It been a long time coming, but George Town Police Station (GTPS) is much more secure tonight, now that CCTV cameras have been upgraded.

Last year, thousands of dollars worth of cocaine was stolen from a drug container on the GTPS compound, then earlier this year, brazen thieves jumped over the back wall and stole 8 dirt bikes on three separate incidents. The break-ins forced officers to tighten holes in the compound’s defence.

Today (May 9) Cayman 27’s camera were able to capture the installation of the new CCTV cameras. In addition to replacing the faulty cameras more were added, but the police were reluctant to say how many. Other notable changes since the spate of burglaries at the station included an additional chain linked fence topped with barbed wire that now runs around the entire compound.

Superintendent Robert Graham says the upgrades were needed and now the station is one step closer to being fully secured.

He told Cayman 27, “There has been some significant upgrades. We have installed a range of CCTV [cameras]. There are cameras throughout the perimeter of the police station.” He added, “I’m not prepared to go into the full the security apparatus that we have but I wish to just highlight that a lot of work has been undertaken and continues to be undertaken.”

No one has been charged in connection with the disappearance of the cocaine, however police say since have been no new burglaries at the station since the upgrades began.
