and by November last year. November came and the new completion date was then shifted to the end of April this year.

Now, with just one week before the end of April, Michael Weeks the Minister of National Security, today announced the CCTV project is 67% completed.

According to the Minister: “To date, 150 cameras have been installed, 60 cameras are in operation and the command centre infrastructure is now at 95% completion.”

However, there is no mention of when the system will be fully operational.

Mr. Weeks did say though: “As the public may be aware, the CCTV initiative was delayed due to numerous storms last summer. Over the next month, roadwork and new pool installation will continue as more sites are brought online.”

He added: “ I am confident that as we now full operational capacity, the benefits will be visible to all residents and visitors of Bermuda.”

You may remember a four million dollar contract was signed with Digicel in July of last year for the upgrading of the island’s CCTV system.
