ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Commissioner of Police Mr Mark Collins said in a major fight against crime, CCTV cameras across the Virgin Islands are being re-installed.

Premier and Minister of Finance Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1) had signed a contract on September 9, 2021, for just over $411,000 with Cable and Wireless BVI Ltd to rebuild the backbone surveillance infrastructure destroyed during the hurricanes of 2017.

“We are happy to announce that the re-installation of CCTV cameras in Virgin Gorda is complete. Lots of hard work and contributions from many, both in the private and public sectors, assisted in making this happen,” Commissioner Collins said on Friday, January 7, 2022, in a press conference.

The CoP said he wanted to particularly acknowledge the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force’s (RVIPF) Communications Team for “their hard work and dedication to the task.”

All installations expected to be in place this year- CoP

“Work continues, in restoring CCTV simultaneously on Tortola. We hope to have all installations in place during this year, 2022,” he said.

With the level of importance the Government placed on this restoration project, funding was secured through the Caribbean Development Bank and matched with funds from its capital expenditures to expand on the previous surveillance system, providing a more reliable, resilient coverage and less vulnerable to disaster.

Once completed, the new CCTV surveillance system is expected to provide the critical support to the efforts of law enforcement in detecting and preventing crime.
