Look up and chances are, someone is looking down on you.
There are 273 government operated cameras at 93 locations across Cayman.
And those who operate them, want more. An invasion of privacy? Or a must-have for fighting crime?
“Though we do cover a significant percentage of the island, I think there’s a good chance to get better quality, with better light,”said Julian Lewis, Director Department of Public Safety Communications.
“But we have worked with CUC so we have a significant improvement on our ambient lighting.”
Improvements maybe, but as technology evolves, there’s always room for more.
“Budget permitting, I would love to see greater expansion in the Sister Islands, outer districts,” added Mr. Lewis.
“And as a matter of correctness, stepping up to the next level of technology, because the CCTV industry is advancing at a tremendous rate.”
Operators say, from January 2015 to March this year, nine people have been convicted and jailed as a result of evidence gathered using cameras.
